Individual Plugin & Theme Autoupdates

WordPress Toolkit always had the ability to configure site-wide autoupdate policy for plugins and themes, but there was no natural way to set up autoupdates for individual plugins and themes because WordPress itself didn’t support that. The situation has changed in WordPress version 5.5, where automatic updates for individual plugins and themes were introduced. To support this change, WordPress Toolkit v5.7 has added the ability to configure automatic updates for individual plugins and themes via the WordPress Toolkit interface.

The feature includes multiple changes in several places:

  • Autoupdates for individual plugins and themes can be toggled on the respective Plugins and Themes tabs of the site card.
  • If you want to toggle autoupdates for all plugins or themes on a site without changing the overall policy, there’s a separate ‘Autoupdate all plugins / themes‘ switch in the same place:
