The short answer is, YES, it's OK to run updates! Whether it is a WordPress update, a SNO FLEX update or a plugin update, updates help keep your site running at the top of its game. We always recommend updating WordPress, SNO FLEX, and plugins as soon as updates are available. You will know updates are available when a banner that says as much is displayed at the top of your site's dashboard. You also know when update are available when there is a number in the Updates tab on the side bar of your Dashboard.
WordPress is an open-source publishing platform that is continuously being updated and enhanced by its publishers. WordPress updates are released about every 1 to 3 months. Whenever a new WordPress version is released, many WordPress plugin developers update their plugins to take advantage of the latest WordPress features or to resolve conflicts that arise because of the changes WordPress made. We always test the beta versions of WordPress and make sure that our themes and plugins are compatible with the most recent versions of WordPress so that you can update on the first day that updates are available. The updating process is simple and painless. Just click the link in the notice bar at the top of your WordPress admin screen and you’ll be walked through the upgrade process. You don’t need to worry about making a backup of your database, as our servers do this for you automatically.
