How do I hide the Directory Getting Started Guide?


how do I hide the Directory Getting Started Guide from the WordPress dashboard?

I've installed the Pro version of the Admin Menu Editor Pro plugin ( which has allowed me to hide most of the settings except this. It doesn't appear as a normal menu item so the AMP plugin doesn't see it as a menu item, so I can't change permissions and hide it.

Is there a hack for this?

    Hello Peter,

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    The Getting started page is included in the plugin core and there is no option to disable it out of the box unless the setup steps are completed.

    You can modify the core files here : directory\core\admin.php around line 144 you will find

    	* Redirect to Getting started page on first load.

    That is the function which is loading the getting started page on the first load.

    I think that should get you sorted.

    Please advise.
