    I really like the new welcome panel. But what I want to know is will it have plugin support later on as I am creating a site for a customer and would like to alter the welcome panel to a custom version so it has information relevant to their site.

    The content isn’t alterable currently. Chances are you just want to end up with a dashboard widget or something. The Welcome panel is for welcoming brand-new users to a stock install of WordPress to have no other guidance — you will be providing guidance to your client.



    Can I jump into this discussion and ask if there is a way to automatically disable the New Install Welcome Box for new sites in a multisite install?

    I suppose it should be update_usermeta($user_id, ‘show_welcome_panel’, 0); but this does only seem to work on the primary site so I tried this but without any luck:

    $user_blogs = get_blogs_of_user($user_id);
    foreach ($user_blogs as $blog) {
                update_usermeta($user_id, 'show_welcome_panel', 0);

    Edit: should say that the above code is run on add_action(‘user_register’, “my_custom_user_settings”);
