Support General Please allow developers to remove the Dashboard from the new Global menu

    I really like the integrations of all the tools into one main Metabox menu tree, but for the people who have the developer key, please allow us to remove the Dashboard/Welcome page, or to be able to “white label” it.

    It can’t be done the “normal” way because it has been directly plugged into admin.php.


    add_action( 'admin_menu', 'mb_remove_admin_submenus', 999 );
    function mb_remove_admin_submenus() {
        remove_submenu_page( 'options-general.php', 'certain-plugin-settings' );

    It would be great if we could “white label” that welcome page (better than removing it completely).

    Hi Guy,

    What/How do you want to “white label” the welcome page?


    I just find it to be a bit too “busy”.

    I can understand the usefulness of all the information and tabs for people who don’t already have all of the extensions, and I can understand the value to you for the purposes of marketing the tools since the core plugin is free.

    However, if we are building sites for clients, then we will add the extensions we need or which are beneficial to the build. In this case the additional tabs and marketing material feel like “clutter”.

    Anyway, it’s just my wish to be able to hide the dashboard welcome page (and all the tabs inside it) because I don’t have a use for them, it’s not that I want to rebrand anything.

    It’s also not all that important, but it would be nice, for the sake of (my personal perception of) tidiness.

    Hi Guy, I got it. Let me find the best way to hide/replace the dashboard.


    Great, thanks Anh.

    I was thinking that it is nice to have all the direct links to the documentation and support, so please don’t waste too much time on this unless there are more people asking for the same thing.
