With a WordPress website, you likely have plugins installed that allow your website to offer functions for everything from contact forms to pay portals. Occasionally plugins require updates for security patches, new features, better performance, or expansions created by the developer. Keeping your plugins up to date is essential to the function of your website.
Before you make any updates make sure there has been a recent backup for your website.
If you have access to your website admin, WordPress makes it easy to take care of your updates. Before you make any updates make sure there has been a recent backup for your website. If your website hosting is through 1Eighty Design, an automatic backup is performed every night and kept for two weeks. Even though the plugin updates should take less than 5 minutes, your site could go into maintenance mode, so it is best to do this in off-peak hours.
