Can I set a 5 day delay on updates

I am wondering if it would be possible to delay theme and plugin updates - and if this is a good idea.

I personally believe there is some risk involved when updating all updates as the updates appear? So, I would like to say, don’t make an update until 5 days the update has been published. I this case, I would assume, any early bugs will have been fixed.

What are you thoughts on this?


Hi @Chrilles_Wybrandt

Advanced Auto Updates can be delayed by up to 30 days. The setting for it, Advanced automatic updates delay is on the Settings → General Settings page.

Naturally, this applies only to the automatic updates MainWP Dashboard performs, and only to the plugins/themes that you marked as trusted.

This is will not prevent plugins/themes showing an available update elsewhere on the Dashboard.
