Easy Updates Manager looks great. Suggestion:
It would be great if there was an option to set a delay by number of days before automatic updates kick in. For example, 5 days. Why?…
Because every now and then a plugin developer’s or theme developer’s update is bad and causes problems (in some cases extreme problems like site crashes, which even happened a while back with Yoast SEO – an otherwise excellent and stable plugin).
However, when this happens the developer usually hears about it quickly from their users and shortly thereafter has another update that corrects the prior update’s issues.
As a general habit (and what I generally believe to be a ‘best practice’), whenever I check for plugin/theme updates I never update anything that just came out in the past 5 days. This ensures that I won’t get a ‘bad’ update and allows enough time for the developer to receive feedback on the bad update from users and come out with a newer update that resolves the problem.
So, being able to set a delay of say 5 days, 7 days, or whatever would resolve this potential problem.
Thanks for your consideration and would appreciate any feedback on this idea!
