Display Update Notification for Admins

Snippets by IsItWP

Do you want to display WordPress update notifications to admin users only? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick and useful code snippet that you can use to display update notification for admins in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

       global $user_login;
       if (!current_user_can('update_plugins')) {
        add_action( 'init', create_function( '$a', "remove_action( 'init', 'wp_version_check' );" ), 2 );
        add_filter( 'pre_option_update_core', 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 add code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
