Step 4

You will now be shown the client area. The client’s name that you clicked in Step 3 above will be shown as the main heading at the top and the inner menu will load on the WordPress tab by default.

Step 5

From the tabs along the top of the WordPress screen, click Plugins.

Here you will see a list of all the plugins on this client’s website, in alphabetical order.

If an update is available for any of the plugins, you will see it represented as so:

5.6 –> 5.6.1

This indicates that an update of the plugin is required from version 5.6 to version 5.6.1.

To begin the Update process, click on the checkbox to the left of the version number.
