The “update now” banner – What does it do?

Last month AdRotate Pro and AdRotate Free underwent a small but important change in how updates are done. Updates are of-course important for advancing the plugin. Keeping things secure and modern. And to complete these updates you may see this banner from time to time after the update via WordPress.


What happens when you click it

Some updates may require you to click the big “update now” button. For example if the database has changed or certain data sets need updating. It’s important to do these updates from time to time to add new features, improve existing features or generally to make the plugin better.

For example, in a recent update the budgeting fields in the database were changed to accommodate future features. Another update re-instated the automated maintenance routines in AdRotate. And yet another update re-did a few indexes in the database to make things faster.
