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.
