Recently I purchased a great plugin through Envato Market but soon discovered that I was not receiving update notices in WordPress admin panel. I only found out because Wordfence alerted me that my plugin was out of date. Long story short… Here is what I eventually learned from the developer:
“Seems your server can’t connect to update server. So, the only way is to update plugin manually. Any other plugins are updated from wordpress.prg. My plugin is updated from separate server.”
It is not realistic to go through a manual process. I received a refund, so no problem there.
My question is:
How do I know if a plugin updates from wordpress.prg BEFORE I purchase? I don’t want to find out after the purchase and have to go through refund scenario. I’m gun-shy now about purchasing plugins on Envato.
