Support » Plugin: Easy Updates Manager » Disable Updates link in admin top bar resets auto updates settings

    Hi,
    When I disabled the Updates link in the top menu bar (using the disable button in “Admin bar menu display” in the Advanced tab) I found the automatic updates, the automatic plugin updates and automatic theme updates settings in the General tab had been reset to “Default”. It also cleared the core notification email address field.
    I picked it up straight away and put the settings back the way they were, but it will probably catch others out.

  • I can confirm this. It also resets the General tab settings if you re-enable the updates menu again.

    I’m also starting to notice some potential issues with Themes set to select individually with themes set to off being set to Automatic on their own again. Latest version’s settings just seem unreliable now.

    Hi,

    Apologies for the delay. I have passed this on to our developers for investigation.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay!

    Can you please let us know the steps to reproduce the issue in detail?

    Issue #1:

    On the General tab, set Automatic Plugin Updates and Automatic Theme Updates to Select Individually. Set Core notification e-mails to Disable.

    Go to Advanced tab –> Admin bar menu display and Disable (It’s unneeded clutter in the admin bar)

    Go back to the General tab and you’ll find the options set above are no longer set. If you set them again and re-enable the admin bar menu it will also reset them again so it happens both ways… disabling/enabling it.

    Potential Issue #2:

    Due to Issue #1 I went through all my sites and made sure my general tab was set as above and made sure only WordPress provided “Year” themes were set to auto-update, while my active used theme were set to not auto-update because I prefer to be present when those update.

    This is where I’m unsure what the problem may be (if any) so, this is a guess you just might want to look at just in case. On some of the sites on the Themes tab, I used the checkbox to select all of the Themes and the Bulk Actions to set Automatic Updates Off and then turned back on the one I wanted automatically updated.

    A few days later, The7 Theme had a new update and some of my sites incorrectly automatically updated that use it but not all. This is why I suspect the Bulk Actions may have an issue since while I can’t remember each specific site I did that on, that would be the only difference between some sites I just turned off each theme one by one for automatic updates and some sites I did the Bulk Actions that had more installed theme files.

    and the further clarify #2. When I cam back a few days later for the sites that incorrectly auto updated the theme, the individual theme sets were set back to allowing automatic updates. So the the automatic updates that occurred did match the settings. They just weren’t the settings as I left them for the Themes tab.
