Before the WordPress 5.0 scheduled release tomorrow and your update… be sure to update the WooCommerce plugin to the most recent version if you’re using it.
The WordPress 5.0 update is a major release that includes the new WordPress editor, Gutenberg.
Gutenberg changes the way we’ll do many things in WordPress starting with editing Posts and Pages. To learn more about Gutenberg visit https://wordpress.org/gutenberg.
There’s a Classic Editor plugin you can install to revert to the editor we’ve come to know and love until you’re ready to make the jump to Gutenberg.
Back to WooCommerce…as the folks over at WooCommerce have shared not updating your WooCommerce plugin before updating WordPress will break your e-commerce.
