Configure global settings, view information about enrolled sites, see when the next update is scheduled, and more from the Add-ons page.
You can access the Add-ons page from anywhere in your Flywheel dashboard.
The Overview tab displays information about your enrolled sites, including the number of plugins on the site, the last time updates were run, the next scheduled update, and more.
This tab displays a list of plugins found across the sites you’ve enrolled in Managed Plugin Updates. Plugins with vulnerabilities are flagged in case you’d like to update them manually. Otherwise, they will be updated during your next MPU cycle. Hovering over the shield icon will reveal a link to more information about the vulnerability from WPScan.
You can quickly exclude a specific plugin from being updated across multiple sites via the Update toggle. You can also turn updates for all sites on or off from the 3-dot menu.
View all the vulnerable plugins across your sites on the Vulnerabilties tab. Clicking Vulnerability details will take you to an external page with more info about the plugin issue. Clicking Details for a particular plugin will reveal which sites it’s installed on, and includes a link to the site’s WP Admin so the plugin can be updated.
These default settings will apply to all your sites, though site-level settings will always take priority.
