Support » Plugin: Update Control » How long does auto update take?

  • Hi,
    Love this plugin for its simplicity but just want to make sure it supports my version of WP.

    The plugin lists up to 4.5.4 (I am running 4.6.1), and on a site I enabled Major updates, theme updates and plugin about about 5 hours ago, and 2 updates were due.

    When I logged in this morning, the same updates were still pending.

    How often do the updates occur? Do I first need to carry out and updates that were available before I installed and then it all handles all future ones? Thanks!

    When updates occur is up to WordPress. The plugin simply sets the filters that allow WordPress to perform them. When they actually happen depends on some other, internal settings/functions of WordPress that the Plugin doesn’t affect. If you see updates available that don’t get processed in a day or two, then there might be an issue.

    Thanks for using the Plugin!

    Hi Chip

    Thanks for the quick reply! I just wanted to reach out again because on one site I had only one plugin update (mailchimp from 2.3 to 4.x) and everything else is the same.

    Do plugin updates run individually like this or is there something else going on?
