This is a major version update!

This version is mostly focused on website visitors engagement. It’s totally improved with brand new innovative features bringing live to your website and discussions.

As you can see we jump from 5.3.5 version to 7.0.x, so you should understand, that lots of things are changed. This is a totally different wpDiscuz. Therefore, we recommend you follow these steps before updating to version 7:

  1. You’ll lose old wpDiscuz template customization in the active WordPress theme /wpdiscuz/ folder. If you don’t have customized wpDiscuz template files, just ignore this note.
  2. Please check wpDiscuz v7 demo to make sure you want to update.
  3. Create a test/dev/staging website and try it, make sure it’s good for you.
  4. Try it with the plugins you use on your live website. Make sure it’s compatible with all them.
  5. If all is ok, and you’ve decided to update to the v7, please follow to the Update v7 Documentation
