I’m not too sure from your comment whether you’re using ClassicPress or still using WordPress but the beauty of ClassicPress is that no one needs to know anything about coding to be able to create great websites. @I am still using Wordpress.org with the Classic Plugin. No coding needed to create great websites? New to [email protected]
Regarding outdated themes, normally I would recommend updating to the latest version. However, sometimes it’s not feasible to update and this is generally OK. As long as there are no known vulnerabilities or bugs in the version you’re using, then you should be good to stick with that version. I use older versions of themes on several of my websites.

He also believed in Gutenberg and he told me that it is not hard to switch over
Many people do like working with the Gutenberg block editor and that’s perfectly fine. However, a lot of people have found it awkward and difficult / impossible to get used to. That’s why the Classic Editor plugin for WordPress still has 5+ million installs (WP stop counting at 5 million for some reason). @I use about 20 different plugins. How do I know that these will work with ClassicPress?@If you spend most of your time writing, then I would argue that Gutenberg has little to offer you and is even likely to create obstacles where none exist at present. @Writing articles, Genealogies, Special Indonesian recipes and many pictures, edited with Foo galleries? @
But it’s really all down to personal preference and that’s a decision that only you can make. Before making the switch, you might want to ask your webmaster if they can set up a test site so that you can try things out. @ He gave me many articles about Gutenberg @
Beside that my single site is under attack by hackers and Wordfence does protects me.
All websites come under attack unfortunately so I would try not to be too alarmed by what Wordfence is showing you. Wordfence is a great product and it does also work well on ClassicPress (with one or two small caveats) but there is an alternative called Shield Security which is fully CP compatible. Many of us here are using it. But good basic security such as reputable hosting, disable xml-rpc, strong passwords, regular backups, etc. is just as important.
@ Hostgator.com, - What is xml-rpc? Backup with backup buddy. I use the paid version of Wordfence. Shield Security is unknown to [email protected]
It’s difficult to know what else to advise. All I would say is that if you are currently using WP and you intend to carry on using WP, then at some point you will have no choice but to use the block editor. However, if you use CP, then that’s not something you ever need to be concerned with.
We’re always around to offer help and advice but only you can make the decision
@ How do I know that the plugins on CP will all work? And what about the fully outdated “Decore” which works on/with Genesis. Because of the warnings I have already disabled [email protected]
But thank you for all info and advices.
