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

The weather is changing again — a good time to look at some of the insanely cold places where people actually live. The coldest temperature ever recorded was -94.7C in Antarctica.
As winters are going on in India so i am sure that after reading this list you will also start feeling chill. The list shows that Antarctica is the coldest place on earth.

Check out the coldest places in the world that hold the records for the coldest temperatures ever measured on Earth.

10. Fort Selkirk, Yukon (Canada) – Fort Selkirk is located in Yukon, Canada. Lowest temperature here was -58.9 C (-74 F). In 1950 this place was deserted because of extreme cold conditions. It is now inhabited again but is only accessible. The coldest month is January and the lowest temperature is -74 °F.

9. Prospect Creek (USA) – Prospect Creek is located in Alaska, USA and the coldest place in United States. Lowest temperature was recorded at -62.1 C (or -79.8 F) on 23 January 1975. This place has a sub-arctic sort of weather which means that winters last for a long period of time and summers are very short.

8. Snag and Mayo, Yukon (Canada) – Snag and Mayo are two villages located in Yukon, Canada. Snag is 25 km far from Beaver Creek, Yukon, Canada. Lowest temperature recorded in Snag was -63 C (or -81 F) on 3 February 1947. Lowest temperature in Mayo was -62.2 C (or -80 F) on 3 Feb, 1947. The weather is chilly and freezing, the coldest month is January.

7. Eismitte (Greenland) – Eismitte is located in the interior of Greenland. It was a campsite of Arctic expedition at 3000 meters above sea level. Lowest temperature recorded here was – 64.9 C (or -85 F). The name Eismitte means Ice-Center in German.

6. North Ice (Greenland) – North Ice was a research station of the British North Greenland Expedition on the inland ice of Greenland. It had lowest temperature on 9 January 1954 which was-66.1 C (or -87 F).

5. Verkhoyansk (Russia) – Verkhoyansk is notable chiefly places in Russia for its exceptionally low winter temperatures and some of the greatest temperature differences between summer and winter on Earth. It has population of 1311 in 2010. Verkhoyansk’s lowest temperature was -63.2 C (or -81.2 F) in February 1892. Verkhoyansk had temperature of 40.0 C on 19 July 1982 which gives a temperature difference of 109.8 C (or 197.5) between highest and lowest temperature of Verkhoyansk. It is also the biggest temperature difference for any place.

4. Oymyakon (Russia) – Oymyakon is known as one of the candidates for the Northern Pole of Cold, the other being the Verkhoyansk. Oymyakon is the world’s coldest inhabited area having a population of 472 in 2010. The land area is always frozen. In 1924, temperature was dropped to -71.2 C (or -96.2F). It is also the lowest temperature recorded on earth except Antarctica. One interesting fact is that on July 28, 2010 the temperature was high at 34.6 C (or 94F), yielding a temperature range of 105.8 C (or 190.4 F), second highest in history.

3. Dome A (East Antarctica) – Dome Argus is an Antarctica plateau located near East Antarctica at 4091 meters above sea level. The coldest temperature in Dome A was -82.5 C (or -116.5 F) in July 2005. It is the highest point of ice sheet in Antarctic region.

Plateau station is now inactive where the lowest temperature recorded was – 86.2 C (or -123.16 F). Lowest temperature recorded in Amundsen-Scott South pole station was -82.8 C (or -117F). It is also the only land area where the sun is continuously rise for 6 months and fall for rest of the year. This is one of the most important reason of such extreme weather condition.

1. Vostok Station (Antarctica) – Vostok Station is a Russian Antarctic research station at 3488 meters above sea level. This station is at the southern Pole of Cold. It has world record of measured lowest temperature ever on earth. Lowest temperature ever recorded was bone chilling -89.2 °C (or -128.6 °F) on 21 July 1983.

WordPress : How to Add Infinite Scroll to Home & Category Pages

I was working on Infinite Scroll functionality in WordPress. Initially i was trying to use jetpack (WordPress plugin) to implement the same but i was not able to understand how jetpack works and i did not get proper screenshot and online support to make me understand it properly. So i have Goggled more and finally i successfully implemented Infinite Scroll on VaseemAnsari.com. You can check the home page, category page, archive page and other pages where pagination generally comes.

Let me guide you how easy it is and how can you implement the same Infinite Scroll on your WordPress blog.
Step 1. This simple functionality uses javascript “jquery.infinitescroll.min.js”. You can download a copy of “jquery.infinitescroll.min.js” from the GitHub repository, and drop it into the “scripts” or “js” folder of your WordPress theme.

Step 2. Use any Ajax loader image. I hope you already have so many or you can find loading images on Google. You can pick out the ajax-loader.gif of your choice, and add it to your theme “images” folder.

Step 3. You need to register and enqueue the required jquery.infinitescroll.min.js script in functions.php (You can find this file in your wordpress theme.)

function custom_theme_js(){
	wp_register_script( 'infinite_scroll',  get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/jquery.infinitescroll.min.js', array('jquery'),null,true );
	if( ! is_singular() ) {
		wp_enqueue_script('infinite_scroll');
	}
}
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'custom_theme_js');

Step 4. Then you need yo use below function to make the magic happen. You can write this function in functions.php file.

function custom_infinite_scroll_js() {
	if( ! is_singular() ) { ?>
	<script>
	var infinite_scroll = {
		loading: {
			img: "<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/images/ajax-loader.gif",
			msgText: "<?php _e( 'Loading the next set of posts...', 'custom' ); ?>",
			finishedMsg: "<?php _e( 'All posts loaded.', 'custom' ); ?>"
		},
		<?php /*?>
			img				: 	The path to the ajax loader image, we put the image in plugin folder
			nextSelector	: 	Selector for the “previous posts” link.
			navSelector		: 	Containing selector for the previous/next navigation links.
			itemSelector	: 	Selector for posts. This might be .hentry, .post, .etc
			contentSelector	: 	Containing div for your posts
		<?php */?>
		"nextSelector":"#nav-below .nav-previous a",
		"navSelector":"#nav-below",
		"itemSelector":"article",
		"contentSelector":"#content"
	};
	jQuery( infinite_scroll.contentSelector ).infinitescroll( infinite_scroll );
	</script>
	<?php
	}
}
add_action( 'wp_footer', 'custom_infinite_scroll_js',100 );
