Why do I need to maintain WordPress?

There is a common misconception among website owners that once your website is built, you can set it and forget it. You can just let it sit and linger forever without having to touch it. Unfortunately, this is not the case.

Much like a car, you need to regularly have it serviced to ensure that is operating efficiently and fix any issues before they become critical problems.

A Quick Primer on WordPress Core, Themes, and Plugins

Every single WordPress site needs to have a theme, which is a collection of files that determine the look and feel of your website. It is essentially what controls how your website looks.

WordPress can only do so much out of the box, and not everyone needs everything.  That's why WordPress was designed to be easily extended with the use of Plugins. That's why there are thousands of WordPress plugins that allow extend your site, allowing you to make it do anything you need.

Core, Themes and Plugin Updates

The development of the WordPress Core, and the different Themes and Plugins is undertaken by multiple teams of developers. This makes a never-ending stream of releases of new updates.

Whenever there is an update available for core, theme, or plugin installed on your site, you should (in most cases) apply that update. However, there are some instances where applying an update can break other parts of your site. Understanding which, why and when to apply an update requires you to understand what changes have been made and how it will impact everything on your site.

In general, most updates are related to adding new features, speed improvements or minor bug fixes, these can often be installed without issues as they won't have a serious impact on your sites functionality.

In some cases, updates are related to security, these should applied sooner rather than later. Security updates correct issues that have been discovered that make your site vulnerable to outside malicious actors who can take over your site to do things you do not want to happen, such as delivering malware to your sites visitors.

Where we come in...

The task of ensuring that your site is operating at its peak efficiency and while being secure is time-consuming. You need to understand what the updates are for and how the changes will impact your site. This takes you away from why you have a website for in the first place - working with your clients and running your business.
