Updating Plugins

Unless you have a care plan, you need to update plugins yourself on a weekly basis (if not more). Developers who maintain the plugins are constantly making changes, improvements, and removing security vulnerabilities that could impact your website. By keeping your plugins up to date, you're keeping your website in tip-top shape. 

Fortunately, these updates are easy with WordPress. If there are updates available, there will be an orange notification in the plugin menu. Simply click to open and you’ll see which plugins need updating. Then click “update now”.

If you’re using plugins that are included in Maple Care Plan you can trust that everything will work just fine.

How to update plugins

Start by navigating to the plugin area on your website. You'll see a notification if a plugin needs updating. 

Then, click "update now" on the plugin that needs updating. 

Yes, it's that simple! But you're not completely done. 

Now, go test the plugin to make sure that everything is working as it should. If anything seem out of order, make sure to submit a support ticket.
