When you have particular plugins or themes automatic updates turned off, all available updates for those will be automatically detected for you so you can review and update them manually if you want.


To update plugins or themes manually, please do the following:

  • Select to manage the site you want to manage updates
  • Click on the "Updates" tab
  • The available plugins and themes updates will be displayed (if any)
  • To manually update, click on the "Update" icon for that plugin/theme (see an example below)

Note: If you are sure that there is an update available for one plugin/theme but the iControlWP dashboard doesn't display it on your site, please read the article here.
