Is there a way to remove the 'Check Compatibility' link that appears under plugins in the plugin menu?

If so, how can I remove the link from a given set of plugins, and alternatively from all plugins at once?

  • What link? This doesn't seem to come up in either core code or Codex. – Rarst Jul 11 '14 at 13:12
  • Are you using WPML? WPML generates that link to check it's database for known compatibility issues with other plugins. – Welcher Jul 11 '14 at 13:42
  • @Welcher Yes I am. I just updated it and then they appeared. I never linked the two together though. Is there a way to switch it off? P.s. The link is shown below all plugins. – Phill Healey Jul 11 '14 at 13:57

That is part of WPML's functionality to check for known incompatibilities with 3rd party plugins. To my knowledge, there is no way to toggle that off.


As indicated elsewhere, this is actually part of the WMPL plugin.

To turn it off you can simply deactivate the additional installer plugin which is used to keep WMPL -and other 3rd party apps- up to date.

  • The 3rd party installer which in my opinion had some serious flaws, has now been removed from the product. – Phill Healey Feb 23 '15 at 11:48
