So first thing you’re gonna do is you’re gonna go to the back end of your WordPress website and you’re gonna go ahead and head over to your plugin list.

Now it’s important to update your plugins because if you don’t, it makes it susceptible for hackers to come in, you also may find that those plug-ins don’t work properly.

So you always want to go in and update those plug-ins. Now you’ll know if you have a plug-in update because you’ll see this little number one, or it could be another number, next to the actual plug-in title.

Now, that number represents how many plug-ins need an update at the moment.

So you can do this a couple different ways. You can scroll down, find the plugin that needs an update. You’ll be able to tell by this orangy bar here, and it’ll have an “Update Now” button.

Or, if there are multiple plug-ins that need an update, you can actually click the little check boxes on here, and you can mass update them from here just by hitting that “Apply” button.

Now, I only have one that needs an update, so I’m gonna go ahead and scroll down and hit that “Update Now” button. Usually doesn’t take very long for a plug-in to update. Once it’s done you’ll get that little green, “Hey, this has been updated” check mark, and you are good to go.
