Support » Plugin: WP Updates Notifier » Abandoned?

  • Looking at this support forum it looks like this plugin is abandoned. Is it? Is there an alternative?

  • at the moment it still works but security plugins suggest to replace the plugin. i’m also looking for an alternative!

    Did anyone find a maintained alternative they are happy with? I am looking as well and will post if I find anything.

    switched to the all in one soulution from wordfence. this also include a notification about updates

    Yes – it appears to be abandoned, unfortunately. It doesn’t work any more with most of my sites. I’ve been using Mail on Update – which works on most sites. It hasn’t been updated in a year now so I don’t know if it will be updated eventually or abandoned too. Wordfence, while good, is a lot more than a plugin update notifier! If you opt to use it, disable Live Traffic Logging, or you may find your site slows down considerably.

    @paddy-duncan switched from ithemes security to wordfence so with the switch to wordfence i have (with the notifier) 2 functions in one plugin. live traffic is already deactivated on all sites. but thanks for the reminder.



    Please help me to move abandoned Forum to any new one. Why I never got any notifications about the issue till I push SSL to add to my site and the forum content not works???



    Content saved.

    Companion Auto Updater is a handy alternative. You can set it to email you when an update is available if you don’t want your plugins to auto-update. I have it email me for some of the more “breakable” plugins and just go ahead auto-update the simpler ones.

    I’m considering forking this and resurrecting it. Does anyone have the original authors contact details?
