[Resolved] How can I get rid of the Jetpack ad on my dashboard?

  • After I installed WordPress, I didn’t activate Jetpack because I wasn’t sure if I needed any of the features. I’m now wondering, is activating Jetpack the only way to get rid of the Jetpack advertisement at the top of my WordPress dashboard? If not, how can I get rid of the ad? I’m tired of seeing, “Jetpack is installed and ready to bring awesome, WordPress.com cloud-powered features to your site.”

    Or am I the only one who doesn’t use Jetpack?

    Lastly, if I activate Jetpack, will the space at the top of the dashboard immediately be filled with a different ad?

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Navigate to Plugins -> JetPack -> Delete.

    The ad is gone.

    Thanks.

    Go into the “edit” option on the Jetpack plugin.

    find the text that says

    function admin_connect_notice() {
    		// Don't show the connect notice on the jetpack settings page. @todo: must be a better way?
    		if ( false !== strpos( $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'], 'page=jetpack' ) )
    		return;

    put the text “return;” just like the below:

    function admin_connect_notice() {
    		// Don't show the connect notice on the jetpack settings page. @todo: must be a better way?
    		return;
    		if ( false !== strpos( $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'], 'page=jetpack' ) )
    		return;

    Then save the file. Enjoy!

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Those are notices, not advertisements. Once you install Jetpack, it is only prompting you to finish setting it up, since, unlike other plugins, there area few steps required to get Jetpack operational.

    Once you install and authorize Jetpack, it will act like any other plugin — you won’t see any other notices. It will perform its function in the background.

    Thanks,

    Tim
