Automatic Updates for
Website Security and Peace of Mind
As an ever-evolving open source venture, WordPress changes a lot for the better. And it’s up to you to make sure you update to the latest version.
Likewise, a powerful framework like Genesis evolves along with WordPress to maintain ease-of-use and amplify mobile and SEO functionality. Again, it’s important to update to the latest version.
The primary reason why keeping up with versions goes well beyond new features, though. The number one way bad guys infiltrate a site is through outdated themes, plugins, and old versions of WordPress. It’s become such an issue that many WordPress site owners now spend $79 or more every month to have an outside service keep things updated and safe.
With the automatic update feature of StudioPress Sites, you can rest easy knowing WordPress and Genesis are always at the current version. And coming soon, we’ll bring the same automatic update option to key plugins.
Prefer to do it yourself? No worries, you always have the option of turning automatic updates off and manually updating — its completely up to you.
