My site is about to launch, so I'm paranoid. Forgive possibly doofus question.

 

When my dashboard says,

"Please note: any customizations you have made to theme files will be lost" upon updating, that means changes to the CSS files, correct? If I've done no code work, the update should be smooth?

 

Thanks!

The note refers to customizations that you made in the core theme files (including PHP and CSS files). If you did not make changes to these core files, then the update should be smooth. (Making changes to the files must be done using base theme so they don't disappear when updating)
