Favorite plugins direct update


Extension Enhancement

Hi, It would be great to be able to have an automatic update function in the favorite plugin part. I wish I could upload my favorite plugin with its license attached and that it automatically updates all the time. So when I have a new site to install, i can just pull the last version of my favorite plugins instead of an old one without licence that i still need to register and update on the new site.

This would be great. Even if automatic licence transfer isn't possible, I could at least send the latest version of my premium plugins to my client sites.

Agreed and there are plenty of plugins that don't exist in the plugin repository - like the custom plugins I write for my clients. I'd like to be able to either upload them or provide a URL for them so that they could be checked for updates and added to the update listing. It would be great to extend this functionality to themes as well!

This would be fantastic for blueprint sites.

See this plugin: https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/download-plugin/

It allows you to download the zip of a plugin from any WP dashboard. If the plugin has been updated, you get to download the updated version.

Maybe something similar could be used to deploy to child sites? Instead of 'Download', the function would just 'send' to child site.

We could keep all our trusted plugins in the MainWP parent installation, constantly updating (but inactive), and then always have an up to date version available to deploy to a child site.

Feels like a pretty straightforward thing to do 🤷, but I probably don't know what I'm talking about.
