Update: An official post was made about how to customize the Automatic Updates however the “define” below will still turn them off completely.
If you want to disable the automatic updater ENTIRELY in the latest WordPress 3.7 update you can add this code to your wp-config.php
define( 'AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED', true );
The latest major release of WordPress is out today (Named Bessie – but when I look at it I keep thinking Nessie). The biggest new addition from camp WP is the new “Automatic Update” feature for minor security releases. This means that WordPress 3.7.1 will update without you even knowing. I can’t seem to locate any toggle “opt out” area so I guess we are going to let “WordPress Jesus” take the wheel here. I can only hope that this won’t accidentally cause me or any of the sites I’m involved with problems. I’m all for security updates! I’m for automatic everything! But I do like to have the choice.
Remember, this is a WordPress theme for developers who are already familiar with the way Twitter Bootstrap is doing things. I’ve moved over and adjusted all the documentation from our 2.3.2 version of the Theme.
Download the zips from the repo and let me know if you create something awesome. I’d love to hear about it.
I listen to A LOT of Podcasts about the web development industry. I like them because it makes me feel like I’m part of the team. Being so cut off from the ability to go to conferences, meetups or be involved with a cutting edge team that is wanting to Innovate, it is difficult for me to feel “connected” to the work. These shows keep me connected to the community, make me feel like I still belong and keep me motivated to keep wanting to create awesome stuff.
Anyway, I think I stole the joke from a Reddit thread and sent it to the ShopTalk Show guys. I won’t tell you what it is. You will have to listen.Listen to the Episode
I stumbled upon this web app but I can’t remember how I got there. One of the perils of the internet is all the holes and interconnected highways of links. Easy to get lost.
