Using the automatic update of my self-hosted WordPress blogs, I configured automatic updates of both the WordPress core as well as WordPress plugins and themes (through this plugin).
Whenever a core update occurs, I get an email like:
Your site has updated to WordPress 3.9.2
- How to publish page that can't be detected by search engines?
- WordPress not working on localhost
- PHP Notices appear when browsing any page in admin, but only for child theme, using code from WP Codex
- get_template_part in admin
- How to update/auto-update my private plugin?
Howdy! Your site at http://example.org has been updated automatically
to WordPress 3.9.2.
No further action is needed on your part. For more on version 3.9.2,
see the About WordPress screen: http://example.org/wp-admin/about.php
If you experience any issues or need support, the volunteers in the
WordPress.org support forums may be able to help.
The WordPress Team
I understand that I can completely disable administrative notification emails but I would prefer to only disable the above notification.
Therefore my question is:
How to disable update notification emails in WordPress?
add_filter( 'auto_core_update_send_email', '__return_false' );
An alternative is to create a simple Must-use plugin so this doesn’t depend on the theme.
Create a file
<?php /* Plugin Name: Disable Auto Update Mails Plugin URI: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/157056 Version: 1.0 Author: kraftner AuthorURI: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/users/47733/kraftner */ add_filter( 'auto_core_update_send_email', '__return_false' );
This can’t be disabled by a user and works independent from any themes.
