Disable Update Checking for a Plugin (5 posts)

    I have modified one of the plugins which I have downloaded into my WordPress configuration and would like to disable update checking for this plugin to avoid accidental loss of customizations.

    I thought that there was a function for this, but I cannot remember where I saw it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Lea Hayes

    Did you ever figure out a solution for this? I am interested too.

    Thanks,

    You would have to edit the plugin file's version so it is higher than any update.

    You could try to CHMOD the plugin directory so that it couldn't be modified by WP. Or, use a function that actually disables the update check - this is nice because your client cannot see that an update is available.
