Is there a way to mark a plugin as "never upgrade this plugin" ?
I can't upgrade my OpenID plugin, and this prevents me from clicking the otherwise convenient "Upgrade All Plugins" button.
Either 1.) edit the plugin header comment in the main plugin file and change the
Version: value to something like 999, or 2.) move the plugin to the "Must Use" plugin directory:
Here's an example from
/wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php of the plugin header comment for Akismet:
/* Plugin Name: Akismet Plugin URI: http://akismet.com/ Description: Used by millions, Akismet is..... Version: 2.5.2 Author: Automattic Author URI: http://automattic.com/wordpress-plugins/ License: GPLv2 */
Here's a blog post that explains the "Must Use" plugins (albeit I don't understand why he chose the title he chose):
