Sorry to rehash... Dashboard install message

A client used to have "WordPress PopUp" installed (I am not sure if this is the same as PopUp Pro, however, Wordpress PopUp was not a choice). It has been deactivated and deleted. However, the message to install the Dashboard plugin still remains displayed in the dashboard. "Easily get updates, support, and one-click WPMU DEV plugin/theme installations right from in your dashboard - install the free WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin."

If any MPMU DEV plugin was installed, I would add the dashboard plugin. However, nothing is installed at this point.

I even added the line:
define('WPMUDEV_HIDE_BRANDING', true);
to the config.php file and the message still is displayed.

Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hello Paul,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    I think the "WordPress PopUp" plugin you're referring to had been this one:

    It is a "lite" (free) version of our PopUp Pro. The message/banner in your dashboard may have been caused by it. However in case that plugin has been removed from site and also the WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin is not installed, it is highly probable that there's another plugin of ours still active.

    I'd say that if you're sure that you're not using any of our plugins available from this repository, it may be another "Lite"/"Free" version.

    That being said, if you could provide me with a list of your plugins (except those that are obviously not ours, e.g. W3 Total Cache, Akismet etc) I may be able to identify this.

    Alternatively, you may want to use this CSS code:

    .wpmu-message {display:none;}

    You may add this to your dashboard via Admin CSS plugin.

    Best regards,

    All of the installed plugins have authors other than WPMUDEV, so I think it is safe to assume that nothing else is installed from here.
