I did a little behind the scenes WordPress maintenance on the Insight Actors Studio website as well as a comprehensive template update. If you’ve got a WordPress website, it’s extremely important to keep things up to date as security issues can pop up fairly easily.
Things you should stay on top of include:
- WordPress Core Updates
- Plugin Updates
- Theme Updates
- Server Updates such as the PHP version
Themes are usually the surprising issue for most businesses. All themes have PHP code that needs to be updated from time to time. In addition to the security issues, some functions are depreciated over time and cause your site to not function as intended. For Insight, their theme was no longer supported, so a new one was customized to match the look of the old theme.
I also took the time to fix some navigation issues, troubleshoot a contact form, and improve the appearance of the site on both desktop and mobile screens.
The result is in keeping with their design aesthetic and improving functionality.
