Auto-opdaterings scenarie

Først og fremmest laver vi et Auto Update Scenarie , som bestemmer politikken for automatiske WordPress-opdateringer.

Du kan vælge mellem følgende, fem automatiske opdateringer af WordPress Core.

  • Minor Version Update
  • Større opdateringsversion
  • Kun mindre versionsopdateringer
  • Tidligere generations opdateringsversion
  • Manuel opdatering

Minor Version Update

Minor Version Update enable minor updates. Minor updates is default behavior in WordPress for security updates. The transition of the version number is as follows: update from 4.8 to 4.8.1, 4.8.2 …

Større opdateringsversion

Større opdateringsversion aktivere store opdateringer. Overgangen til versionsnummeret er som følger: opdatering fra 4.7 to 4.8, 4.9 …

Kun mindre versionsopdateringer

Kun mindre versionsopdateringer enable major updates and minor updates except version x.y.0. It make sense to take a “skip” approach to avoid introducing new vulnerabilities into the latest major version release.

Opdater WordPress Core versionen (fx.. X.y.1 eller senere) hvor sikkerheden er løst. Opdater ikke automatisk den seneste større version af x.y.0. Overgangen til versionsnummeret er som følger: opdatering fra 4.7.z til 4.8.z, 4.9.z … springet 4.7.0, 4.8.0, 4.9.0 …

Tidligere generations opdateringsversion

Tidligere generations opdateringsversion enable major updates and minor updates except the latest major version. It make sense to take a “wait and see” approach to ensure the latest major version release is stable before.

Med den installerede WordPress Core version som 4.6.z. Hvis den seneste WordPress Core version er frigivet til 4.8.0, opdateres den automatisk til version 4.7.z. Der opdateres altid automatisk til den tidligere generation af WordPress Core versionen, hvor sikkerheden formentlig er løst og iorden.

Manuel opdatering

Manuel opdatering disable automatic updates. You update WordPress Core manually on the Dashboard Updates Screen.

Automatiske opdateringer og manuelle opdateringer er tilgængelige til temaer, plugins og oversættelser.
Det er også muligt at deaktivere automatisk opdateringer for de enkelte temaer og plugins.

Planlæg automatiske opdateringer

Dernæst opretter vi en tidsplan for automatiske opdateringer.↵
Opdateringsintervallet kan vælges blandt de følgende fire.

  • To gange dagligt (12 timers interval)
  • Dagligt
  • Ugeligt
  • Månedligt

You can also set the day, the day of the week, the hour and the minute of the Update Date.

At the time of automatic update, Automatically updates WordPress Core, Themes, Plugins and Translations to be updated.


If you have any trouble, you can use the forums or report bugs.


Small patches and bug reports can be submitted a issue tracker in Github. Forking on Github is another good way. You can send a pull request.

Translating a plugin takes a lot of time, effort, and patience. I really appreciate the hard work from these contributors.

If you have created or updated your own language pack, you can send gettext PO and MO files to author. I can bundle it into plugin.

You can also contribute by answering issues on the forums.

Contribute guidlines

If you would like to contribute, here are some notes and guidlines.

  • All development happens on the develop branch, so it is always the most up-to-date
  • The master branch only contains tagged releases
  • If you are going to be submitting a pull request, please submit your pull request to the develop branch
  • See about forking and pull requests

Test Matrix

For operation compatibility between PHP version and WordPress version, see below Github Actions.

  1. Download and unzip files. Or install WP Auto Updater using the WordPress plugin installer. In that case, skip 2.
  2. Upload wp-auto-updater to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘ Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  4. Configure settings through the Dashboard > Auto Updater menu in WordPress.
  5. God fornøjelse!

How do I use it ?

  1. Make an Auto Update Scenario
  2. Opsæt en tidsplan for automatiske opdateringer
  3. Disable Auto Update Themes and Plugins if necessary
  4. Automatically updates WordPress Core, Themes, Plugins and Translations to be updated at the time of automatic update
  5. The update history will be recorded


Why not update on scheduled time ?

The possible causes are as follows:

  • The cron schedule was updated somewhere else.
  • The cron schedule has been reset.

For example, when updating with wp-cli, the cron schedule may be updated.
The cron schedule does not match the one set in WP Auto Updater.
In that case, an alert is displayed on the settings screen.

Why are themes or plugins not updating at once ?

Depending on the update interval, it may not be surely updated.
If you update monthly, there are too many themes and plugins to update and you cannot update at once.
We recommend shortening the update interval.

The Schedule updates works better than premium plugin “Easy Update Manager”

No problems. The option to set a time, also when the interval is a week, is very useful.

Lightweight plugin with all settings which you need. U can set what do you want to update and this plugin do it whenever you want. If you want disable updates for some plugins, u can, if you want update only themes u can. Its possible get emails from updates and set up recipients of this emails. Thank you, I found exactly what i need 🙂
