How to disable automatic updates in wordpress

WordPress Announces the automatic updates from version 3.7 on-wards, and this is for better security.

In WordPress, there are four types of automatic background updates:

  1. Core updates
  2. Plugin updates
  3. Theme updates
  4. Translation file updates

Configuration via wp-config.php

Using wp-config.php, automatic updates can be disabled completely, and core updates can be disabled or configured based on update type.

To completely disable all types of automatic updates, core or otherwise, add the following to your wp-config.php file:


To enable automatic updates for major releases or development purposes, the place to start is with the WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE constant. Defining this constant one of three ways allows you to blanket-enable, or blanket-disable several types of core updates at once.

define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );

Hope this help….!

You should contact the theme developer to get this fixed properly. You can delete that specific file from your theme until this issue has been patched by your theme developer for a temporary fix. WooCommerce will fall back on the default template file, bundled with the plugin.

Variable products won’t add to cart – Woocommerce Upgrade Issue

I have seen that still there some theme having bundled with old files for the add to cart template being used for variable products, adding a variable product to cart fails. This should be solved by the theme developers by updating the template file.

In order to solve this woocommerce upgrade issue, the quick solution is to delete the below mentioned file from the theme directory.


This will make WooCommerce use the new bundled template file and your variable products will add to cart again. Once your theme developer updates your theme, please check if it actually works as that will overwrite this change again.
