WordPress needs to be kept up to date—no ifs, ands or buts! Fortunately, the built-in WordPress Site Health Status panel helps you know what updates need to be made to your plugins, themes, security and functionality.
It’s color-coded: green, yellow and red, from good health to needs attention, code red!
If you don’t have someone doing updates for you, pay attention to this panel!
At the top of your WordPress dashboard, it says, Site Health Status. The ideal notification here: “Your site’s health is looking good.” From here, it will direct you to more details at the Site Health Screen, where you may see recommended improvements.
You can also find the Site Health section in Tools > Site Health.
How to keep your WordPress site healthy:
- Pay attention to your site health panel and make updates.
- Have someone else paying attention to your site health panel and making regular updates. If you’re a client, I offer a website maintenance package. This means your site will be taken care of, and you don’t even have to look.
Here’s to healthy WordPress sites. If I can help, let me know.
