Customizing wordpress Wordpress resources Backup and more Updates

Security is a big deal  when you have a website.  You don’t want to get hacked.  Take precautions early to prevent frustration later on.  There will always be hackers and spammers that will try to abuse your website.

Wordpress is quick to respond to security issues, and you will find that new releases are quickly released to help fix and bugs or vulnerabilities that come up.  This is why it’s important to keep your website updated.  If there are new versions of Wordpress update to those, you will see notifications in your Wordpress dashboard when they are available.  You can set the updates to be automatic on some hosts.

Update your wordpress on regular basis. Most updated of the plugins and themes can be done within the dashboard by selecting the item you want to update.  Wordpress itself updates on a regular basis you will see a notification if an update is available.  Before updating you should backup your wordpress, since updates can sometime break custom coding in themes.  If you don’t have any custom coding and plugins then usually updates is really straight forward.  You can also manually upgrade your Wordpress install.

Web technology Instructor

Providing Smart digital solutions online since 2001. I am considered a true web technology expert. Having professional experience in a wide range of digital areas. Everything from Search Marketing, Video Marketing, Content creation, User Experience, application architecture, and web programming.

Understanding how users flow through the web and learning what drives users to interact online has been the cornerstone of what I do. The more seamless the process the better the user experience and the more likely they are to interact again and share their experiences.

After launching my first websites I quickly realized that to get traffic on your site you need to be able to market online. Research and using personal experimentation as to what are the most successful ways to effectively drive traffic to my websites, I was able to successfully build multiple success eCommerce sites. I used my expertise to provide Search Engine Marketing Services SEO to 100's of clients.

In the advent of Social Media in 2006, I had identified it as an excellent opportunity to drive traffic and connect with users. I created many successful sites that integrated with Myspace and then later into Facebook. I was able to monitize the traffic on several platforms, driving in some cases 10K+ clicks daily to the various platforms. I continued to perfect the art of Internet marketing and adapt to new technology and changes.

In 2008 I created my first YouTube video, and channel. Realizing that there was another great opportunity with video I have been experimenting with video marketing and video monization. Youtube being the second largest search engine has a very bright future. As technology progresses the trend has always been quicker, easier means of delivering content always wins out. Images beat out text as they are easier and quicker for us to process, videos beat out images being the most efficient means of getting content to users. As bandwidth increases, and more platforms that can even easier deliver videos become available videos will be the trend for the future.

Understanding technology provides a means to better connect with users.

Applications I've created have entertained, informed and engaged tens of millions of people. I have over billions of page views on various platforms, and have sent millions of click through visitors.

I have developed hundreds of web applications, from micro sites to enterprise level platforms.
