About WP Lookout
WP Lookout was launched in August 2020 with the goal of providing WordPress users with a better way to stay informed about what’s happening on their WordPress sites.
WordPress users depend on themes and plugins, and it’s important to know when they release new versions or make other notable changes. Plugins and themes bring so much value to the WordPress ecosystem, but a single bug or breaking change can affect the users, developers and builders who rely on WordPress to keep businesses running smoothly. Relying on auto-updates is convenient, but not always prudent.
WP Lookout was created in order to help every WordPress site owner or manager – regardless of technical familiarity – to keep their sites maintained easily and safely. We track the themes and plugins you depend on so you can make better decisions about how to manage your sites.
