I am a site owner, not a developer. I must hire others to do backend work on my site and the person I use is very skilled.
With every update thus far, a number of plug-ins break or lose some functionality. So I pay to have things troubleshooted. Still, a number of plug-ins have only partially function, or I abandon use of them.
I'm not complaining about having to pay someone to do work. But since Panda, income at my site has dropped more than 50%. So monies are limited for paying for hours of work trying to fix an elusive problem.
Must I update every time a WP update comes out?
I'm currently using WordPress 3.1.3. For version 3.2.1, compatibility for nine out of 10 plug-ins is "unknown."
Thank you in advance for any words of wisdom.
