Adds extra options to WordPress' built-in Automatic Updates feature.
Saves so much time and effort - highly recommended!
This excellent plugin, with the bare minimum of options, will save me a lot of time. Just works.
I host a site which is no longer actively maintained, but for which I still want the active functionality of WordPress for. Since I am not babysitting the site anymore, having to deal with updates is a real hassle, but a necessary one due to security concerns. Well, it's not a hassle anymore. Thanks to Automatic Updater, my site is not happily maintaining itself, updating plugins, and, most recently, WordPress itself without hitch. Great work.
This is exactly what we need! Amazing. Thank you.
This saves me so much time and trouble, I don't want a site without it.
I came here to find out why Automatic Updater wasn't updating plugins, and the review TLCJohn wrote is exactly what my issue was! Changing settings in all my WP blogs within Better WP Security fixed everything. Love this plugin and would hate to see it disappear!!!
Hi there Guys,
Today, 6th June 2013, I had a problem with Automatic Updater. We have built a number of website using WordPress. Over the last few days however I have noticed that Automatic Updater has not been updating the plugins on the websites. So I have had to go in and manually do the updates. I decided to e-mail the developer, Gary Pendergast and ask if he had any ideas as to what the problem could be. I gave him a list of the most common plugin we use on the site. Now, this is why I am recommend this plugin - Gary came back quickly considering the time difference between Southampton, UK and Melbourne, Australia, he gave me a solution which has worked perfectly. The problem we were experiencing was a small setting which needed to be changed in Better WP Security. Below I have included his instructions in case anyone else has the same problem. I would just like it on record that Gary has been very helpful and he has an excellent plugin in Automatic Updater.
To get Automatic Updater working again, in your wp-admin, go to Security -> System Tweaks, scroll down to "Dashboard Tweaks", then make sure the "Hide Update Notifications" options are unchecked.
All the very best to everyone.
This is the plugin I was waiting for, which automate WordPress update and plugin update...I strongly feel WordPress should consider such functionality to their core WordPress Files as this is very important from security point of view :)
This plugin works very well. I have it installed on all my sites, and I recommend it heartily for all to use.
Great plugin, now using on personal sites, friends and clients to make sure they keep their sites up-to-date and more secure!
