Remove WordPress News on Dashboard

Hello I would like to know, where can I remove the Wordpress News Box on user Dashboard.

Right now when someone registers on my site, they get this screen with the Wordpres snews box, this is not adding any value, and I would like to hide for a better personalisation.

Best regards

Hello there,

Thank you for asking.

Try to add the following function into the child theme’s functions.php file.

function sydney_child_remove_dashboard_meta() {
        remove_meta_box( 'dashboard_primary', 'dashboard', 'normal' );
add_action( 'admin_init', 'sydney_child_remove_dashboard_meta' );


thank you so much for your quick answer,

I does remove it form the admins view,

But not for users view, any clue?

Warm regards

Hello there,

Could you please create a temporary user account for me so I can have a deeper inspection? You can send the login credentials to my email kharisblank at gmail dotcom.
