I am trying to: disable update notices to no admins

URL of (my) website where problem appears: hidden link

I expected to see: a way to restrict WCML update notices to Admins

Instead, I got: WCML translation update notices for all

How can I restrict the admin notices relating to WCML to Admin permissions' users? I can't (and shouldn't) have this update notices to Shop managers, it's confusing. I tried using restrictive code in my theme's functions.php, but it doesn't work with WCML notices. Neither a plugin like (outdated) or even could help. I had to completely stop updates (with so that I can address this issue for good.

Look, I'm perfectly aware that my WordPress website, including it's WPML and WCML plugins, has to be updated. But I don't want non-admins, that can't do nothing about it, to be aware of outdated translation files, for instance.

I was hoping you already addressed this issue and have a great solution for it. Thanks.

The message for updating is displayed only for administrators.

As a test, I changed the version of WPML in my test environment and added a user to the role "Shop Manager". The message for updating is not displayed. I will attach a picture for you to see.

Please, could you disable all non-WPML plugins and see if the problem persists? Also, you have changed the "Shop Manager" role?

If this is not what you are asking, can you please elaborate a little more so I can better understand? Sometimes screenshots illustrating what you mean may go a long way to clarify what words fail to transmit so if you like make use of "upload an image" below the comment area.

Thank you.

Strange, the notices just stopped. I can't replicate the behaviour but I'm sure notices where definitely appearing to Shop Manager role.
