6/47 updates completed successfully

I'm not sure WHY I'm using wpmu anymore. My sites run slower, the updates are not 'automatic' as advertised, the theme builder is slow.... anyway. I thought this was going to be more useful than it is... please help

    Hey there Steven,

    hope you're doing good and thanks for reaching us! :slight_smile:

    My sites run slower

    Could you please point to us these websites' URLs and also grant us with support access to those in order to have a better look?
    Here's a detailed manual page about granting us support access https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-dev-dashboard-enabling-staff-login/

    Additionally, have you utilize the appropriate plugins which can help you with speed issues? Like HummingBird and Smush Pro? Please advise!

    the updates are not 'automatic' as advertised

    Are you referring to the WPMUDEV Dashboard plugin updates?
    In order to enable these, you should switch the following control in WPMU DEV -> Manage -> General Settings

    If you want to enable automatic updates for all of your plugins in a WP installation, you should use a filter in the functions.php file of your child-theme.
    add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_true' );
    Reference: https://codex.wordpress.org/Configuring_Automatic_Background_Updates

    the theme builder is slow

    If you could point to us a website with this issue (and grant us access as I stated before) we may be able to provide some more insights on this. :slight_smile:

    Warm regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
