Wapuu Dashboard Pet

Description

Wapuu Dashboard Pet is a virtual pet for your WordPress admin dashboard. The more you fail to update your site, the sicker Wapuu becomes. Keep WordPress Core, plugins and themes up to date to keep them happy.

Wapuu Dashboard Pet works by counting the number of updates available on your site. The more there are, the more unhappy they appear in the corner of the dashboard. Wapuu is a visual representation of the health of your site.

Installation

  1. Upload the “Wapuu Dashboard Pet” folder to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress.

FAQ

How often will Wapuu email me?

Once weekly if enabled.

How do I prevent email notifications

Clear your email from the options page and save settings.

Will Wapuu die if I don’t update my site?

Wapuu will not die, he will be eternally sad if updates are not done, but you wouldn’t let that happen, right?

Reviews

Cute health check plugin

Hey Kayleigh, love the discrete Plugin you created with 34sp which will help myself and clients keep their websites updated. Thanks, Simon Belt.

Simple but effective

Love Wapuu! This is a simple but effective way to get an overview of site health and also get email notified about it. Excellent use of our favorite mascot. Now if he would just float a little higher up on the page ...

Cute little plugin

This is a great little plugin that works as advertised. I hope it will inspire more people to keep their WordPress sites up to date!
