Easy Updating of WordPress

    Guys, it has to be a no-brainer. One click from within the wordpress installation, or running a script or something like that. At the moment it is so hard to keep all my wordpress installs up to date.

    But updating is so easy.

    updating is easy for ONE website. If you have many (I have four) it is still easy but takes forever.

    Another vote for the one-click upgrade.

    It's easy if all the permissions are right and your webhost has all the right backend bits to allow WP to run out, check the latest version, download it if it's newer, extract it and run the update. Not all webhosts are setup quite so perfectly.

    This is the single most important issue for someone like me, who has over 40 blogs, spread out on two different webhost servers each with many different configurations (in root, or in a subfolder with different names).

    Not to mention, that they might not have standardized plugins installed. Any one-click upgrade should probably scroll through the active plugins first and see if indeed you have the latest plugin installed, or force you to upgrade that first.

    This idea is a positive one. Thats why some people use Firefox. One-click updates is the way to move forward.

    I customize WordPress files so much that I hate updating because it means I have to go back and try to remember everything I changed and then try to repeat it with the new files. I would LOVE and automatic update feature that monitors those changes and keeps them intact for me.

    I like this idea... although initially the wp-devs could focus on an "automatic plugin updater" - for plugins that are available via the WordPress Plugin Repository.

    Some hosting services provide this, but if WordPress installs are scattered over multiple client accounts, it's still confusing and difficult to delegate to the client who's used to seeing all the info they need from within the WordPress environment.
