Anonymous WordPress Plugin Updates

This plugin is only for WordPress 2.3 or later. Earlier versions of WordPress did not have the plugin update notification system, therefore do not need this plugin.

The plugin has two ways of installation, because on fresh 2.3 installations the update-check will take place before you were able to activate the plugin.

  1. update.php is a patched version of wp-admin/includes/update.php

    1. Do the upgrade to WordPress 2.3
    2. Make a backup of your wp-admin/includes/update.php file.
    3. Copy the patched version into your wp-admin/includes/ directory.
    4. Now you can use the plugins admin page savely.
    5. Note: The file will get overwritten during your next WP-Update, so do also install the plugin.
  2. anonymous-plugin-updates.php is the actual plugin.

    1. Unzip the ZIP file and drop the folder straight into your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
    2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
