The WordPress Core code is updated pretty regularly throughout the year. Everyone wants to upgrade to the latest version of the WordPress as it is stable. We all want the latest features and also immunity from the security holes of the older versions. Yet, even after such extensive research, all the bugs cannot be fixed at once.
This is where the problem arrives. Those bugs which left behind while fixing can really cause a lot of trouble. Also, there are plugins and themes which don’t act nicely in an update. The core developer of plugin and themes need some time to catch up with an update of WordPress. So, till that time, things can go weird.
You’re probably thinking that you are running a secure and safe WordPress website. The short story – you’re not!
We’re living with the status-quo that our websites are secure enough to not bother with the dirty job of hardening them as best as we can. But the reality is different. While supporting my customers, I personally face every day with shared web hosting servers, outdated(sometimes, ancient) technologies; people are still using the “admin” username, they don’t have a security plugin installed, even if it takes less than 5 minutes.
It’s not your fault. We assume that WordPress is pretty safe to run a website on it. And it is, but threads are everywhere and it’s best to avoid them if possible. And it is possible.
Optimizing images for web is still a little-known practice. When it comes to websites and images, things can get a little complicated. You see, while images are something which all websites simply must have, for many reasons, they increase the overall size of a web page and thus slow down the loading speed of that web page. Above all, this is very problematic because of the user experience that this conveys.
It`s that time of the year again!

It seems like yesterday that we were all listening to long, drawn out tones as our dial-up internet connected. Fast forward to now, and speed is everything.

We all know how powerful and versatile WordPress can be. After all, it`s a content management system, with more than 10 years of continuous updates and features implemented and millions of people behind it.
Starting as a blogging platform, WordPress slowly but certainly turned into a veritable CMS over the years.

However, there has been a great debate between the responsive and adaptive layouts, so how should designers, and clients, differentiate these methods and apply them for a website template?
