    Hi. I recently installed this when on 4.9.8 to avoid seeing the 5.0.0 notice. That worked.

    However, now that I’m on 4.9.9, I see the 5.0.1 notice.

    FYI, updated to 1.4.6.

    @bjf2000: Hi,

    Just so we’re on the same page, are you referring to the notice that appears at the top of every admin page that (currently) says WordPress 5.1.1 is available! Please update now.? (Check out the screenshot included on the plugin’s page here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/no-update-nag/ to see an example.)

    There are other places in the admin where you will still be notified about a new release even when this plugin is active:

    * The Update to 5.1.1 button in the admin dashboard (as seen in the screenshot you linked to)
    * The Get WordPress 5.1.1 link in the bottom-right of the site footer

    The plugin does not attempt to remove the latter two, just the notice at the very top of admin pages.

    OK, I misunderstood then. I did see that example notification of v3.9, and noted that it looked different than what I still see, but I attributed that to just a change in style over the years.

    It turns out, however, that there are simply multiple notifications up there.

    Thanks

    The admin dashboard button and footer link are fairly low-key, so I didn’t see the need to remove those. The intent was to target the notice at the top of admin page, which can be quite annoying when you don’t plan to act on it anytime soon.

    However, I’ll give some thought to supporting the ability to remove the two other update indicators for those who really don’t want to see any update notices.

    Hi,

    I am presently running WP version 4.9.10 and installed the plugin to stop the version 5.x update notifications. I have a notification on the Admin Home page that I am on 4.9.10 and get the 5.1.1 update notification at the top of the Admin Updates page and the bottom right corner. After installing and activating the plugin, nothing changes at all. Am I missing something?

    @malae: Hi,

    The plugin only removes the notice that would appear at the very top of every admin page. The screenshot (seen on https://wordpress.org/plugins/no-update-nag/) shows the thing that this plugin removes.

    I described above two instances where the newer version of WordPress is mentioned, and those are unchanged (since those aren’t “nags”):

    * The Update to 5.1.1 button in the admin dashboard (as seen in the screenshot you linked to)
    * The Get WordPress 5.1.1 link in the bottom-right of the admin footer

    Those sound like they cover the 2nd and 3rd cases you mentioned. And the 1st case you mentioned is also not affected by the plugin (as intended): the “WordPress Updates” page will still tell you there is a new version of WordPress. I’m considering adding more comprehensive disabling of WordPress updates in a future release.
