    Hello,

    Just wanted to check before I updated some plugins. Do I just FTP and delete the old plugin folder and replace them with the new plugin folder?

    It’s for bp-profile-visibility and buddypress-message-privacy

    Cheers,
    Nick

    Hi Nick,
    Welcome back.

    We have introduced auto updater for seamless upgrading of BuddyDev plugin. Please install this plugin

    https://buddydev.com/plugins/buddydev-dashboard/

    Make sure to enter your API Keys( required for updating premium plugins, free plugins can be updated without any API Key) and you can upgrade the plugins like any other plugin. It integrates to the WordPress upgrade routine.

    Here is a helpful guide on configuring

    Please do let me know if this works for you or not?

    Thank you

    Thank you for the quick reply. I also run the WPMU DEV dashboard on my site. Will these play nice together? So is a manual updated out of question as I would rather run as little number of plugins on this site as possible.

    thanks

    Hi Nick,
    Thank you for the prompt reply.
    You can manually update by deleting old plugin and uploading the new using ftp if you want to do so.

    The BuddyDev dashboard will not add any overhead like the other one. It uses minimum resource and that too only when WordPress checks for update.

    You can choose anyway to update.

    Hi Brajesh,

    I ended up just updating them manually. I have been using wordpress for a very long time and was comfortable to use this medthod. I had no issues at all.

    Thanks
    Nick
