From time to time, a new version of WordPress or your favorite plugin is released. When either a plugin or WordPress is released, WordPress makes it easy to upgrade with one click. However, what should you do if you have a WordPress update and plugin updates pending? Which should you update first?
Update WordPress First
Updating WordPress brings in new bug and security fixes to your site. Occasionally, brand new features are added to WordPress that programers can use in their plugins. If a programer releases an update for their plugin that uses a new WordPress feature, but you’re running an old version of WordPress, you might experience some problems. Therefore, update WordPress first, then update your plugins.
