Skip this update

Post by Orko »

If I select to skip an update using the Skip this Update option, and a newer update becomes available before the time I specified for the Skip expires, will it be shown, or will all updates be skipped until time expires or never if forever is chosen?

I hope that made sense!

The "skip" action is only affecting the selected program for a specific update (a given version number). If another versions comes out, even before the end of the skipped period, it will be displayed to the user.

Tools > Skip list editor allows you to see / edit the content of the currently skipped items.

Thanks! That's exactly what I was hoping it would do, I can use it to hide betas when they show up as an update.

Exactly. You can also report them here so that I can quickly fix on server side (no SUMo client update needed, just a new check) : https://www.kcsoftwares.com/forum/viewt ... ?f=11&t=10

Sure, I do intend to continue to report betas showing up even though I have betas turned off, but because this forum isn't very screen reader friendly in that it doesn't provide convenient markup that can be used to navigate it so I often have to go through each forum page line by line, I will use the report feature in SUMo instead.
