apply_filters( 'send_core_update_notification_email', bool $notify, object $item )

Filters whether to notify the site administrator of a new core update.


By default, administrators are notified when the update offer received from sets a particular flag. This allows some discretion in if and when to notify.

This filter is only evaluated once per release. If the same email address was already notified of the same new version, ClassicPress won’t repeatedly email the administrator.

This filter is also used on about.php to check if a plugin has disabled these notifications.



(bool) Whether the site administrator is notified.


(object) The update offer.
