I often get called in to look at a website running WordPress with out of date plugins. I ask the owners why they haven’t updated and often the answer I hear is one of fear.
“I am worried that it will break things,” they say.
If you are in the same boat, don’t feel bad. It is still very common, and we here at PressTitan want to help change that.
Some of the biggest issues with running high-performance WordPress can be related to out of date plugins on updated server software, updated themes, or updated WordPress core. Having your plugins be out of sync with the rest of your website is a recipe for disaster.
