This all started out simply checking on an issue and updating plugins, nothing major should happen right?

Disabling Plugin Updates for Specific Plugins Snippet

Unfortunately this site the person who owns it doesn’t want to pay for plugin updates unless they need to. So I had to implement some code to hide the plugins that would essentially never get updated. Otherwise it would consistently say 10 plugins would need to be updated.

Allowing Automatic WordPress Core Minor Updates when using git

Same site, git is used for tracking some custom plugins. Unfortunately WordPress will give this message and not process minor updates which might include WordPress security updates.

This site appears to be under version control. Automatic updates are disabled.

The easy fix is to use the automatic_updates_is_vcs_checkout filter.

Booster for WooCommerce Issues

Booster for WooCommerce has over 100+ options for improving and changing WooCommerce’s functions. The most recent update breaks Fluent SMTP and takes over the wp_mail function so Fluent SMTP can’t send email.
