UberMenu 3

If you follow the Installing Updates instructions, it should answer all of your questions, but here are a few FAQs just in case.

Will I lose my settings when updating?

No, your settings are stored in the database; only the files in the plugins/ubermenu directory will be replaced. You should never edit the UberMenu plugins files, so this should not be an issue. If you have added files in the /custom directory, they should automatically be backed up and restored after updating if your installation is running properly, but taking a backup of the /custom directory is a good idea just in case.

Of course, you should always back up your site before running any sort of update so that you can revert in case something goes wrong.

If you are updating from UberMenu version 2, please be sure to read and follow the UberMenu 2 to UberMenu 3 Migration Guide
