  • Once again you produce quality stuff but once again you insist in plastering the admin area with your affiliate/ panels/ links/ donates etc.

    Accepted that the majority of people never donate to free plugins but please, my clients like to see a neat and tidy admin area.

    How can I remove the SEO dropdown you felt inclined to add to my client’s site?

  • That’s a good idea you have there, making the plugin freemium so that all affiliate and donate links can be removed for those users who have bought this right.

    In any case, which “SEO dropdown plastering the admin area” are you talking about? If you mean the admin area widgets either in the general WP admin dashboard or WP SEO settings pages, you can minimize them with a single click. Hover mouse on the title and an arrow appears on the right side. You can also order them around in both areas by dragging and dropping, so in WP SEO admin area you can for example minimize the unwanted ones and put them below all others. In the general admin area on top of the page on the right side just below the admin bar are Screen Options, from which you can hide widgets entirely.

    No. I’m talking about the SEO link embedded itself into the admin bar.

    Easiest way to remove is to put this in your theme functions file:

    function my_admin_head() {
        echo '<style>li#wp-admin-bar-wpseo-menu.menupop { display:none; visibility:hidden }</style>';
    add_action('admin_head', 'my_admin_head');

    Agreed, it would be nice to have an option to disable this one.

    For manual removal I’d recommend inserting the line into the end of theme’s style.css file instead. That saves CPU compared to invoking PHP to print the same line.
