    The latest SexyBookmarks version places an annoying ad banner at the top of every WordPress admin page, with no user option to remove. I finally found a solution here to comment line 1791 of wp-content/plugins/sexybookmarks/sexy-bookmarks.php.

    However, commenting only line No 1791 just gives you an "X" to close, and then only for 30 days! To get rid of it entirely I had to comment out both lines 1790 and 1791:

    What an irritating P.I.T.A, that I have to edit code to get rid of this crap! Makes me start thinking about switching to a different social plugin!

    Yes this is quite annoying and if you're like me and automatically have your cookies and cache cleared each time you close the browser, the annoying ad banner returns.

    If really it must be in there, how about putting it as an image on the Shareholic options page so it's out of the way and not irritating your users?

    Still, gotta love this plugin right?

    Thanks =)

    @pinkgarden @robnalexpress we're working on a better opt-out!

    ps. also, if you're using the Chrome extension, you will not see the bar at all, no matter what. Similar functionality coming soon for Firefox.

    This is new.

    For others with this issue, here's how I updated my theme to hide this eyesore.

    If you already have a CSS file that affects your admin dashboard, just add the following to that file.

    /* Remove shareaholic promo */
    #ext-promo-prompt {display:none !important;}

    If you do not, create a CSS file (I called mine remove_shrsb_promo.css). To make this file work in your admin dashboard add the following to your functions.php.

    function remove_shrsb_show_promo() {
    	if (is_admin()) {
    		wp_enqueue_style('remove-shrsb-promo', get_template_directory_uri().'/remove_shrsb_promo.css');
    add_action('set_current_user', 'remove_shrsb_show_promo');

    Hey guys,

    I see you now have the pop-up on just the plugin page. I do think that's a better idea then it spread across all admin pages =) Thanks for re-considering that.

    Still the best social sharing plugin out there in my opinion. And I have tried pretty much everything else that's available!
