WordPress websites include the core WordPress software files, usually a few custom plugins that are being used for some additional features and your theme design files.
On top of this there is a database that stores the content of your website so as you add to it, new content is added to the database.
Updates occur to the core WordPress files as they develop the software, add features and fix bugs. Our first task is to make sure these files are updated with each new release.
Plugin developers also update their software, often to keep it compatible with the core WordPress software and to make sure they use all of the latest features available. Plugins can be paid or free and you may be paying a one-off fee or an annual license to keep access these updates.
Either way, we will make sure your plugins are at the latest version for both security and compatibility reasons. Often if you leave to go too far out-of-date they will end up conflicting with another piece of software and cause a site issue.
Your design theme will probably change less often but will still need updating as we have seen that many website issues are caused by out of date theme files.
