Reviews

Like Ronseal…

… does exactly what it says on the tin. Gives us great levels of control over updates and prevents automatic updates from breaking the site.

Harmonogram

Nie widzę możliwości ustawienia daty i godziny aktualizacji…
There is no option to set the time and date of updating…

An essential plugin for sure

In my opinion it is an absolute requirement to gain control of the whole updates situation in wordpress.
The old addage ” If its not broke dont fix it” really matters. Why would you spend a heck of a lot of time getting your wordpress to be Google friendly only to have your site broken by an inconsiderate update? This plugin is brilliant. Once your site is set up and is fast and efficient it allows you to forget updating forever. If your current plugins work well with your current wordpress then why change that? Easy Updates manager allows you to “freeze” your online masterpiece so that it cannot be broken by unexpected updates ever again! The only plugins I set to auto update are my security plugins. Thank you guys for a great plugin, one that should absolutely be a part of wordpress anyway!

Did what I wanted in 1 click!

We are running an older version of WordPress because our site is hosted on a legacy Windows 8 server and it requires Technical Support to install WordPress. So, I wanted to turn off all automatic updates – this let me do that with 1 click.
