Control WordPress Automatic Background Updates directly from within iControlWP

By 25th November 2013 January 22nd, 2016 iControlWP: Manage WordPress Better, WordPress News and Updates

WordPressLast week we told you we were working on an interface to control automatic WordPress background updates directly from within iControlWP.

Today that new feature has arrived and it’s easy to get started and it’ll take about 1 minute to see how to use it 🙂

How to get started with automatic WordPress Background updates

Please note: WordPress version 3.7.1 is the minimum required version for this feature.

We’ve made it super-easy to kick off automatic updates – you simply need to select the plugins you wish to have WordPress automatically update.

To do this, each plugin entry on your site listing will have an automatic update slider and you just click the slider to enable the feature.

See image below:

The simple slider system makes it obvious which plugins are set to automatically update and which aren’t.

Suggestions on improvements

Automatic WordPress updates are a great step forward in streamlining the WordPress management workflow, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution.

You must take care on which plugins and themes you enable this feature and make sure you have reliable WordPress backups on-hand to help out if things go wrong.

If you have any suggestions and ideas on how we can improve this tool for you, please let us know.
