Every time I log on to the back end i am greeted with the message "up date plugins" I am hesistant becasue it may change some things around on the pages, and I am beginning to understand how things are set up now. Will a big change occour on the back end if I update the plugins.
Generally speaking, you should be able to safely update themes and plugins on your WordPress site without major disruptions.
From time to time, there may be an issue that was missed during testing by the theme or plugin’s creator. For this reason, we always recommend you backup your site before updating. That way you can easily revert back to a previous version if anything goes wrong.
With that said, it’s critical to keep your website up to date at all times. Out-of-date themes or plugins are vulnerable to being hacked and your site being compromised.
So backup that site, and click that update button!
