Being a webmaster handling a few sites, doing updating can be quite a time consuming and repetitive process.
I am the webmaster for a number of website running on WordPress. Whenever there is an update on any plug-in, I need to go into individual website to perform the update. WordPress had designed such that the process is very simple with clicking of a few buttons.
However, the process of logging into individual site and doing the update repeatedly will take up a considerable amount of time. If updating a single website takes about 5 minutes, updating 10 sites will take almost an hour.
Some of these websites belong to a single organization. There were a number of occasions when, there is an announcement to be made over these websites. This meant that, the same article will be posted over a number of sites.
This can be easily done by using the simple copy and paste method. I copied the article and pasted it easily as new articles in these websites. Similarly to updating the plugin, I still have to log into the individual website, create a new article, paste the content and then post it. The process is time consuming and repetitive.
A one stop webmaster tool which can simplify the updating process will definitely save me time and energy. The one stop tool allows me to have a single login. In this tool site, I can easily see what are the plugs-in required to be updated. And with a few click, I can easily update all the plugs-in in all the sites which I manage without even leaving the tool site.
Similarly, within the tool site, I can easily create an article and post it to all the websites selected by me. I do not have to log in to individual website and do the time consuming and repetitive updating individually.
