Recently I tried using v11 for a client demonstration and found the constant nag screens (New Updates are available pop-up window) kept derailing my demo. So I asked the question about how to turn off those pop-up nag screens.
There was a lot of ‘push-back’ against doing this in my PM’s and direct emails, but I really needed to do this no matter the supposed problems. If you are facing a similar problem, I found there is a way to do this, but it requires editing 2 important files in the system.
So, be warned. If you take this approach, it will be overwritten if you update your system.
My reason for doing this is to stop the constant pop-up while I am using v10. I have no desire to update to v11 so the constant nag screens are undesirable.
Here is the post detailing how to comment our the lines that prompt the pop-up nags for v11 ERPNext:
The same 2 lines get edited in v10 but they are located in different directories. So to do the edits in v10 the first one is located at: (Note: use the ‘#’ character to comment this file)
The second file is located at: (Note: use the ‘//’ characters to comment this file)
Then be sure to go back to the ~/frappe-bench directory and run:
While not a recommended solution, it worked for me.
Your mileage may vary…
