Got a WordPress management question (assuming there are WordPress experts here in this group): I know it's a good idea to delete the default themes and unused themes once you've chosen to use one, and it's a good idea to remove unused plugins (the Godaddy attack of 2009 or 2010 was an exploit from unused plugins)

All wp installs come with Hello Dolly and wp jetpack

is there any reason to keep either of those?


What function does Hello Dolly contribute to a small business website?

If we use the Yoast SEO plugin (I prefer it to AllInOne SEO) what functions does the wp jetpack offer that Yoast's SEO doesn't do better?

There is no need to keep either of those. BTW Jetpack is NOT part of standard Wordpress but is written by the Wordpress team.

I don't use Yoast but use Allinone, Jetpack adds lots of extras other than SEO and if you only want SEO then my advice would be to go with Yoast if you don't need the functionality that Jetpack provides.

it is always a good idea to keep the default theme in a WP install. In the event of a custom theme going wrong, WP will automatically try to restore to default theme.

Don't have lots of extra themes that aren't used. But default & 1 custom theme ( that is in use) is sensible

jetpack does have some uses, but that is your choice. The majority of exploits to WP come from badly implemented plug ins or vulnerabilities in custom themes
