Dephue Data Design Hide Update Notifications - Developer Edition hides update notifications from users. The plugin also (optionally) hides it's own existence. Granular control over who sees update notifications is possible based on login name, user email, or native WordPress role. This is labeled "Developer Edition" because there is no administrative interface; all changes must be made directly in the code.

Notes:

  • Please read the instructions; there is no administrative interface. Changes are made in the plugin file's code.
  • General instructions are in the FAQ
  • Uninstall instructions are in the FAQ
  • Everything you need to know is in the FAQ
  • So read the FAQ
  • This is still in 'beta' because it has not been test on WP < 3.5.2
  • The plugin has only been tested on PHP 5.3.x in a Linux environment
  • There is no web-facing interface, all configuration is done in the plugin file itself
  • The plugin does not remove the ability to perform updates, it simply hides the mechanisms used to do so

What gets removed:

  • The update notification in the fixed-position WordPress Admin Bar (top of the scrren).
  • The "Updates" submenu item in the Dashboard menu.
  • The circular image containing the number of updates available to plugins.
  • The main yellow-highlighted update nag at the top of the dashboard.
  • The Update to [...] button in the Right Now area of the dashboard.
  • The "Get Version [...]" text at the bottom right of the admin dashboard.
  • On the plugins page: The "Update Available (x)" text.
  • Plugins page: Text below plugin that reads "There is a new version of [...] available. [...]".
  • Themes page: Text that reads "There is a new version of [...] available. [...]".

How it works:

  • The plugin attempts to use jQuery and CSS to remove items from the DOM and/or hide them.
  • The "Updates" submenu item has to be manually removed from an array before it is rendered.
