Very useful plugin. I'm using it on 3 business websites and it is the best solution at updating wordpress, themes and plugins.

Works good - make sure some other plugin not blocking notifications
By , for WP 3.8

I originally rated this 1-star since I never got notifications, but when I was moving my site to a new host, I discovered that one of the security plugins was blocking new update notifications. After fixing that, this plugin works great!

(Plugin author - sorry for the initial bad review when it wasn't your plugin causing the issue.)

Works great, nice design, minor bugs

Ah crap - I typed it into the wrong window :( This isn't a review for this plugin, sorry about that!


ignore the rest of this review!


It mostly does what I need - though there are a few minor nits -

  1. When you go to a jobs page, it won't open up the General tab by default
  2. If email sending fails, because of reasons outside the plugin's control, it doesn't have a great way of letting you know - you sort of have to watch for the failures (non receipt of emails.)

Great, simple plugin!
By , for WP 3.6

I love this plugin cause it is simple and "set it and forget it"... I never understood why WordPress doesn't just implement something like this in the core. But this plugin does the trick, so no complaints!

Great plugin

Very useful to get a notification when your website is not updated so frequently or when waiting for the update of a plugin.

Works as expected - simple and useful.

Works as billed

This plugin does exactly what it states. It is reliable and a useful utility for anyone that manages multiple WordPress installations.

Made a simple thing, but does it well.
By , for WP 3.5.1

An extension in the spirit K.I.S.S. that I love.
I produced a French translation available on my website, and I'm donating to the community.
If the author integrates "officially" in the extension, I would maintain throughout the releases.

Very effective. Very useful.
By , for WP 3.5

The plugin sends and email notification that identifies which plugin needs to be updated, what version is currently installed, what version is available, and a link to .../wp-admin/update-core.php where the updating can proceed.

I installed this plugin about 6 weeks ago on a couple of my sites and have been very happy with it. Will now install it on all my WordPress sites.
