Remove Abandoned Plugins

What is it?

Abandoned plugins are plugins no longer supported by their original development team. This means that as WordPress and web standards change these plugins will not be fixed to meet these standards.

Why should you care?

Outdated & abandoned plugins are the number one cause of a hacked WordPress site. They are the easiest to exploit because they have not and will never be repaired for known vulnerabilities.

Removing abandoned plugins can be difficult as often they provide a key functionality or service on a website. When this is the case it is important to find a new plugin to replace these features.

Let us do the work!

We will:

  • Identify discontinued plugins and assess risks
  • Remove unused plugins
  • Find replacement plugins for features still in use
  • Install & configure new plugin
  • migrate any data, copy, media from original setup to new configuration
