Do you want your WordPress website to be secure and up-to-date? Of course, you do!
Keeping WordPress updated is not just ideal, it’s critical! Failure to update could cause certain aspects of your site to malfunction or even compromise your site, leaving it open to hacker attacks.
Every so often, themes, plugins, and WordPress itself will require updating. WordPress updates help keep your website safe and bug-free as well as make sure you have the newest features, better compatibility, and a smooth WordPress experience. A big part of WordPress updates is security releases. So, even if you’re not currently looking for the next coolest functions and features, keep in mind that you still need to keep your site secure. Most WordPress hacks happen to sites that have not been updated!
When I perform maintenance on a website, all themes, plugins and WordPress itself are updated to keep your site in top condition. Unfortunately, like with any program changes, an update may not play well with others. This could be due to a variety of things such as plugin and theme conflicts or programming errors. Have no worries! Before I perform any updates, I ensure a backup of the entire site and database is created. This way if any unexpected changes occur, we will be able to quickly repair any unwanted incompatibilities that arise.
Your website is an incredibly important part of your business. Updating your site ensures that your visitors are getting the most current information and have a smooth and enjoyable interaction with your site. Please let me know if you have any questions about your website. I’m here to help!
