Upgrading Plugins

Upgrading a plugin is straightforward:

  1. Deactivate the plugin (Click the green circle in Admin -> Plugin Management)
  2. Upload the new plugin version, overwriting the old one
  3. Reactivate the plugin by clicking the circle again.

If you encounter any problems, try going to Admin -> Maintenance and clearing the caches. Follow that up with a hard refresh (CTRL+F5) and you should be back on track.

Note: It's not necessary to uninstall a plugin to upgrade it, but it's generally safe to do so. Be aware that manually uninstalling and reinstalling a plugin will send it to the back of the plugin order. If you have any problems, leave a note for the plugin developer on the plugin's page in the Plugin Downloads forum.
