Hi Jules, Thanks for making a plugin to suppress all the latest and greatest WP nags 😉 Only one gotcha, The options menu in the "three dots" menu upper right is not showing anymore. Luckily it isn't needed often, but this can become a problem for people who want to switch on advanced panles like, Custom fields. Probably it uses the same CSS class as the dreaded welcome message which makes it hard to fix. Maybe worth to put a note the on the plugin. Bart
