Oh my, this is so bad. Your last update prevented any plugin or theme to be able to update. I was unable to update anything until deactivating your plugin. Wow. This should be taken out of production.

It worked great – until the last (auto-) update. Immediately the option to auto-update ALL of my plugins (including woocommerce and 23 others) disappeared and the wordpress auto update function itself was disabled. This sent me on a wild goose chase for half a day until I could locate your plugin as the cause.

This plugin offers a straightforward solution to disable bothersome WordPress update notifications and auto-update email notifications. With its user-friendly interface, it eliminates the need for manual code modifications, saving you time and relieving the annoyance caused by these constant updates and notifications.

This plugin works as described, and even better, it’s right to the point. No shenanigans whatsoever. Other plugin developers can learn from this one, albeit a simple plugin…which what most of us want. Again, it’s to the point and without being obtrusive. Works like a champ! Thank you!!!
