Ignore Theme Updates

MainWP Plugin allows you to “ignore” a theme update. This means that a theme update won’t show in the available updates list (Updates page and the Update Overview widget) nor the Status column of the Manage Sites table.

Themes can be ignored in two ways:

  • Globally – Ignoring a theme globally, means that the ignored theme will be ignored on all connected Child Sites
  • Per Child Site – a theme can be ignored on just one or a couple of child sites
