Not sure exactly how you go about combing your repository for updates, but I assume the process is manual – you update a plugin or theme when you discover an update is available.
In this regard, it would be really helpful if you included a ‘Request Update’ link, something that let users easily notify you that an update is requested for a specific plugin.
Yeah, you might get an accidental false report once in a while, but it would still be more taxing than visiting plugin sites repeatedly yourself hoping to notice if a plugin update had been made available.
Agreed. Just now I noticed that Yoast WooCommerce SEO Premium is out-of-date, with some important fixes in the new version. It made me wish there was a way to quickly and easily let you know, which is why I came to the forum to request this feature.
