Disable All WordPress Updates


This plugin completely disables the theme, plugin and core update checking system in WordPress. The plugin prevents WordPress from
checking for updates including cronjobs, and prevents any notifications from being displayed.

It’s very important that you keep your WordPress theme, core and plugins up to date. If you don’t, your blog or website could
be susceptible to security vulnerabilities or performance issues.

If you use this plugin, make sure you keep yourself up to date with new releases of your active WordPress version, plugins
and themes and update them as new versions are released (simply by deactivating this plugin for a short time).

What can I do to be up to date with new releases of my WordPress version, plugins and themes?

It appears most of the 1 star reviews are criticizing the need for this plugin, not how it works. I can attest it works great! Running a large scale highly customized implementation of WordPress this is perfect. Yes you should still keep it all up to date but no you don;t need to use WordPress' updater. I run separate checks to notify me by email when new versions of WP or any plugins/themes I am using come out and they get committed to git and deployed to a test environment to ensure they don;t break anything first so I don;t want my production install of WordPress nagging me about it and more importantly nagging my users telling them to tell me there is an update. This solves that problem. The only caveat to this plugin is know what you are doing to ensure you are still staying up to date.

What a ridiculous plugin. It disables updates but then in the description it contracts itself to say that updates should be made. Anyone who uses this plugin is asking to be compromised/hacked. Stay well clear of this.
