WordPress, at its core, is a blogging platform. But through the use of plugins, WordPress’s functionality is endlessly expanded. Plugins can turn your WordPress site from a simple blog into a fully-fledged e-commerce shop.
As your website becomes more complex, it requires more attention in managing all the plugin updates. When your website has features such as credit card and payment processing, it’s even more important to make sure updates are regularly and correctly applied to your plugins.
