Latest version: 1.4 – Released June 15th, 2012
Completely disables the core update checking system in WordPress 2.3 and higher. It prevents WordPress from checking for updates, and prevents any notifications from being displayed in the admin area. Ideal for administrators of multiple WordPress installations.
Why would I want to disable it?
Most people should not disable this feature. It’s a fantastic feature of WordPress and I’m fully in support of it. However, administrators who maintain multiple installations of WordPress on behalf of other people (eg. clients, friends) may not want update notifications to be shown to the users of these installations. This plugin is for them.
This plugin is only for WordPress 2.3 and later. Earlier versions of WordPress did not have the core update notification system, therefore do not need this plugin.
Download the plugin using the link at the bottom of this page, unzip it and drop the folder straight into your
wp-content/plugins directory. Activate it from WordPress’ Plugin panel.
It’s very important that you keep your WordPress installation(s) up to date. If you don’t, your blog or website could be susceptible to security vulnerabilities. If you use this plugin, you must make sure you keep up to date with new WordPress releases and update your WordPress installation(s) as new versions are released.
