Disable the welcome panel in the Dashboard

The welcome_panel hook is available for WordPress 3.5+. You can use this hook to remove the welcome panel from the dashboard, as well as remove the corresponding screen option. It can be useful if you are managing sites for clients and wish to hide things from them. Just add this snippet to the functions.php file of your WordPress theme.

remove_action( 'welcome_panel', 'wp_welcome_panel' );
