How to Update a Plugin in WordpressUpdating a plugin in Wordpress
When you' re not used to WordPress plug-ins, they are small PHP scripting that extends the things you can do in WordPress. Have a look at our currently suggested WordPress plug-ins to get a fast overview of some of the features a plugin can offer on your website. Prior to updating your WordPress plugin, I suggested that you back up your databases and website data.
This way, if something doesn't work with the new plugin anymore, you can simply reset your WordPress page to the previously working state. The following instructions will quickly update all of your WordPress plug-ins that are currently out of date to the latest release.
Log in to your WordPress Administrator Dashboard. Either click the update button at the top-right corner of the page or click the Update button on the navigation bar on the right to go to the WordPress Update page. You can also click on the Links Plugs button in the navigation bar on the right to go to the plugin page, where you can also update them.
Once you've gone to the WordPress Update page, you can just select the checkbox next to Select All under the section on plug-ins and click the Update Pluginsbutton button. Click on the View 2.5.7 detail to display a pop-up with the latest changes to the plugin. As a result, all your WordPress plug-ins will be updated to their latest versions at once, and you should see a successful page when the update is complete.
Instead, if you went to the WordPress plugin page, you can click the Update Now link next to any obsolete plug-in to start the upgrading from there. As a result, the WordPress plugin you select will be upgraded to the latest release, and you should now see the Update Plugin page indicating that the plugin has been successfully upgraded.
Now you should know how to update your WordPress plug-ins either all at once or individually. It will help keep your website fast and provides better protection for your WordPress install. I would also suggest you update Wordpress topics that you may also use to ensure that your WordPress page is as effective and safe as possible.
