You sent me a warning that the plugin "" needs an upgrade. How do I find out what plugin is named ""?

If you get an email from Wordfence that says The plugin "" needs an upgrade and lists a version number, don't panic. One reason this can happen is if plugins are embedded in your theme. When plugins are embedded in a theme you often don't get notified when those plugins have updates available. The easiest way to find out if this is the cause of your warning is to google the version number you received in the email and the theme name. Most often a theme developer has already released an update and if not, a forum post in their support area may help speed the process up.

Many thanks to Steve Day, a user with, who helped troubleshoot this one down.
