Disable Update Notification for Individual WordPress Plugins

Well i strongly recommend to update the WordPress plugin whenever a new update is available. This is required for proper functioning of your WordPress website and also prevents hacking of your WordPress website. Plugin developers are constantly fixing bugs, closing security gaps, increasing efficiency, and updating other aspects of the plugin that will benefit your site.

But there might be a situation where you would want to hide a plugin update notification. Suppose if are working for some non technical client or if you have made some modifications to a plugin that you don’t want to be overwritten?

Here are 2 simple tricks to hide the plugin update notification.

Trick 1 – Modify Plugin Version
The easiest solution is to open up the PHP file in the plugin root directory and modify the version number. At the top of the file, there will be some commented out variables that WordPress pulls in. You can update the plugin version from 1.1 to 100.1. A version number so high that the plugin will never get there, for example 100.1.

Plugin Name: WordPress PopUp
Plugin URI: http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/the-pop-over-plugin/
Description: Please don’t upgrade this plugin. If required then please contact Vaseem Ansari to upgrade it. Allows you to display a fancy PopUp to visitors site wide or per blog. A *very* effective way of advertising a mailing list, special offer or running a plain old ad.
Version: 1.1.2
Author: WPMU DEV
Author URI: http://premium.wpmudev.org
Textdomain: popover
WDP ID: 123

Trick 2 – Prevent Update Notification by Modifying Theme functions.php file
Another solution is to open the functions.php file of your WordPress theme and add the below function there. This function will disable the individual plugin update notifications in WordPress admin. By using this trick you can disable update notifications for specific/individual plugin.

/**
* Hide the notice of plugin update available in admin There is a new version of WordPress PopUp available. View version 1.1.3 details or update now.
* Usage – Automatic
*/
function hide_akismet_plugin_updates( $value ) {
unset( $value->response[‘akismet/akismet.php’] ); // For example if you don’t want WordPress to show update notifications for akismet plugin.
return $value;
}
add_filter( ‘site_transient_update_plugins’, ‘hide_akismet_plugin_updates’ );

function hide_wordpress_popup_plugin_updates( $value ) {
unset( $value->response[‘wordpress-popup/popover.php’] ); // For example if you don’t want WordPress to show update notifications for wordpress-popup plugin.
return $value;
}
add_filter( ‘site_transient_update_plugins’, ‘hide_wordpress_popup_plugin_updates’ );

Lovers on the Sun – David Guetta feat. Sam Martin

Let’s light it up, let’s light it up
Until our hearts catch fire
And show the world, a burning light
They’ve never shined so bright
We’ll find a way, we’ll find a way
To keep the cold night
From breaking in over the walls
Into the wild side
The hunger satisfies

We’re burning up
We might as well be lovers on the sun
We might as well be lovers on the sun
We might as well be lovers on the sun

We’ll never know, we’ll never know
What stands behind the door
But I got a feeling
It’s a feeling that’s we’re dying for
Just close your eyes, and hold your breath
Because it feels right
We’ll keep it moving till we make it to the other side
And let’s enjoy the ride

We’re burning up
We might as well be lovers on the sun
We might as well be lovers on the sun
We might as well be lovers on the sun

Let’s light it up, let’s light it up
Until our hearts catch fire
And so the world, a burning light
They’ve never shined so bright

Check out the video of this amazing song.

Inspiring scornful pity life of attappadi domicile

The cunning leaders are scheming and plotting, but attappadi tribal domain is well known for its vexation. Crores have been spend on the areas of agali, puthur and sholayur panchayat but attapadi still remains as a pitiful symbol. It is a tearjerker of a couple that they lamented on the death of their child and carried their dead child in a carry bag to Coimbatore for his cremation after disgusted with the delay in response from the authority to which they pleaded to avail any aid.

Child fatality is prevalent among the tribes owing to malnutrition and lack of adequate medical avail in the domain. A recent report shows that approximately 108 women are suffering from malnutrition in gestation period and there is an increased probability for death during delivery and the child born for them will be a malnourished child which will result in infant mortality.

There must be a system to monitor the utilization of money allotted for attappadi domiciles and government must ensure that the money is used for exploitation and fortification of attappadi tribal domiciles.
