Squidix gets some coverage from Website Planet. See what is going on in the industry here.
In the last year we’ve seen what we like to call “plugin creep.” This occurs when a user has WordPress, Joomla, or any CMS and they don’t maintain their plugins, and continually add to their website new plugins, extensions, modules. Eventually the site will have problems.
For example, a website may have several contact forms, a cache module, a sign up script, SEO plugin, a sitemap generator, and more. What happens is that eventually one or more of these will be incompatible with the website, and it will cause the site to perform poorly, crash, or invite malware.
This issue can be caused by a plugin that is outdated, or a plugin that was updated but is now incompatible with the site. So unless you are keeping track you’re going to have a bad time.
Every single plugin must be regularly updated and maintained and so should the core CMS software.
But, who has time for that?
