#39374 new enhancement

Update plugin translations immediately when updating plugin

Often when I run infinitewp to check for updates, I find plugins that haven't auto-updated yet, so I quickly manually update them from iwp. When I rescan my sites, many have translation updates, which are probably for the plugins that just upgraded, as they weren't there before.

Idea: why not immediately check and update translations after a plugin upgrade?

I can see no reason not to, esp. as the translation is a "data" component and nothing executable (until someone uses a translation for a buffer overflow, but then again, with auto-updating plugins there are bigger risks than that...)

WordPress actually does this and has been doing so for quite a while. It might be caused by your setup with updates being triggered by an external tool (InfiniteWP). Can you verify translations are update when manually updating plugins through WordPress admin?

OK, it could be InfiniteWP which I run manually, that's where I see it (or maybe MainWP, but that runs automatically and I don't recall the issue there). I'll try the manual updating when I get the chance. If that works, I'll let the IWP guys know about the issue. Thanks!
