Read on to learn more about the iControlWP Plugin Manager …
What is the iControlWP WordPress Plugin Manager?
To manage your sites, typically you do the same task, at the same time, across all your sites.
Without a tool like iControlWP, you must jump between each site, repeating the same task. That’s a bit of a pain. iControlWP removes the need for this – you can review with an overview and manage each one in turn.
Consider the scenario where a new plugin is released, that’s currently installed on most of your sites. But.. you want to selectively update this plugin on only a subset of your WordPress sites.
There are a couple of ways to achieve this, but most convenient is the dedicated Plugin Manager. It offers a clear view of all plugins with updates available on all your sites.
You can select a collection of plugins, or just focus on the 1. You then have the following options. You can:
- update one plugin on one site
- update one particular plugin on all/selected sites
- update all/selected plugins on one particular site
- update all/selected plugins on all/selected sites
If you really need bulk update – that is, update a plugin on all sites, the Overview is good for this. If you want to pick and choose, use the Plugin Manager.
