The easiest way to describe a WordPress website is that it is made up from components. All of these components come from different developers, most of which are very large companies with a staff that has many educated and talented people working to make a final component that ultimately goes into a website. It's like an automobile, you have the car body (the site template), then you have the parts/components (plugins, widgets) that all come together to make the final working product. If a component fails, the car stops working, just as if a plugin fails the website stops working. The main difference is; that in the case of a website, the body and the components are constantly being updated (weekly-monthly). This is why it is so important to have a website administrator that monitors your site and keeps it all up to date, it's what we do.
