Once you have selected the plugin/website you can click on ” Update ” to trigger the update. 

Quitting the page will not interrupt the update. You will get a notification when the update is completed.

2. New Dashboard ✌️

You know how we like to talk with you and discuss your needs. During our last users-testing sessions, we realized that most of you didn’t know that all the dashboard cells were clickable. 

Your journey toward a feature was Project name > Feature (ie: backup). 

We removed this useless click by making more obvious the fact that you can click directly on the feature name (ie: backup).

Every useless click matters, and we are committed to remove all them! 💪

3. It’s Now Possible to Whitelist WP Umbrella’s IP Adresse ✅

Sometimes, we were not able to communicate with your WordPress sites because we were blocked by hosting providers or security plugins.

We have upgraded our infrastructure and now have a fix IP that you can whitelist: 

You can find the whole documentation just here: whitelisting WP Umbrella’s IP adresse.

This is a major improvement for Cloudflare users. 

4. You Can Now React in Real Time To Product Updates 👎 👍

Last but least, we have installed a new widget in the application to notify you when we update WP Umbrella. Just here:

This will display a sidebar listing all our product updates.
