In this era of information overload where our attention is being demanded from an almost infinite number of sources, we simply don’t have the patience to hang around a wait for a slow website to load. If you’re website is slow you’re losing sales, leads and generally annoying your users. Even if you’re not selling directly online, a slow website reflects really poorly on your business reputation.

Most ThemeForest theme authors will typically use the TGM plugin activation class (TGMPA class) to make it reasonably straightforward to install these plugins upon first use. The TGMPA class also makes it straightforward for theme authors to provide plugin updates via their theme updates.
Yet despite this, thousands of WordPress websites are not running the latest versions of commercial plugins bundled via ThemeForest themes. This is a pretty big problem as all it takes is one major security vulnerability in one of these plugins (like that which happened with Slider Revolution a couple of years ago) and we immediately have thousands of exposed WordPress websites that can’t be easily fixed.
