We all know our WordPress website and plugins should be updated regularly but in reality it can feel scary to hit that update button.

In this webinar you will learn how to update your WordPress website safely and confidently.

What will be covered

You will learn about the fundamental concepts that make up a WordPress website, why they need to be updated, and what could potentially happen if you don’t update your site. We’ll look at how to back up your website before making updates to plugins, themes, or WordPress core as insurance against things going wrong.

What outcomes will be achieved

You will leave the session with the confidence and skills to update your WordPress website whenever it’s required now and in the future.

Who should attend

Anyone who owns or is responsible for a WordPress website. You don’t need to be technically minded as Rob will use plain English to explain the concepts and processes involved.
