Where is the Update Link in Admin?


Hello, it has been a very long time since I have visited my visio list due to my heavy workload. I am just wondering why there is no update link for the core like there is for the plugins? Sure would lighten my workload and make it easier for others as well. What is the logic for not having a link to auto update?

Also wondering if I can just update from 1.2 to 1.5 to save some time?

Thanks for your time.

The logic is simply a lack of development energy availability, any available time goes into more pressing issues.

I did in fact create this function a few years ago but it was a bit tricky as we had to hook it into the license system. If the script were free (like wordpress) or if we had more than 1 active developer (like wordpress) or we received hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants (like wordpress) then we would no doubt have this function up and running. However, we don't. So instead you need to spend the 1-10 minutes to update manually.

yes, as far as I recall you can update from 1.2 to 1.5, the updater will walk you through the steps.
