  • For advanced users there are a number of filters and actions you can use. More coming soon.

Deze plugin is een Fork van Update Notifier. De plugin was overgenomen, omdat de andere plugin geen updates meer ontving. Er is geprobeerd contact te leggen met de oude ontwikkelaar om te praten over de rechten helaas is hier niet op gereageerd. De volgende updates zijn toe gevoegt aan WP Updates Notifier:

  • Completely rewritten from the ground up using best practises for writing WordPress plugins
  • Code wrapped in a class so better namespace.
  • You can set the cron interval, allowing for more frequent checks.
  • Update checks trigger WordPress internal update check before notification.
  • Allows you to set the ‘from address’.
  • Allows you to set multiple ’to addresses’.
  • Makes use of the Settings API.
  • A number of available hooks and filters for advanced users.
  • Active support and development.

It’s ok for theme and plugins notifications, but notification about core updates does’t work for more than one year! This plugin probably won’t recieve an update anymore.
