Keeping your WordPress plugins and themes updated is as easy as 1, 2, 3 even when you download them from us. This tutorial will show you how it’s done.
1. Install Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades Plugin
The Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades Plugin by Chris Jean (the developer behind iThemes) provides a function that some would argue should be a default setting in WordPress because it fixes a limitation that won’t allow you to upload a plugin or a theme if it already exists.
3. Install the New Version
The process is the same for plugins and themes. Just upload them to the site as you would normally, the Easy Update plugin will handle the rest for you.
Updating your plugins and themes is now a simple task that takes seconds, not minutes.
We have an automatic updater plugin of our own in the pipeline which should make it even faster and more convenient. Watch this space!
Our update plugin has now been released! You can find it in your account area under ‘API Downloads’
