WordPress Plugins

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.

WordPress Themes

Like plugins, themes are updated frequently by their authors. Oftentimes this is to fix performance or display issues with the theme. If your WordPress theme has a display issue that remains unresolved, this can cause your site to look unprofessional and less trustworthy to potential customers.

As with plugins, WordPress themes can fall victim to security vulnerabilities, so it’s critical to keep them updated in this regard too.
