What WordPress 3.7 Brings In?
WordPress 3.7 was out back late last month with brining very important as well as amazing feature on board with focusing on improving security and stability of the content management system. While the one such improvement it brings on with this new version is that it automatically updates the things in the background. This means now you need not to worry about updating the things at your end at all.
Other Part of Story…
But, interestingly and surprisingly to know another part of story that some of us still wants to disable this automatic update feature as some of them may not be ready for it yet. Plus there are also users who run WordPress for their clients and for that they have got their own ways and options available to update WordPress to a newer version when available.
What To Do… To Disable Automatic Updates
Disabling automatic updates in WordPress is quite an easy thing to do. All you have to do is to simply add this line of code in your wp-config.php file and you are done.
define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );
The line of code will disable the WordPress automatic updater plus it will still let you get notified whenever there will be a newer version or update is available.
