In my opinion, it is an absolute requirement to gain control of the whole updates situation in WordPress.
The old adage ” If it’s not broke don’t fix it” really matters. Why would you spend a heck of a lot of time getting your WordPress to be Google friendly only to have your site broken by an inconsiderate update? This plugin is brilliant. Once your site is set up and is fast and efficient it allows you to forget updating forever. If your current plugins work well with your current WordPress then why change that? Easy Updates manager allows you to “freeze” your online masterpiece so that it cannot be broken by unexpected updates ever again! The only plugins I set to auto update are my security plugins. Thank you guys for a great plugin, one that should absolutely be a part of WordPress anyway! – Basilsimon
