I’m a little confused this morning: I am an admin of many WordPress-based websites, and while going in and doing some site maintenance on several of them this morning, I see that their versions are out of date. One of them is on 3.9, another is on 3.9.2, another is 4.0, another is on 4.1, and so on.
In the past, I have been used to seeing the ‘nag’ at the top of the screen that lets me know there’s a newer version available. I am not seeing that on any of these sites which aren’t on the newest version (4.1.1). When I go to Dashboard > Updates and click “Check Again” to force a manual check, it still is acting as though everything is up to date (when it clearly is not).
On one site, I installed a plugin called “WP Updates Notifier”. I ran it on one of the sites and it sent me an e-mail with the following:
There are updates available for your WordPress site:
WP-Core: WordPress is out of date. Please update from version 3.9 to 4.1.1
Please visit http://redactedsite.com/wp-admin/update-core.php to update.
I followed the link…which took me to the WP Updates page, which said nothing about the update. (Again, acted like it’s up to date, even though it’s clearly not.) :\
I really appreciate the ease of having WordPress give me the option to upgrade, and clicking one line and letting it update itself. I manage 30+ WP websites, and I’d rather not go through and manually update each and every one’s core files.
Does anybody have some ideas on why this would be happening? And how I can get it to recognize it’s out-of-date and offer me the upgrade link again?
