  1. Download Andy-VersionCheck-1.6.zip and unzip it.
  2. Copy the src/addons/Andy/VersionCheck directory to your server.
  3. From the Admin Control Panel Install the add-on.
How to use:
  1. Only those with Administrator privileges can run this add-on.
  2. In your browser address bar, add 'versioncheck' to your forum URL and press enter.
Upgrade option:

The Upgrade link will show if the option is selected in the Options page. If selected you will need to enter your Board path and Temporary path.

Most servers will already have a /tmp/ folder located inside the /home/user/ folder. You want to make sure you have selected a directory outside the DOCUMENT_ROOT. If your server does not have a /home/user/tmp/ directory you will need to create one.

The Upgrade link allows the admin to easily upgrade an add-on. When clicked the latest version of the add-on is copied to your server and the familiar XenForo Upgrade dialog is displayed allowing you to upgrade the add-on.

Absolutely LOVE this add-on! Makes life sooo simple! I also like that Andy included the link to each add-on in the list, making it quick and easy to go back to the resource page on his forum if needed.
really good way to stay up to date! tyvm!
Excellent! Every addon developer should have an equivalent. You are the best!
Brilliant! The upgrade option is a must!

Thank you for adding this, Andy. It just saves a lot of time.
Absolutely a must have add-on. Why this isn't core functionality is beyond me. With WordPress all I have to do to updated a plugin is do is press a single "Update" button right from the Admin CP. This brings that sort of functionality to XenForo 2, which makes life so, so, so much easier!
