How to keep your WordPress plugins and themes updated
This page shows how to manually update a plugin or theme once it has been download from our site.
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.
2. Download the New Version of Your Plugin or Theme
Login to your account area and now you’re ready to download the latest version of your plugin or theme.
You can check the changelog to see what files have been updated.
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.
