No Update Nag v1.1.1

I’d like to announce the release of the updated No Update Nag plugin (v1.1.1) for WordPress.

Removes the WordPress update nag that appears at the top of all admin pages when a new version of WordPress is released.

This release confirms compatibility with WordPress 2.9+ and includes some updates to the readme.txt.

The plugin’s official homepage is located at :

Comments welcome on this post for this version of the plugin. Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.

You could try my Admin Trim Interface plugin, which allows you to selectively remove parts of the admin interface. One such item is the version info in the footer.

However, if it’s just that one bit you need, and you’re willing to add code yourself, you can include this snippet in your active theme’s functions.php file:

 * Don't show the WordPress version nag in admin footer.
 * NOTE: Won't show WP version at all.
function remove_core_update_footer() {
  remove_filter( 'update_footer', 'core_update_footer' );
add_action( 'admin_init', 'remove_core_update_footer' );

In a future version of this plugin I may incorporate this capability, though at that point I’ll probably add an admin interface to configure what update nags to hide. I don’t want to hide them all outright out of fear someone won’t otherwise have any notice that WP has been updated. Probably would be in v2.0 of the plugin, so if you do add the above code yourself, make note of the Change Log for future updates to see if I’ve added the equivalent of the above.
