A Quick Trick To Update All Your WordPress Plugins at Once

by Annika Reyes on May 25, 2010

Ever log into your WordPress site and notice there’s about 20 of your plugins that have upgrades available?

It can be time consuming to go through each one, click the “upgrade automatically” link, move on to the next plugin…rinse, repeat.

If you’re using WordPress 2.9.1 or higher, there’s a neat little trick you can use so you can upgrade all of your plugins with just a few clicks.

Here’s all you do:

1. Go to the following URL: http://www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin/update-core.php (obviously you’ll replace “www.yourwebsite.com” with the actual URL of your website!)

2. On this page, go to the plugin section, check the “Select All” box and click the “Upgrade Plugins” button.

3. Watch all your plugins get automatically updated!

(If you’re using an older version of WordPress, there is a plugin, One Click Plugin Updater, that can do this for you.)

This is exactly the reason I love WordPress so much – either there’s a simple solution to automate your tasks for you built into the software or, if not, there’s a plugin available that will.
