Custom WP admin dashboard (3 posts)

    I thought this would be fairly simple but haven't yet found a way of displaying a fixed custom admin dashboard page rather than the usual meta boxes.

    Sure I can remove/add custom meta boxes all day long. But I'd like to be able to display a fixed (non-meta-box based) welcome page on the dashboard, instead of the usual meta boxes?

    Apart from using custom redirect rules, anyone know of a way this can be achieved?

    The admin messages never go away.

    I'm trying to have something more like the WP admin about page (that displays after upgrade), as the default dashboard page.

    Basically, I want to swap out the meta boxes for a single page of html. Is more difficult than I thought!
