Plugin Update Notifier Indicator Stops Working (3 posts)

    I'm using WP 2.7 and earlier today WordPress indicated that six of my plugins had updates waiting. Excellent!

    So I went into the Plugins area to upgrade, and selected the first one I saw to upgrade automatically. It upgraded successfully but then I noticed none of my other plugins were indicating that upgrades were available. It's almost as if it's stopped checking.

    In this case the one I upgraded was WP-Email (2.31 to 2.4). I know for a fact that WP-Print has an upgrade waiting (2.31 installed, 2.4 just released today). So I know at the very least it should be indicating that needs to be upgraded.

    Obviously I can upgrade them manually myself, but now that we have the auto-update option for plugins in WordPress it sure is handy and I'd hate to do without!! :)

    Suggestions? Help?

    After a couple days it started working again...this time showing that five upgrades were waiting, as I knew from the last time. I verified that there were five waiting. I installed one and then it no longer showed any of them as having an update waiting.

    Then a day after it stopped working it started again, although once again stopped working after I installed one of them.

    Yup, I've got exactly the same problem on one of my blogs. I thought it was some plugin conflict at first but I can't track it down. I've been using the One Click Plugin Updater Plugin which at least lets you set the update checking interval to a short period (eg 5 mins) so you can see what's happening.

    There seem to be other events (de-/re-activating a plugin?) that clear the update notifications as well.
