WP Remote is a free web app that enables you to easily manage all of your WordPress powered sites from one place.
With 20+ WordPress sites to maintain, a central dashboard from which I can monitor and manage aspects like plugins, themes and backups is almost a necessity.
There are a handful of solutions out there, but this one was my plugin of choice as:
It also doesn't hurt that it's a UK-produced plugin (I'm also from the UK).
Keep up the great work guys.
WP Remote is deceptively simple. I started using it when it was new, and I thought I'd use it for simple sites on their free plan. Their pricing structure didn't make sense to me, and I figured I'd switch to one of the other seemingly "more robust" hosted or self-hosted alternatives. I've tried most of the alternatives, and the fact is they are way too "robust."
Most of the time you just want to know what has or hasn't been updated, and to run updates -- and that's it. Everything else is done better through WordPress itself and/or your high quality managed WordPress host. This is what WP Remote does -- monitor and run updates -- from a persistent browser tab you should keep pinned down and check frequently when work and email bores you. (WP Remote can also drop you some backups too -- and very nicely -- but this isn't something I've really needed to use.)
The whole shebang is FREE now, perhaps pending the hot new version that was heralded 8 months ago as just about ready for a beta release. No word on that yet, but I trust when it appears it will still be brutally simple, brutally efficient, and brutally awesome.
Huge time saver - I use it on all my sites.
Using on most of my sites. I didn't try to update WP core via WP Remote, but plugin updates didn't cause any issues.
Really impressed with this plugin! Great idea, great job, great site!
Thanks a lot for your work!
Big timesaver! Managing multiple WordPress websites with multiple hosts and multiple plugins can be a real hassle. This plugin makes it easy as pie. Thanks Human Made!
A great idea brilliantly executed. Easy to set up and use, great interface. One of the best WordPress-related services around.
Next to handling your updates WP Remote gives you a good insight to the sites you are maintaining or working on. Hassle free and with a helpful friendly team behind it. Thanks guys!
Only just tried this plugin after seeing a few good reviews, but within hours I had bought the premium version. Makes maintaining and backing up a small or even a large number of separate sites a doddle. And this wonderful plugin has been created here in the UK, in the Derbyshire dales... I'm just a little surprised that it's not been downloaded by more people.
