I was wondering if there is a way to disable the security alerts regarding recommended updates that
a) show up in the backend as a banner at the top
b) are sent out via e-mail everytime someone logs in
I know, of course, that just disabling and thus ignoring them is not a good solution as one should be noticed about the issues and keep ghost updated.
However, the reason I want to do this, is because I have a self-hosted Ghost website that I manage for a customer. So of course I keep track of the security alerts and available Ghost updates, but I don’t want my customer to get these alerts when he logs in to the backend.
As for example members is not used on this Ghost website, and one of the security alerts in Ghost 3.X had to do only with the members function, I decided to wait a little longer for an update of his website, however until then my customer kept getting the notifications in the backend and via mail.
Instead of having to tell my customer that everything’s fine with his website and he doesn’t have to worry despite the alerts he’s getting, I just want him to not get noticed while I manage everything that’s necessary.
I couldn’t find this topic in the forum and simply disabling the Ghost update check in the config / privacy.md seemed to have no effect on the display of the security alerts.
Any suggestions would be welcomed!
Thanks and all the best,
EDIT / UPDATE: What I am referring to is this (from e.g. Security update available for Ghost 4.x and 5.x):
“We’ve also published a notification to all affected sites that will appear in Ghost Admin and shared the details here on the forum. Affected Ghost sites will also self-notify site owners by email.”
