Why is it important to update WordPress Core, Plugins and Themes?
WordPress and its plugins and themes are no different from Windows or OS, and other computer software and applications. They require periodic updates – sometimes to provide new features and sometimes to fix known bugs. Although you may not require new features, its very important that bugs are addressed, as they are often related to security issues. When the core code, plugin or theme update is released that fixes a bug, we recommend you update as soon as possible to have the most secure and stable version of your website. A bug in your theme or plugin can affect your whole installation.
