Support » Plugin: Customize WordPress Emails and Alerts - Better Notifications for WP » Disable automatic plugin update notification by email

  • Resolved thomasgcom



    Since WordPress 5.5, we’re able to enable/disable automatic plugin update through our dashboard. It works perfectly fine, however an email is automatically sent when an automatic update has been completed.

    I’d like to know how to disable these automatic plugin update notifications, please

    I tried to create an “WordPress Core Automatic Background Updates” notification using this plugin and disabling it ; but it’s not working, i’m still recieving the updated plugin emails. I guess it only works when WordPress Core is updated, though i can’t find any other kind of notification that could solve that problem. Maybe it hasn’t been created yet, since the WordPress update has just been released ?

    Thanks a lot

    Hi @thomasgcom,
    Thanks for your message.

    This feature isn’t yet available in the plugin – it is on my roadmap to include in the next version though.

    For now, you can use some code in your functions.php file. This should work but is untested:
    add_filter( 'auto_plugin_update_send_email', '__return_false' );
    add_filter( 'auto_theme_update_send_email', '__return_false' );

    Hope this helps.

    Hi @voltronik

    Thanks a lot for your quick answer !

    If you don’t mind me asking, would it be possible to know when (approximately) that next version will be released, please ?

    Since i have a lot of websites using your plugin, knowing that would help me a lot for making a decision

    Hi @thomasgcom,
    No probs.

    I’m about to go away for a few weeks so it won’t be until ~mid-September.
