WordPress Website Updates
Update of WordPress Plugins, Themes, and Core
- Out-dated WordPress themes, plugins, and version are the number one-way hackers gain access to your website (besides brute force hacks of your login).
- Even deactivated themes and plugins can leave your website system vulnerable.
- As best business practice I want to keep your website safe – without doing this, and if your site does get hacked then it will ultimately cost us both more time and therefore your money to put right.
- Keeping your WordPress website’s plugins / themes and core version up to date also ensures that the site is compatible with the latest internet browser versions (computer).
- There are a couple of ways that you can work with me on this – As best business practice I will make sure that the updates are done often as and when they arise – I will then send you an invoice at the end of the month for time taken to do this
- OR if you are signed up to a website development retainer with me then I will apply the updates automatically (you will therefore not receive a separate bill).
- Please note that the updates come through their 3rd party creators and WordPress themselves so I don’t know per say when they are coming out and need to be applied.
- Upon applying updates I will ensure that your website is working correctly and that any custom codes that we have used are applied and working still.
- All images required for a project must be sourced by the customer.
- The customer is responsible for ensuring that the appropriate rights to use in the imagery have been obtained.
- Any liability for any copyright infringement falls on the company displaying the imagery, which is considered the end user.
