As many WordPress & Joomla users realize, a new revision / upgrade seems to come out very frequently.
What I'm trying to figure out is how more advanced web designers usually handle this issue.
1) It's great to have the newest version
2) But only if all of the plugins are compatible with the new version
Since plugins seem to grow obsolete or out-dated, or even fall off the web all together I am wondering if most people just try to use as much foresight as possible when designing their websites - installing every perceived plugin they anticipate using until their next major re-design, or if people just keep upgrading constantly?
I have had to redesigned a website for a client recently, and wish there was a better solution than the typical 'complete' redesign occasionally.
Any thoughts? Would greatly appreciate your feedback.
