Disable WordPress Auto-Updates for Theme and Plugins

Disable wordpress auto-updates,theme and plugins

A WordPress default installation will upgrade if minor version is released. This also happens to some themes and plugins. Some of these updated plugins or themes might break your site functionality(they tend to disable,block your site to maintenance mode or make some visual elements unavailable)

In addition when leaving the auto-updates on will consume some server resources. The “x” plugin checks once a day if there is an update to it, if there is one it notifies you. I’ve decided to get rid of all this auto-update thinggy on some sites just to be safe. If I want updates I can always check manually.

In functions.php (child or theme depends on what you have active):

In wp-config.php
