The importance of keeping your CMS up to date

Using a Content Management System (CMS) gives you the chance to manage your own website.

Using a Content Management System (CMS) like Joomla, Silverstripe or Wordpress gives you the chance to build and manage your own website without having technical or programming knowledge.  It has proven to be a very popular and convenient way to create websites and millions of people are now using one of the various CMS programs available.  However, many website owners are either not aware they need to upgrade or simply forget to upgrade their CMS version.  If the version of your CMS is not kept up to date constantly, your website is exposed to security exploits and is an easy target for hackers.  

With every version upgrade of a CMS the software developers are patching up security flaws, fixing bugs and introducing new features, so there are many different benefits for your website.
