I've recently been asked to help someone who's neglected their WordPress for a long time. They're currently on 3.5. I need to get them current. I'm considering the following options:
- Manually upgrade step-by-step. Outside of the pain of more than 20 steps, I'll also likely need to upgrade plugins when the old version no longer works with the next WP version.
- Export the site contents using the WP export, then re-import the content. I've got a few plugins that won't export (and I'm not sure I want to deal with import/export of them from the database directly).
Any advice before I spend more time than I'd think it's going to take?
