In last tutorial, I showed you how to remove WordPress dashboard widgets to customize your WordPress dashboard with your own widgets and stuff. We learned how to remove every widget from the dashboard, except one.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to remove Welcome Panel from WordPress dashboard, which was introduced in the 3.3.0 release. This code will do the job.
Just add following code to current theme’s functions.php file:
//Remove WordPress Welcome Panel remove_action('welcome_panel', 'wp_welcome_panel');
