WordPress Core and Plugin Upgrade
This service is only available to WordPress Plus Minus and Custom theme clients that have their own hosting. If you proceeded with one of these services and opted out of the upgrades you can add it anytime by submitting payment below.
WordPress upgrades are included for all Artbiz hosted accounts automatically.
A Core Update is the WordPress application it self. A note at the top of your admin area will appear that says something like “WordPress 3.5.1 is available! Please update now.” This is a major update and Artbiz tests the core updates with each and everyone of the plugins for compatibility. If a plugin needs to be replaced we will do that and provide you with the details. We also run periodic scans of your site to detect Malware. The annual fee for core updates and all plugins is $67.50 + GST and includes access to the WordPress tutorials.
If you have one of our WordPress Themes and there’s an update, we’ll do that too.
While we will do our best to provide solutions to problems that arise, it is beyond the scope of Artbiz to provide coding repairs to WordPress itself. The team at WordPress.org work diligently to provide any core bug fixes in their upgrades which I monitor and install as required.
Artbiz will provide support and updates for the installations and configurations completed by us. Not included are user installed plugins and themes. We will however endeavour to update user installed plugins within the upgrade services. Should a user installed plugin break your site additional fees will apply in order to fix any problems.
Once you payment has been submitted I will contact you at the email used to submit your payment. I will then request your WordPress login credentials so I can get to work. When the upgrades have been completed I will notify you by email which will also include your login access to the WordPress for Artists Tutorial site.
All our payments are currently handled by PayPal. You do NOT need a PayPal account to complete a payment however. During the checkout for a purchase, upgrade or renewal transaction, you will be brought to PayPal’s website to complete your payment.
On their website, you will be presented with a PayPal login screen. Feel free to log-in to your PayPal account if you have one as this will usually speed up the process. If you do not have a PayPal account you will need to click the small link that reads something like “Click here to pay by credit card” or “Click here to pay without logging in”. You will then be required to fill out a standard credit card payment page. Once completed, you will be returned to our website for time line information.
