Is A WordPress Website Really A Security Risk?
The whole idea of choosing a Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress, as your website technical platform is that it makes it easier to manage the website content (without needing technical staff to update the site). Unfortunately in Bulgaria there is a myth about a WordPress Security Risk.
As you should know, regular website content updates are necessary to obtain good Google Search Engine Rankings (SERPS).
One of the key elements of WordPress is the theme, and a few years ago you needed to buy a WordPress Theme from the likes of Theme Forest which would match your line of business or employ a WordPress developer to build the theme.
Unfortunately, creating a new theme ties you to the developer for support and any changes that you want to make.
Theme Forest WordPress Themes
Although there very many excellent WordPress themes designed, they all could have the following issues:
- They would dictate how you site looked from top to bottom.
- They were heavy and slow.
- They needed to be kept up to date with WordPress releases. Over the years we have come across many WordPress Themes that have become unsupported which creates many problems with WordPress and Plugin updates
- The themes relied on plugins like Visual Composer, Essential Grid and various slideshows that were comprehensive but slowed the website down.
