Why Monthly WordPress Updates
What in WordPress Needs Updating?
- WordPress itself.
- Themes (web design templates) that your webdesigner used.
- If using child themes, they need updating.
- WordPress plugins need more frequent updating. Some need to be updated every couple of weeks. If your web designer installed too many plugins, it’s because they want too many bells and whistles when in most cases rationalisation should be implemented. It’s no use having 2 or 3 active plugins that do the same thing.
- MySQL database update.
Automatic WordPress Updates
The benefit of automatic WordPress updates is freeing up your time but the problem of automation of WordPress updates is the possibility that an update can crash your site. Unless you’re using an uptime monitoring service like Sam’s (see below) you won’t know your site is offline and if it stays off line too long, what do you think will happen to your search engine listing?
