Support » Plugin: Easy Updates Manager » randomly deactivates plugins

  • This looks great, nice interface, but unfortunately it does have a habit of disabling random plugins on update. Yoast SEO, structured data, and many more have all been deactivated randomly when using this Tested across multiple sites, does hte same thing for nearly all of them.

    Please do post in the support forum if you’re having trouble, so that someone can give you advice: .

    This plugin has no code to de-activate or activate plugins, or even, to update them. That’s not how it, or WordPress updates, work. This plugin’s role in updates is only to answer “yes” or “no” when WordPress core says “there’s an update available, shall I run it?”. If the actual automatic updates themselves aren’t done properly, 100% of that code is in WordPress core. If you’re able to update your review that would be much appreciate.

    I’m sure David, but an update via easy updates does indeed appear to deactivate plugins. Whether directly or via a conflict with another plugin. I’ve watched as it happens via the force updates button. I’ve used it recently on several sites, and have only noticed the random disabling of plugins since this.

    I have since replaced the plugin with another on certain sites, so i’ll see what happens. If the ones without the plugin work fine, and the others with the plugin continue to get disabled, i’ll let you know.
