This is crazy. I’m not talking about managed sites here. BlueHost decided on their own to implement auto-updating of WordPress for all their shared hosting accounts using WordPress. And not just minor/security releases. I just discovered four sites I manage were updated to WordPress 4.3 without my knowledge or approval. I had good reasons for not doing the update yet. And then the BlueHost tech support rep confirmed my suspicion.
If you agree that BlueHost should stay out of the business of updating Web-site software, please retweet my tweet.

The nSiteful Tech Blog (the official blog of nSiteful Web Builders, Inc. since January of 2013) is where I (Jeff Cohan) and (occasionally) associates will be posting articles of potential interest to like-minded techies, nSiteful clients who are playing active roles in the maintenance of their own Web sites and blogs, and pretty much anyone interested in how Web strategies and tools can help them reach their goals.
