Hi I want to update 3.2 to the current version. I seem to break things sometimes when I do these things
So any pointers will be greatly appreciated. Like the best way to save a backup of the current theme, and do I lose my customizations I made?
Thanks

If you do a backup and then use the manual backup as outlined here you are pretty safe. If something doesn't go quite right you can just switch back to your current version.

That's what it says juggledad. It's a site I haven't done much with, but I'm going to get back at it

I would start with a database backup and then install 3.7.3 manually in the theme folder so you have both and try swapping and seeing what happens. If you have problems, then I'd install 3.3 then jump to 3.5.3 then 3.7.3
