Keeping WordPress, your theme and your plugins update to date is often times overlooked or skipped as upgrades can often times cause issues and break things. While true, some updates are necessary for business needs – a theme update offers new functionality or a plugin update fixes a functional bug affecting your website.
An even more important side effect of having out of date versions of your CMS, Theme or Plugins is the increased possibility of being hacked. Most often, updates that occur are mainly functional enhancements but there are often also important security patches included in these upgrades. If you are having to upgrade related issues, have a hacked website or simply have questions about your current setup send me a message.
