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 2 ways:

  • Globally – Ignoring a theme globaly, 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
