How to Update PublishPress Add-ons

You can update PublishPress add-ons directly from your WordPress admin area.

Go to the “Plugins” screen in your WordPress admin area and you will see available updates. In the image below, the Content Checklist add-on needs updating.

If you see the message, “Automatic update is unavailable for this plugin”, that means you have not entered a valid license key. Before you can update, you need to have activated your license keys.

However, if you have successfully activated your license key, you’ll see a screen like the one below saying you can “update now”.

Update the add-on and you will now see an “Updated!” message.

Please note: WordPress does have a cache, so if you have just activated your license key, you may need to wait a few minutes before you see that an update is available.

Updating Plugins Using Different Methods

If you don’t want to update your plugin using the method above, there are alternatives including these:

  • Deactivate and delete the current version of the plugin using the WordPress admin. Upload the new version of the add-by going to “Plugins”, then “Add New” then “Upload Plugin”. Click here for more instructions.
  • Access your site’s files. Delete the current add-on files from the /wp-content/plugins/ folder. Upload the new files.
