WordPress Website Updates

WordPress Websites and Blogs by Sara OharaThe easiest way for your WordPress website to get hacked is if it’s not kept updated.

WordPress: Some Hosts updated your WordPress automatically.

Themes: You don’t ever need to update any Theme other than the one you’re using.

  1. Ideally, you have a Back-up plan with your Host but I suggest doing a Mini-backup: in your Dashboard. Go to Tools/Export/All Content/Download Export File/Save. This could save you a lot of time ($) if there is a problem.
  2. If you don’t edit your website often be sure to check the Dashboard weekly to see if updates need to be done. AND only do 1 update a day.
  3. Plugins: You only need to update the Plugins you are using – if they are not activated don’t bother updating them.
  4. After updating anything click around your website to make sure all is well. Mishaps usually occur when plugins conflict with one another.
