How to disable the welcome panel in the WordPress dashboard

To disable the Welcome panel in the dashboard in WordPress, you can use the wp_welcome_panel action hook in your theme’s functions.php file. This hook allows you to customize or remove the Welcome panel that appears on the dashboard when a user logs in for the first time.

Here’s an example of how you can use this hook to disable the Welcome panel in the dashboard:

// Disable the welcome panel in the WordPress dashboard
// More snippets at wpunplugged.com 

add_action( 'wp_welcome_panel', 'remove_welcome_panel' );
function remove_welcome_panel() {
    // Remove the Welcome panel from the dashboard
    remove_action( 'welcome_panel', 'wp_welcome_panel' );
}

This code will completely remove the Welcome panel from the dashboard, so it will no longer appear for any users. If you want to customize the Welcome panel instead of disabling it, you can use the wp_welcome_panel action hook to add your own content or display a different message.

Keep in mind that the Welcome panel is not the only element of the dashboard that can be customized or disabled. If you want to further customize the appearance or functionality of the dashboard, you can use a variety of hooks and filters that are available in WordPress.
