[resolved] How to hide dashboard widget? (4 posts)

    First I want to say, thanks for building this awesome plugin!

    It works very well for me except there is one issue I have. The plugin creates a dashboard widget that is title "News and Updates by Synved".

    Is there a way to disable it?

    Nevermind! Figured it out. According to the Dashboard Widgets API, you'll need to create a function to remove the meta box:

    // Create the function to use in the action hook
    function example_remove_dashboard_widget() {
     	remove_meta_box( 'synved_connect_dashboard_widget', 'dashboard', 'normal' );
    // Hook into the 'wp_dashboard_setup' action to register our function
    add_action('wp_dashboard_setup', 'example_remove_dashboard_widget' );

    You don't need custom code to hide dashboard widgets, you can do so by pulling down the "Screen Options" menu (at the top).
