In this article, we will show you how to update a plugin.

You can tell when a plugin needs to be updated simply by looking at the left menu. If you see a circle next to the link with a number inside, that shows you how many plugins need to be updated. You can see an example below.

plugin_update_1

1) Login to the Dashboard

2) Click the plugin link from the left menu

plugin_update_2

3) Locate the plugin that needs to be updated, then click the Update Now link

That’s it! You should see something similar to the following confirming that the plugin was updated correctly.

It is also a good idea at this point in time to check your site to ensure that nothing broke due to the update.
