Automatic Updates question

  • This is just a general “I’m curious” question – not support at all.

    Automatic Updates is awesome. I love it. It makes updating things *so* easy. But I was wondering – why it is for plugins only? Is there a reason that you can’t “auto-update” WordPress itself? I think that would be great.

  • I thought of that but I’m such a control freak that I want to do it myself, my way. My way is to kill the /wp-includes and /wp-admin folders completely, and wipe out all the *.php files at the WP root (except wp-config.php, my .htaccess and robots.txt files), and then upload fresh files. So I don’t think an auto upgrade would help in this instance. I’ve seen too many failed upgrades where files were simply overwritten.

    P.S. Hi, Shelly from the WDG. 😉

    Yeah, that’s true. (But it would still be cool LOL)
