Run Hotfix for Supplemental WordPress Updates

WordPress, WordPress Plugins

Did you know that there’s a plugin for almost anything on WordPress? What if you wanted your bugs to be fixed before the next WordPress release? Well, there’s even a plugin for that, and it’s called Hotfix.

Hotfix is a powerfully yet simple plugin. Just keep it active and up to date to receive important bug fixes between official WordPress releases. For WordPress 3.3, Hotfix already prevents “plugin and theme styles from bleeding into the dashboard” and works around “a bug for people without built-in JSON support.”

Hotfix is not an official plugin, so it’s not an excuse to stop updating, but it’s safe to run between updates as it’s developed by two of the lead WordPress developers using fixes that are already prepared for the next official release.

If you aren’t running Hotfix yet, now’s the perfect time to install it.

    Thanks for the tip on the plugin. The owner of my previous hosting company groomed me to (try to) be on top of my game regarding keeping my site updated – especially regarding security. Every little bit helps.

    I’ve been hesitant to upgrade to 3.3 because of the bugs. So this Hotfix plugin is definitely a winner. I’ll have to investigate to see if all of the bugs are patched before I upgrade our sites.
