We all (mostly) understand updates are important and I’m sure there were only good intentions by setting it but the
‘Connect your store to WooCommerce.com to receive extensions updates and support.’
Nag notice is ridiculous. A non-dismissable notice should never be allowed. I get you dont want people to just quickly click the dismiss button, so why not put an option at the bottom of the connect page ‘Dismiss this alert. I understand what this means’ even if it only dismissed for say 3 months and then you had to do it again. It would still be annoying but at least easier to deal with.
But no, in someones infinite wisdom they’ve decided you absolutely must connect your store and have no other option. Well here’s the code to add to stop that nag notice
add_filter( 'woocommerce_helper_suppress_admin_notices', '__return_true' );
** It is your own responsibility to keep your site upto date.
** Disabling this notice, may disable other woocommerce notices.
There are of course legitimate reasons why would wouldn’t want to connect your store, managing your updates your own way should always be allowed. So dev’s stop trying to dictate how you want/think things should run, choice is the key.
