  • Thanks for this tip. Now, I can hide unwanted theme info. from dashboard.

    • Well you can always hide anything from dashboard by adding css that will hide info, however what is it you are looking at removing ?

  • I’ve tried to add it to my functions.php theme but it’s not working, it’s still displaying theme infos.

    Seeing it’s now the ‘At A Glance’ widget, I just found doing a simple CSS addition the WP-Admin Styles targetting:
    wp-version-message { display: none; }
    Works well.
