Is it safe to update from WordPress 4.7.9 to WordPress 4.9.4 when using Suffusion?

Thank you for your cooperation.

Yes its fine but even better to update Wordpress to v4.9.5 which was released yesterday. There is also an updated version of Suffusion too check the link at the top of the forum or alternatively on GitHub.

Many thanks for your answer. WP 4.9.5 installed successfully.

I have tried to install suffusion.4.5.3.zip but it failed. Any hint?

There shouldn't be an issue. I have updated some of my sites without problem. Try disabling Suffusion by reverting to a default theme. The delete Suffusion and then upload the 4.5.3 version and enable it. The Suffusion settings will still be there as they are stored in the database. May be worth getting a maintenance plugin and enable it whilst you are doing this.

Hi @nileda, can you share with us if you receive any error messages when you try to install the theme zipped via the upload button?

Thank you
