Remove “Install WPMU DEV Dashboard” nag screen

Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 16.07.46

If you don’t want to use the WPMU DEV dashboard plugin, you have to tolerate their nag screen. This nag screen, present in most WPMU DEV plugins will also make intermittent external calls to check for updates.

To get rid of it once and for all, create a file called no-wpmudev-nag.php in /wp-content/mu-plugins (Create the folder if it does not exist.)

Then, paste the following code into the file:

<?php
/**
 * Plugin Name: Disable WPMU DEV Nag
 * Description: Disables WPMU DEV nagging
 * Version: 1.0
 * Author: khromov
 */

if ( !class_exists('WPMUDEV_Dashboard_Notice3') ) {
  /**
   * Dummy class
   *
   * Class WPMUDEV_Dashboard_Notice3
   */
  class WPMUDEV_Dashboard_Notice3 {
    public function __call($name, $arguments) { return null; }
    public static function __callStatic($name, $arguments) { return null; }
  }
}

Enjoy your nag-free experience!

      You need to use the plugin in this blog post to remove the nag screen.

      That works until you update one of the plugins, then the nags return. The approach described in this thread is a permanent solution.

    Understand …. but how to remove the origin of that nag installation ? I can’t believe this is forever ! I mean, where’s the origin of this issue ?

      The permanent, guaranteed-to-work solution is to simply not use WPMUDev plugins. :-)
