Just trying out the Ultimate Branding (great work Barry !!!!) and found that:
1. There is no upgrading notification coming from WPMUDEV and the plugin is not listed under the WPMUDEV Updates screen. I guess this is the reason why there is a failure on the upgrading notification.
Instead, one can only find it under the "regular" plugins screen.
2. Even on the "regular" plugins screen, the link to the plugin's page takes us to 404 Page Not Found.
Ok. Now for the feature request to Barry.
I have also noticed, as others as well, that the welcome panel is not completely hidden. I know there are suggestions of hiding it all together.
I think though that we could have a different approach:
I believe that the instructions and links about "Basic Settings, Add Real Content, Customize Your Site", are really helpful. After all they only lead to internal links. Why throw them away?
Instead of hiding the Welcome panel, we could just brand it to our benefit. All we (of course that means you Barry) have to do is to give the ability to change the Wordpress image on the left and alter the text next to it.
We could simply customize those bits adding options for them under Branding/Images and Branding/Help. After all you have already done this with the login image and favicon as well as the contextual help panel. :slight_smile:
What do you think Barry?
Thank you for your time,
