disable plugin update notification
No doubt, WordPress Plugin Update Notification is a great feature for bloggers. As long as the developer of a plugin makes some changes on his plugin and gets it up to the WordPress Plugin Repository, you receive an instant notification on your dashboard asking you to Update Your Plugin to the latest version.

There are times when you extremely edited a plugin and you don’t wish to update that plugin to the latest authors version because you feel your version is better than the update, but this Update Your Plugin notification keeps bugging you on your wordpress dashboard.

The reason for this Article

I recently modified the Mobilepress v1.15 with more designs and functions, but Mobilepress now made an update with v1.2 which also sucks, I decided to figure a way to disable this Mobilepress Update Available Notification which I finally came up with this trick that works for me. I have successfully disabled this update notification with this. Read on…

  • Login to your WordPress Dashboard. Click on Appearance > Editor.
  • Now Locate Theme Functions (functions.php) on the right sidebar and click on it to Edit it.
  • In the very last line before ?> paste this code.


    function stop_plugin_update( $value ) {
    unset( $value->response['mobilepress/mobilepress.php'] );
    return $value;
    }
    add_filter( 'site_transient_update_plugins', 'stop_plugin_update' );

  • Click on Update File to save

This was how I disabled the Mobilepress Update Notification on my WordPress Blog.

Note: If you wish to also do this for any other plugin, simply get the root file and directory of the plugin by logging in to your cPanel, File Manager, yoursite.com/wp-content/plugins/theplugin/theplugin.php , then replace mobilepress/mobilepress.php in the code with theplugin/theplugin.php of your said plugin.

I hope you noticed that in this tutorial I used mobilepress/mobilepress.php because that’s what I wanted to stop from notifying me on updates.

I hope this helps, and please let us know if you encounter any issue.
