Backup Your Plugins and Themes Before Updating
You can now automatically back up your plugins and themes before updating them. This added layer of protection not only ensures that you won’t lose any customizations or important data during an update but also provides a safety net in case there are any issues with the updated version. Should you encounter any problems, you can quickly revert to the previous version with just a few clicks, allowing you to maintain your site’s functionality until the issue is resolved. You can find the backup settings in the 99Plugs Update Manager Settings tab.
Rollback Feature: Restore Previous Versions of Plugins and Themes
Ever updated a plugin or theme only to find that it caused an issue with your site? Worry no more! The new rollback feature allows you to easily restore a previously backed-up version of your plugin or theme, minimizing downtime and keeping your site running smoothly until the issue is resolved.
Fallback Update System: Taking Updates to the Next Level
In rare cases, some plugins and themes may override the normal WordPress update process, preventing them from being updated through the standard method. To address this, we’ve developed a fallback update system that allows you to bypass this and update your plugins and themes directly from within the 99Plugs Update Manager.
- All update keys get entered into the 99Plugs Update Manager, not within the individual plugins or themes themselves. The update keys from 99Plugs are separate from any license keys that may be provided by the plugin author, and are used solely for updating the items you’ve purchased from 99Plugs.
- You can simply ignore plugin or theme specific license key requests. You do not need license keys to install or use them on your websites, regardless of how many websites you have. A license key is only required if you want to receive support and updates directly from the author of the plugin or theme. These license keys do not restrict the functionality of the plugin or theme, and they will work perfectly fine without entering a license key.

- It’s important to note that the 99Plugs Update Manager itself is also a plugin, and in order to receive updates for the updater plugin, you will need to enter the update key for the 99Plugs Update Manager as well (unless you have a VIP Access Pass).
