  1. Hi Katrinah, thank you for the reply. no nextgen piugin. The website could not be open at all, I uninstall the theme (ifeature) and it is ok now, but could not update the WP version, some of the plugin I installed are missing from the list, and it do not allow me to install agian (contact form 7). All I can do now is wait for the next WP update version to see if I can update. Anyway,. Thank you once again,

    Hello Katrina,, thanks for this great compilation of plugins! I have a question regarding security: What about plugins which haven’t been updated for a long time, say >6 months (=plugins that are not compatible with the current version of WP)? I’m asking because there are, for example, those very important security plugins (one that you’ve mentioned) that avoid numerous login attempts, "Limit Login Attempts" and "Login Lockdown". Those plugins have not been updated for a very long time, but youtubers still recommend the plugins. 
    1) Is this not a security risk? How dangerous is it in general, if developers do not update plugins and does the necessity of an update depend on the plugin itself?
    2) How can I as a beginner know, whether a plugin (even if it has more than 50.000 downloads) is safe? Is there any simple way to find out?

    Thanks Katrinah,

    What do you see as the first 2 or 3 changes I should make to this site I don’t know what I am doing with?

    I need to change the background collage thing, and the header. I also just updated the newest edition and all of a sudden I don’t see anywhere where I can put in the thumbnail photo for my article preview on the main page. That’s why I hate getting current versions because they change stuff SO DRAMATICALLY. I should have stayed with my old version….   but the video plug ins kept crashing when using Firefox.
