Hey guys,

I have a very frustrating problem. I host podcasts on my website and every time there is an update, the podcast disappears from the page until I manually go in and do the wordpress updates. It seems there is an update just about every day and this is very tedious just to keep my podcasts up and running.

Does anyone know if there is a way that I can set my wordpress dashboard to do auto-updates that way I don't have to worry about my podcasts going down every day?

An interesting question.

I get frequent emails telling me that my site has auto updated. I assumed that was the default setting. I certainly don't recall ever having had to decide. Maybe it was too early in my learning and just "did it" subconsciously.

I certainly don't have a plugin that does it.

See if these help http://codex.wordpress.org/Configuring_Automatic_Background_Updates

There's a plugin in WP called "Advanced Automatic Updates."

Let me know if this help you out. I'm searching for alternatives in case I experience a similar system error.
