Let’s hide the update notice in administration!

Published: On Thursday, November 1, 2007

Sometimes it can be useful to hide the new notice on the top in the administration, added in version 2.3. (I speak about the notice that's shown if you don't use the latest version of WP.) I don't really know how many people would like to switch this announcement off, so I'm not able to consider how useful such a switch button would be, but as far as I know, there is currently no switch in Settings, yet. :-) And I need it, from time to time.

Maybe I could bring up one short explaining example… for some projects I use localized (czech) version of WordPress and this modification is not prepared immediately after each official release. Sometimes I must wait a few days, sometimes a week. And during this waiting I have the notice…

A new version of WordPress is available! Please update now.

… before my eyes. I don't care sometimes about official releases. To see or not to see the notice? You can surely find another possible reasons why to use my hider. It's a plug-in, just activate it.

    Nice one. I don't want my clients to be worried by the notice or to attempt an upgrade themselves. This is perfect.

    Found you on Google… I'm staying with WP 2.7.1 at the moment for plugin compatibility reasons, and this is just what I needed to stop my clients getting worried! Thanks very much for sharing.

I quit working with WordPress, comments are closed. My plugins will not be updated any more – at least not by me. Feel free to modify my source codes though… Also I am not able to provide support, sorry. –Kahi
