    How does one disable the dashboard? Allthough it is a very useful feature, it seems that every other time I log in it hangs on that page waiting for information from this website. It tends to get rather annoying 🙁

    Install this plugin:

    And disable the FEEDS, that will make it load faster.

    The other hack is to just re-direct to /wp-admin/post.php instead of /wp-admin/index.php from /wp-login.php.




    Thanks, will give this a try.

    Here’s another way to get rid of the dashboard completely:

    go to your wp-admin directory, and edit “menu.php”

    Comment out the line that is:

    $menu[0] = array(__(‘Dashboard’), 0, ‘index.php’);

    –this has worked for me, so far.

    The problem with this approach is that some plugins (WP-Shortstat comes to mind) add themselves under the Dashboard tab.

    So if you completley disable the Dashboard tab, then you won’t be able to see this plugins information.

    I would venture that my solution of redirecting to post.php instead of index.php is better and still leaves the Dashboard on the menu tab if you need to go there for some reason.
