Step 4

Across the top of the WordPress screen, you will notice that the page has loaded on the By version tab by default.

In order to use the Wait function in Glow, there first needs to be an update available – otherwise there is nothing to wait for.

The available updates are represented in different information bars across the middle of the screen, with the number of websites that require that particular update, indicated to the right hand side.

Click on any of the information bars to expand the panel.

Step 5

The header of the panel will now have changed colour, indicating that it’s open.

In the expanded panel will be a list of the websites that require this version upgrade.

To begin the Wait process, click on the checkbox to the left of each of the websites that you would like to set to wait.

Step 6

Having clicked on the checkboxes you will notice that the Wait and Update buttons in the bottom right corner of the panel are now clickable.

Click on the Wait button.

Step 7

A few things will now happen:

  • The websites that you selected will disappear from the panel
  • The number of sites requiring an update in the header of the panel will have reduced by the number you chose to update
  • The WordPress section of the client area for each of the websites you selected will now display a Waiting note on the WordPress tab.
