Works Just fine, and much needed

This plugins works just as described. You upload it, install it, and then you’re done. Simply deactivate when you want to check which updates are available and (hopefully) you’ll be able to decide what you want to update and what you do not.

Phew, finally stopping the barrage

my site has an obscene number of plugins – so update checks were simply wrecking admin performance – and you could see effect on front-end pages with admin bar

I removed various things from the admin bar and enabled Disable All WordPress Updates and seeing a noticeable difference

some plugins still doing their own checks and http requests – but overall improvement

thanks

Simple y efectivo

Instalar y listo, nada que configurar, y así, hacer desaparecer ese HORRIBLE banner del desastre de Woocommerce V3. Gracias!
