Upgrading a WordPress plugin is a quick and easy process that typically takes less than 2 minutes of your time (because it is mostly automated), and you can rest assured that all of your customizations and settings will be carried over.
All you do is head to the Plugins tab in your WordPress dashboard, see a notice that the plugin is out of date, and click the Update Now button to automatically update the plugin:
WordPress then automatically grabs the latest version and installs it for you – no more manual input required.
- You're all set! You have successfully upgraded over to the latest and greatest version of the Shareaholic WordPress plugin, without losing any of your settings.
