Are you looking for a way to disable plugin updates in WordPress? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to disable plugin updates in WordPress.
This snippet simply prevents WordPress from checking if there’s any updates for your plugins.
This could be useful if you’re creating a website for a client, and don’t want them to update their plugins in case you have changed the code in it, or if you’re worried that the update will break the site.
All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:
remove_action( 'load-update-core.php', 'wp_update_plugins' ); add_filter( 'pre_site_transient_update_plugins', create_function( '$a', "return null;" ) );
Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly copy / paste code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
