Unterstützt ihr auch ältere WordPress-Versionen?

Version 6.x.x sollte die WordPress-Versionen 4.0 und höher, Version 4.7.0 die WordPress-Versionen 2.3 bis 4.0 unterstützen.

Da WordPress einen konstanten Wechsel unterliegt, ist unser Ziel, mit dem Plugin die aktuellste Version von WordPress zu unterstützen. Da laufend neue Sicherheitslücken bekannt werden, solltest du WordPress so aktuell wie möglich halten.

Bedauerlicherweise können wir keine älteren WordPress-Versionen oder eine inaktuelle Fassung dieses Plugins unterstützen.

Wie ändere ich die E-Mail-Adresse für Benachrichtigungen über WordPress-Aktualisierungen?

Go to the General tab in our settings. You can enter a single email address, or multiple if you comma-separate them.

Does Easy Updates Manager work with third-party plugins and themes?

You really need this if you don't want updates to mess up your website. Disable automatic updates, backup website, update website. If something goes wrong restore website.

Works very well managing updates and also stops annoying messages from plugins wanting you to upgrade to their pro versions.

Apparently, support for this plugin has ceased. I've used it for several years and never had a day of trouble with it. Then in just the last two days, it has stopped working on any of my 6 sites spread over 3 servers and two web hosting companies. ALL sites now have plugins that have gone without updates for more than 2 days. Also, looking around at the developer's github, the last major activity seems to have been from 2 years ago. It also hasn't been updated in the last 2 months, when I think it used to be updated more often than that. Sad, but understandable. I really wish these app developers could charge us all like $2 a year. That would be great money for them (they have over 200,000 downloads) and it would make it so they could do this as a sustainable business. Looks like it's time to find a new one.
