Updating a Plugin or Theme when using GPL Plugins is some kind of frustrating procedure as you need to deactivate and delete the plugin/theme first in order to update that plugin/theme.

In this case, to skip these steps, we recommend using the Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades plugin. It’s an activate & forget plugin and works out of the box. When this plugin is active, you can update any plugin or theme without deactivating and deleting them.

How to update plugins?

1. Download the latest .zip file for the plugin.
2. Log into your WordPress website.
3. Go to Dashboard.
4. Go to “Plugins”>“Add New.”
5. Click the “Upload Plugin”.
6. Select the updated .zip file.
7. Click the “Install Now” button and “Activate”.
Your plugin will be updated now.

How to update themes?

1. Download the latest .zip file for the theme.
2. Log into your WordPress website.
3. Go to Dashboard.
4. Go to “Appearance” > “Themes.”
5. Click on “Add New” > “Upload Theme”.
6. Select the updated .zip file.
7. Click the “Install Now” button.
Your theme will be updated now.
