Importance of keeping your WordPress Version Up-To-Date


Written by tim on September 30, 2013

Protect your WordPress Site by using the Latest Version Available

An important element to keeping your WordPress site secure is to stay caught up with the latest versions available for download.  WordPress makes staying up-to-date easy with these simple steps to follow:

  1. WordPress does a good job keeping its software, themes, and plugins updated with new versions and patches to keep any new security vulnerabilities at bay.
  2. If you have an update to install you will see a prominent yellow notification bar across the top of your WordPress dashboard.
  3. The name of what needs the update is also displayed within the notification.
  4. To install, simply click the link and it will perform the update without having to leave the dashboard page.

*You can also check what version of WordPress your currently using by clicking the WordPress logo located in the top left corner and selecting About WordPress from the drop down menu.  This will bring you to a page that states what version your running and information about the new features associated with the latest version your on.  It will also prompt you here if your WordPress version is out of date and will provide a link to download the latest version.

Gecko exceeded our expectations in every way with their efficiency, creativity and professionalism...our non-profit hasn't had a fully functional site that we are proud of in years, and not only did Gabe, Grace & the staff at Gecko completely turn this around, they helped us learn along the way. Thank you!

These guys are amazing! Gabe knew exactly where to go in the code and want to fix and had all our issues repaired in minutes! As a previous owner of a software company I would give them the highest rating possible!

Had some updating issues with our website and Gabe provided an expedited response to our situation so we could keep the site up and running smoothly. Additionally, he tweaked a few things he noticed weren't correct so the site would have better SEO. Thanks so much!
