I don't have any problem with my current wp version and run Weaver II theme.
I don't want to update because I don't really understand what goes on under the hood, so if something went wrong, or didn't work properly after the update, I wouldn't know how to fix it.
My host is Hostgator, and they always say they won't help with any wp problems because that's outside what they are supposed to provide support for..... so I'd be really %^*())*)(^.
Q1. How important is it to keep updating?
Q2. I know I have to backup first, but how risky is it to update?
Thanks in advance,
