Hide Admin Notices


New & improved!

Have you become tired of the clutter of Admin Notices that appear at the top of every page in your WordPress Dashboard?

With each new plugin or theme that you install, there seem to be more and more notices that appear at the top of each page!

With this simple plugin, you can claim back all this wasted screen space so that you can focus on what is important – creating your content.

Hide Admin Notices hides away all Notices, Messages, and Update Nags, and makes it easy for you to see them again when you want.


After activating the plugin, you will have a new Show Notices button at the top right-hand corner of your admin pages – just next to Screen Options.

Click the button to reveal all hidden notices, then simply click the button again to hide them.

Simply click the Hide Notices button in the top right-hand corner on the screen.

I have no Show Notices button

Don’t worry — this is normal behaviour. The Show Notices button appears only when there are hidden notices, thus if you can’t see this button, there are no notices that have been hidden.

If, however, there are notices you think should have been hidden and there is no button, please write a message in the WordPress Support Forum.

What configuration is there with this plugin?

None. Simply install, activate and enjoy!

There is a feature I want!

Great! Please write a message in the WordPress Support Forum.

Woocommerce has set an administrator notification on all pages that says that the menu item has been moved to me and I click the button below to complete the process, which does not happen, the notice does not disappear, the setting does not take place. I can’t hide this notification with Hide admin notice… by editing the PHP code… by editing the CSS code… and Wordpress doesn’t see the error… so I have to wait 30 seconds after every page load for the empty admin notice to load 😀 Awesome

So far, the best plugin of its kind. I’ve tried several others that promise a lot, but don’t work quite right (most don’t block ALL notifications). This one does. It’s effective and simple.

Nowadays, everybody thinks their plugin deserves an admin notice publicity spot. Indeed they do, folks are offering free tools and everybody has to put food on their tables. That said, depending on how many plugins we have installed, we can have 4, 5 or more notices polluting the dashboard making for a terrible user experience. Some of them reach like 400px height. It’s a mess. The solution offered by PontetLabs is so good that I think it should be incorporated into the WordPress core. Very well done, thanks a lot!!
