WordPress have also launched the Twenty Twenty-Two theme, which brings a whole array of flexible options for designers, where the new site editor tool can be used to select typography and fonts can be applied on all your pages.

With over 70 million users WordPress is the most popular Content Management platform in the world; when you keep WordPress updated, it’s also among the most secure. However, if you neglect the updates, WordPress websites can be at risk from attacks, vulnerabilities and inconveniences.
We and our customers love WordPress for the easy-to-navigate set-up and the ability to integrate blogs, social media, and loads of other features with relative ease.One advantage of WordPress is that it is constantly evolving; multiple times each year there are releases to enhance functionality & features but most important updates to the core security– the latest being WordPress 5.9. The security updates protect your data, your website content, and the website itself. WordPress updates are very important if you want to make sure the functions of the site are optimised and the site is as safe as possible.
Regular WordPress updates are vital for three main reasons:
