WordPress automatically checks and prompts plugin updates if there is any available. Updating plugins might wipe off any code customisation by the developer. Therefore developers prefer to have the plugin updates disable to prevent accidental plugin updates. This article shows you how to disable plugin updates using a PHP function.
Follow the steps below to edit your Theme setting file to disable plugin updates in WordPress:
On the Theme Editor , select the Theme you want to edit from the dropdown:
The files for this selected theme are listed on the right column under Theme Files. Click on the file named “functions.php”:
Insert the following code to the end of functions.php file and click Update File button to save the changes:
remove_action( 'load-update-core.php', 'wp_update_plugins' ); add_filter( 'pre_site_transient_update_plugins', create_function( '$a', "return null;" ) );
