How Do I Efficiently Find Out Which Activated Plug-ins Need Updates?


Hopps Team

Hi, welcome to Hopps help where we answer questions in two minutes. Today's question is how do I efficiently find out which activated plugins need updates? Okay. So, there's actually a couple of things I want to discuss on this. If we go to dashboard updates, we'll actually see a list of plugins and themes that need updates. But everything right now for me is up to date. I can reinstall a version of WordPress or whatnot. Now the only thing that I want to, and that's how you do it. And there's actually, an icon that will appear up here. If there are updates and it'll have a little bubble with a number of updates inside of it on the left. Now, if you don't want to sit there and babysit every single yeah, you don't want to sit there and babysit the site does make sure you're always up to date and everything like that. Come in and check it out and update everything. And you know what? And so I just go ahead and autopilot it. This site is automatically kept up to date with each new version of WordPress. You can switch to automatic updates for maintenance and security, recent releases only. So instead of getting WordPress 6.0 or something, you'll get up to our old, let's say there's a five-point 10 or whatever is the last one. I don't know, but you'll get, you'll get security and maintenance releases only instead of the sure releases such as WordPress six or whatever when it comes out. Okay. So, we can switch that. We're going to switch it back, enable automatic updates for all new WordPress, WordPress updates. Now those aren't plugins, but if we go to plugins here, we can switch on enable auto-updates per plugin. So, if you don't, if you have one that you don't want to update, then don't click it. So, enable auto-updates for kismet and notice that it changed to disabled instead of enabling. So, I can click it again and it enables cook it again as disabled. So disabled auto-updates, that one is now enabled and that one is disabled. So, if I refresh the screen, you'll see that this one's still disabled. This one's enabled, and now that's going to happen automatically. You don't have to monitor it, monitor it anymore. If you need one-on-one assistance from a WordPress expert, hop on today.
