Is it okay to skip the WordPress core update & still update my Plugins?
I'm waiting to update WordPress core to version 5 (now 5.1) due to stability concerns. I'm finding WordPress 5 series with Gutenberg is causing many plugins to require updates, presumably in line with WordPress core.
The question I have is - if I do not update WordPress, is it still sensible to update plugins to the latest versions or could there be problems?
Our gut tells us to wait to do the big WordPress core update until mid-January thinking that maybe the majority of bug fixes will be done by then if we're lucky.
