Global Plugin Update Notice

Description:

If you’re like me, you want to make sure to always be running the latest version of all of the plugins that you have installed and activated. The problem though is that you have to keep checking your plugins page to see if any have updates available. Even worse, if you have a ton of plugins uploaded to your blog, that list is rather long.

Enter Global Plugin Update Notice. When a new version of an activated plugin is available for download, you will receive a notice on all admin pages much like you do when a new version of WordPress is available. This saves you time and makes sure your blog is secure and up to date.

  1. looks like a good plugin, Viper. well done. for this, and for your WP Admin Bar, i wonder what it would take to be able to do what they do across all the domains a person might happen to manage, kind of the way WP Admin Switcher works? i know, i’m dreaming, yet can’t deny how handy THAT would be. ;-)

    thanks for your great plugins.

  2. Definitely a great plugin, but I’m experiencing a bit of a bug. It doesn’t always notify me of available updates. For instance, today my Plugin section notified me of an update for the Widget Changer plugin – which is listed on WP Codex. However, there was no Global Notification. The same thing happened with a couple of other update-able plugins listed on the WP Codex. I should have made note of their names.

    Anyway, I think you did a fine job with this plugin. Thanks for sharing it. :-)

    Though I also think that it should be AWESOME if this plugin could be combined with the Single Click Plugin Updater to make it even more complete.

    I want to keep this plugin simple. Those auto-updating plugins are are huge hassle for developers due to the numerous server configurations out there. It’d be more of a headache to me than it’d be worth. :)

    Weird. Let’s take this to my support forums though as it’s easier to debug in that format.

  5. One plugin author has updated his (it is a ‘he’) plugin every 3 days, and has done so for the last 8 months. I have seen very little evidence of changes during that time. I want to add that useful-but-bothersome plugin to an ‘ignore’ list within your great plugin. I also have some plugins installed but not currently activated, some of which I would like to an ignore list too. Is that possible?
    Thanks 007.

    Possible? Totally. You can do it yourself if you know a little PHP.

    And what plugin is it? I can check to see if all he’s doing is bumping the version number and if so, we can report him for abuse. ;)

  8. If I am not wrong he is talking of All in One SEO Plugin….I must say the author of this plugin is too proactive in updating the plugin every week(not 3 days everytime)

  9. I tried this out on WordPress MU 1.5 which uses WordPress 2.5 blogs.

    It didn’t work for me, when the plugin was activated all seemed fine, but any attempt to go to http://domain.net/wp-admin and any address that follows produced a blank white page. Only the main site worked.

    I also created a test site and when activating the plugin got the same results.

    Obviously since there was no longer a dashboard I had to chmod the file to 777 and then rename it to get rid of it.

    I guess it doesn’t work for the new MU

  10. I would second the need for an ‘ignore’ option. I have a plugin where the new version doesn’t work properly, but the old one does. The author has been unable to or won’t fix it, so I’d prefer to just sit with the old one, but not have the banner on my admin pages that tells me a new version is available. I’m sure it could be manually added with only a few lines of code, but my PHP is extremely limited. Can anyone suggest what code would be needed?

  11. This is a neat plugin! I would love the option to get an email when a plugin needs to be updated. That would be awesome because I manage 20-30 WordPress sites and checking each site for updates can be laborous!

    Thanks,
    Daniel Kedinger
