Works Great
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is a solution I'd recommend to the non-coder. I'd still like WordPress to consider adding these settings for users to disable since they did add it to core.

IF that never happens, well, at least this plugin exists. :)

great for hands-off management

Allows auto-updates for major versions, and has more options than I ever needed. Great work!

great to have these options
By , for WP 3.7.1

Great plugin and many thanks for integrating email sending into it!

One thing I would like to recommend is to add its own settings page instead of adding it to the general settings. And even if that is not an option than at least make it clear to the user where to find the settings, for example with a link to the settings on the main plugins page.

A life saver
By , for WP 3.7

I can't recommend plugin this high enough! If you manage a lot of WordPress sites then you will need this.

Personally, I think this should have a been a core feature of WordPress as by switching the auto up date off you can manage/back up your database/theme/files etc... then do the one click update as you normally would.

As I run a lot WordPress, it gives me piece of mind as I would not want an auto updated problem to bork a site over the hoiday period or the weekend.

Great! Saves time and coding
By , for WP 3.7

Instead of coding in the wp-config.php after spending time with the documentation of the several auto-update options this plugin offers nice time-saving settings including notifications via email.
