Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades

Easily upgrade your themes and plugins using zip files without removing the theme or plugin first.
By submitting this form you agree to our Terms & Conditions

WordPress has a built-in feature to install themes and plugins by supplying a zip file. Unfortunately, you cannot upgrade a theme or plugin using the same process. Instead, WordPress will say “destination already exists” when trying to upgrade using a zip file and will fail to upgrade the theme or plugin.

Useful plugin

By Ivan William Pfeifer (ivanabq) on March 9, 2023

Quite useful.

Very Bad Plugin*

By Malik Waris (warisdev5) on November 17, 2022

This plugin is very bad not working on it!

3 Months Now and still Stationero Problems

By tophatcc on November 8, 2022

Add plugin results in "The plugin does not have a valid header." Everything about this theme is low-grade and they are slow to update. I have over 100 themes and this is the only one that has continual update problems and even the recommended way of updating has problems. Pfft

Awesome and useful for easy upgrades

Excellent Plugin Though no Longer Required

By sanchitgoyal on September 23, 2020

This plugin was excellent. Used it a lot on My websites. However the functionality has been added into wordpress 5.5 now so it is no longer required.

Very good plugins

By nivansamedia on September 15, 2020

good plugins. working good. please update for new version WordPress..

Excellent but no-longer needed.

By straywasp on September 4, 2020

I've been using this plugin for a few years to update a custom theme, but the functionality has now been integrated into Wordpress. You can now update themes from the default theme upload screen. I'm not sure if the same is true for plugins as I don't use it for that.

Excellent plugin, hoping it remains maintained

By davbot on September 3, 2020

The title says it all, it takes care of updating plugins/themes that don't have auto update features. I just hope it remains maintained as it is the recommended update process by the primary theme we use.
