Very easy to use plugin! a straight way to update commercial themes

Works As Advertised, Got Warning
By , for WP 4.5.2

Testing on my local machine first in Varying Vagrant vagrants, I get a warning on plugin activation

the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; ETUModifyInstaller has a deprecated constructor in /srv/www/wordpress-default/wp-content/plugins/easy-theme-and-plugin-upgrades/modify-installer.php on line 5

Might be a local issue, about to test on server site.

It works!

It's an amazing plugin and has allowed me to ship updates of my commercial theme easily. I tried to find a way to donate to this plugin but there isn't one.

Keep the amazing work up. :)

I occasionally see that some people have had challenges in using this plugin. While I have probably used it on more than 200 websites, running approximately 20 to 100+ plugins sometimes on each site, and many various themes including Studio Press, iThemes, Elegant Themes, WordPress Free Themes, ThemeForest Themes, etc., I (at least for my use) need to let people know that it's absolutely never failed me and never caused a problem.

If there was a problem with a plugin update, I evidently find that something's up with the plugin that I'm trying to upgrade and 'not' this Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrade plugin.

While I can't say that no one else will ever have a problem, I just wanted to share my experience with anyone who wants to be able to easily update plugins and themes (when you want or need to upload a newer version through the WordPress dashboard).

As a word of precaution - and as a reminder, before you perform any update or change to your website, just be sure you have a solid and recent backup. This will help to protect you against any possible hiccups that can occur for any number of different reasons.
