How To Update A WordPress Plugin

WordPress and WordPress plugins are software, and they do need to be updated on a regular basis. The first thing you’ll need to do is log into your WordPress account.

Then on the left hand side, you’ll see plugins in the dashboard. You’ll see there’s a one next to it. That indicates that there is a plugin that needs to be updated. All you need to do is at this top bar right here is look for “update available”, click on it, and it will automatically pull up all the plugins that need to be updated. If you have multiple, all you need to do is click the button here, that will select all the plugins in this list, then click on bulk actions, and up-to-date. Click apply, and now your plugin is up-to-date.

The one thing you’ll want to do is make sure you check your WordPress afterwards, and make sure it didn’t create any problems. Since it is an update, it may cause interference with your WordPress site.

And that’s how you update a WordPress plugin.
