You’re probably thinking “Wait. Didn’t I just update that WordPress Plugin yesterday?”
No, you’re not imagining things! You probably did update that plugin yesterday. And you might be updating it again tomorrow!
Here’s the secret: when you start noticing plugin and theme developers madly pushing out updates it’s your sign that a new version of WordPress is on the horizon. WordPress development moves fast – so fast they push out nightly beta versions called “Bleeding Edge Nightlies” so that developers can test and update the latest versions.
If you want to know more, you can visit my blog to get a sneak peek of the new WordPress version, highlighting some pf the major changes bloggers can expect to see.
The good news is that if you are running a plugin on your website that has a conflict with the new version of WordPress, a savvy plugin developer should be able to fix the problem before it brings your website crashing down around your virtual ears.
So go ahead and apply those updates – they mean your plugin developer has your back.
And, if applying updates makes you break out in a cold sweat, you might want to grab a copy of The No-Fear Guide to Updating WordPress so you can update with confidence!
