Disable plugins and themes update notification
So I have just drafted my first plugin. Actually it is really easy. All I had to do, was create a directory with the plugin name in my
/wp-content/plugins/ directory. My new directory
/wp-content/plugins/disable_plugins_themes_update_notification only contains one file
disable_plugins_themes_notifications.php. The name of the main
.php file should be the same as the name of the directory it is in. WordPress finds it automatically.
The plugin hooks into two actions:
and sets them to false by the built in function
The code is:
// Disable auto-update email notifications for plugins. add_filter( 'auto_plugin_update_send_email', '__return_false' ); // Disable auto-update email notifications for themes. add_filter( 'auto_theme_update_send_email', '__return_false' );
More info about WP’s hooks can be found in this Kinsta’s comprehensive article.
