Just saw this in bleeding edge dev.

Will this be including links to "View version X.x.x Details" for the plugins like the plugin page?

Think it is still useful to have quick access to view a plugin's change log before doing a bulk upgrade?

for some background thoughts on the plugin bulk upgrade see this ticket: #8589

I'd like to bring up a slight issue with the bulk plugin upgrade however, It works well, plugins get upgraded OK. But theres a problem with re-activation.

All the re-activation iframes load at once, Before plugins are upgraded, they're deactivated, All the iframes load with get_option('active_plugins') == active_plugins - upgrade_plugins.

Once the iframes finish loading, they update 'active_plugins' to include the plugin being tested.

The issue is, That, The data the pages are saving, are potentially stale as another thread may have modified it.. I couldnt understand why a few plugins were deactivated on my blog.. But this thought just hit me, and it would certainly make sense..

I've not verified this, But i'm pretty certain it's occurring.

Maybe we should put the site into maintenance mode for the duration of the bulk upgrade and forget deactivating and activating.

#12 @ryan

(In [12157]) Put site into maintenance mode during bulk plugin upgrade. Skip plugin deactivate/activate. Add compatibility info. see #10973

I think we need to somehow link to upgrade-core.php from plugins.php?plugin_status=upgrade. Or, to put it more generally, to make people aware that there is tool from mass-upgrading.

(Meanwhile, the admin UI is getting busier and busier, and eventually we’ll have to do something about that too. :-) )

#14 @Viper007Bond

#11130 When upgrading a single plugin, it's deactivated, upgraded, and then never reactivated. I assume the issue is related to this ticket/[12157].

#15 @Denis-de-Bernardy
15 years ago

I've attached a patch in order to allow plugins to insert the needed functionality for mass theme updates, and mass-updates of whatever else may be applicable.

#16 @ryan

(In [12204]) Add core_upgrade_preamble action. Props Denis-de-Bernardy. see #10973

Question (I know it doesn't belong here, put wp-hackers doesn't take my emails somehow at the moment):
For [12374]: As a plugin author, how and where can I set that upgrade notice? Couldn't find anything...
