Bypassing AJAX Updates in WordPress 4.2 (and above)

WordPress introduced a new AJAX based Auto Update mechanism in WordPress 4.2 which makes updating plugins much cleaner and faster.

Unfortunately, we've had reports of some people trying to auto-update MemberPress and/or its addon's having issues after they've upgraded to WordPress 4.2. If you are experiencing this issue there is an extremely simple workaround.

Here's what you can do:

  1. Right-click the "update now" link for the plugin and select "Copy Link Address..." (the wording of this option may vary depending on the browser you're using)
    Copy Update Link
  2. Paste the link into your browser's address bar and hit enter
    Paste Update Link into Browser Address Bar
  3. Wait for the plugin to update
