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  It will also prompt you here if your WordPress version is out of date and will provide a link to download the latest version.

Gabe at Gecko helped me not only with my business site, but also with my business in general, helping me imagine and re-imagine the user-experience. He sat with me for an hour, two different times, as I talked through what I wanted my site to be capable of, and then pointed me in a direction of how to make it happen. I am not entirely tech-savvy, and he gave me the tools I needed to take the next steps...and I always know I can call on Gecko if I get stuck or need a second look at what I've created. I highly recommend Gecko!

Gecko Designs was a pleasure to work with while building out a brand new website. They understood what we were after and had creative and useful ideas to help us reach our goals for the website and for our organization. Communication was friendly and reliable throughout the process and they were available to troubleshoot any issues that arose before we went live, and after. Highly recommend!

From intro meeting to final website, this was a great experience. Gecko created exactly what I was looking for, and was very timely and affordable. Great collaboration, lots of changes, and they made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I could not recommend more.
