Backing up the site
The site is backed up using the UpdraftPlus plugin.
NB, do not update WordPress, the theme or the plugins provided by the theme till the Laborator have made an update available.
Generally, updates take place in a cycle. WordPress will release an update, then the plugins and themes will update their code to suit – releasing their updates a few days later. The theme is usually the last to come in, because it has to wait on the plugins it deploys.
Even then you can afford to sit on it, because WordPress usually has a smaller ‘correction’ after that. Even if the little red buttons are bothering you, it pays to wait it out.
