Support » Plugin: Plugin Notes Plus » Not in the list to Auto Update with WP Time Capsule Pro

  • Resolved nineplanetsllc


    There’s nothing wrong with the plugin functionality, but I wanted to make you aware of the interaction with WP Time Capsule.

    We use their plugin to selectively auto-update back-end plugins (it backs up first and then updates) that don’t affect the look/functionality of the front end of a website. This plugin is a candidate for auto-updates but for some reason it doesn’t show up on the list of plugins you can update. So far every other plugin from the repository has shown up so I just wanted to give you a heads up.

    Not a big deal and maybe this isn’t on your end but I wanted to let you know in case it provides a clue for something else later on.

    Interesting. Thanks for pointing this out! I took a look at WP Time Capsule, and I didn’t see anything obvious about why my plugin wouldn’t appear on their auto-update list. So I went ahead and submitted a support request (copied below). I’ll report back when I hear from them.

    Thanks again!

    Question about plugins on auto-update list

    I’m the author of a plugin in the plugin repo (, and one of my users informed me that my plugin doesn’t appear on the list of plugins that can be updated automatically in WP Time Capsule. Is there something that I can do to make my plugin eligible for auto-updates? It doesn’t affect the functionality or appearance on the front end of sites, so I believe that it would be a good candidate.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Just wanted to follow up. I never heard back on my support request from WP Time Capsule. (See the message I submitted a week ago in the previous comment.)

    I looked at a couple of other plugins that allow selective auto-updates of plugins: Jetpack ( and Automatic Plugin Updates ( Based on my testing, both of those plugins include Plugin Notes Plus on their list of plugins available for auto-update. So I’m guessing that it’s a quirk with how WP Time Capsule works and not something I can affect from within my plugin. I’m going to mark this as resolved, but I’ll post back if I do end up hearing from WP Time Capsule support.
