February is Update Your Bondware Site Month!Our staff has been busy with lots of compatibility updates to the Bondware core and selected modules this month. For the most part, these are required updates that maintain compatibility between the web hosting platform and various open source software packages that are included in a Bondware site. Reasons for these changes include security patches, new web standards, new capabilities, etc.
If you are a Bondware admin, you have probably seen the Admin notifications about available updates for your site. If you are responsible for the smooth operation of the site, we encourage you to click into that and review the updates listed there. As you may recall, routine updates to the Bondware core and modules are included as part of our service.
Updates to the Bondware core and individual modules are performed one at a time, but we encourage you to apply all available updates during a single session for best results. This will ensure maximum compatibility between the sites core and installed modules.
The most common solution to customer support issues with a Bondware site is to ensure that all available updates have been applied.
