In this video I’m going to show you how to stop WordPress from sending you annoying update notification emails. I’m going to show you two ways to do it: one is with a free plugin and another is with a free piece of code.

I recommend that you put the code into the functions.php file of a child theme on your site. That way, when the parent theme is updated, the code won’t be overwritten.

Here’s the link to the plugin used in this tutorial: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/disable-update-notifications/

Here’s the link to the child tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8n1h-85SMQ&list=PLlgSvQqMfii6X3D9S4mwM_inUYv8gq564

Here is the code used in this tutorial:

function wpllDontSendNotificationEmails( $send, $type, $core_update, $result ) {
if ( ! empty( $type ) && $type == ‘success’ ) {
return false;
}
return true;
}

add_filter( ‘auto_core_update_send_email’, ‘wpllDontSendNotificationEmails’, 10, 4 );
add_filter( ‘auto_theme_update_send_email’, ‘wpllDontSendNotificationEmails’, 10, 4 );
add_filter( ‘auto_plugin_update_send_email’, ‘wpllDontSendNotificationEmails’, 10, 4 );

Always backup your site just in case (or use a staging site), here’s how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1aYbayFpfU&list=PLlgSvQqMfii4l2cVV1TZ7j_kHs_2qmf4b
