WC_Helper_Updater::block_expired_updates()public staticWC 4.1.0

Hooked into the upgrader_pre_download filter in order to better handle error messaging around expired plugin updates. Initially we were using an empty string, but the error message that no_package results in does not fit the cause.

{} It's a method of the class: WC_Helper_Updater{}

No Hooks.

Return

false|WP_Error. False to proceed with the update as normal, anything else to be returned instead of updating.

Usage

$result = WC_Helper_Updater::block_expired_updates( $reply, $package );
$reply(true|false) (required)
Holds the current filtered response.
$package(string) (required)
The path to the package file for the update.
