Real Estate Website Tips: How to update your site, theme, and plugins


– Ignoring the updates
to WordPress itself, your theme and plugins. Themes, plugins, WordPress,
are all updated periodically for bug fixes, to add new functionality and to even correct
security vulnerability. All software has some
vulnerability and bugs and they’re generally minimal and many times the internal
team will find them before anyone else outside that. I mean, think about it. Many of the updates from Apple, Microsoft, on your Android device,
our individual applications that we use on laptops and phones. There’re fixes for a combination of bugs and security weaknesses and your WordPress
website is no different. The fix? Make sure that you keep
your plugins, theme, and WordPress core up to date. Log into your WordPress
admin, go to Dashboard and look under Updates and Plugins and there’s gonna be a number there, if any of those plugins or
Wordpress need to be updated. Now, a tip is delete any
unused or un-needed themes. There’s no reason to get notifications and feel that you need to update files if your site does not need them anyway, so remove them and it’ll
reduce your stress. And if you don’t log into your
Wordpress site very often, such as having an IDX or Home Search tools that captures your leads and pushes them out to a
dedicated real estate CRM, add a reoccurring event to your calendar so that you can log in
every two to four weeks just to check for updates. (bright, bubbly music)
