Announcements Updating one or many Geeklog sites do not must be an issue. This is how I do the job: I prepare the files with the necessary modifications for a single site, then I upload all files by ftp for a first site. I updated this site using the dedicated script and I check everything works perfectly. Then I repeat this process for each site.

Please note: With Geeklog 2.1.0 plugins developed for Geeklog 1.8.2 or older which install and/or access blocks, or access article topics, most likely will be not compatible. If you use any plugins that perform these functions please check with the plugin developer to make sure they are compatible before upgrading Geeklog. If you are not sure about 1 or more plugins and still wish to upgrade your Geeklog website then either disable the plugin(s) or uninstall it. All Core plugins have been updated and support Geeklog 2.1.0
