Your WordPress plugin’s security and functioning depend on how quickly you update it. I’ve suggested ways to upgrade your WordPress plugin so that you don’t lose the customizations you’ve made.
“Do your backup time to time without thinking about customizations”
Since the WordPress CMS is open source, hackers may examine the source code to identify holes in your website. Because of this, WordPress CMS and plugin developers often provide updates to close security gaps and maintain site security.
Recommendations for updating your WordPress plugin effectively without losing the personalization:
<span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>Regular backups</span>:
By conducting frequent backups of your site’s database and files, you can always roll back to the previous version without losing important data.
<span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>Avoid editing the plugin core</span>:
Customizations are distinct from the original plugin or theme, therefore plugin changes have no impact on them. Avoid altering the plugin’s core while changing it. To make more modifications, you may install a functionality plugin to your website.
<span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>Use hooks actions to extend your plugin functionality</span>:
WordPress offers hooks with actions and filters so you can simply upgrade and adjust your plugins. If your plugin has hooks, you may increase its capabilities without changing its fundamental design. These hooks are not affected by plugin upgrades.
Implementing the above aforementioned best practices recommendations will help you prevent unneeded difficulties like data loss and incompatibilities while updating your plugins.January 18, 2023 at 1:20 pm #775GracelynParticipant
Can I update WordPress version without losing content?January 18, 2023 at 1:32 pm #780Mark JaquithParticipant
You can update your WordPress website without loss of data by taking a backup via Updrafts or the All in One WP Migration plugin before updating to the new version.
For updating the WordPress version you have to log in and go to the dashboard on your website then click on updates under dashboard settings. Again you will see the latest version of WordPress and you can update it to the newest version.
After updating you seems to any problems and errors that occurred on your website then you can restore the backup you took before.
