Remove the Welcome Message(SOLVED)

Permalink
Hello

Maybe this question was made many times but I can not find a way to remove the welcome message in 5.7. I just want to be able to remove the welcome message because some times take ages to login if the internet connect it's not very fast. And in countries where the access to YouTube it's controlled, the login process it's very slow until the appearance of the Concrete5 intro movie.

Thank you very much for the help.
Best regards.

Ah yeah, I wrote about this lately http://www.adrikodde.nl/blog/2014/concrete-57-disable-news-overlay/...

Basically you add this to /application/config/concrete.php

<?php
return array(
   'external' => array(
      'news_overlay' => false,
      // if you want to hide news from intelligent search:
      'news' => false,
   ),
);

Worked perfectly, thank you very much.

I added your code to:

/application/config/generated_overrides/concrete.php

I hope in future one easy option to enable or disable this.

This for some reason is not working for me. I am using version 5.7.4.2 right now and I will try it later on earlier versions of 5.7 but do you know what to do to stop this in 5.7.4.2? I also want to disable the background image for the login page. Thanks.

Hi
Where can I find the instructions - having the same issues? Will I need to enclose the code above in the config/generated_overrides/concrete.php file?

Hi,

Is it possible to hide the notifications on the dashboard?

Kind regards,
Henco

OK, So I have just been living with the overlay screen because everything i try fails. I tried every code combination possible in the generated_overrides/config.php file and also tried to put a config.php file with the exact code in the application/config directory and I still get the pverlay when I try to log in. I have cleared the cache and tried everything I can think of. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks:-)

This is the exact code that appears in my generated_overrides/config.php file
<?php
/**
 * -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 * Generated 2016-02-10T03:32:54-06:00
 *
 * DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE DIRECTLY
 *
 * @item      editor.plugins.selected
 * @group     concrete
 * @namespace null
 * -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 */
return array(
    'site' => '5756 Testing',
    'version_installed' => '5.7.5.6',


What exactly am I supposed to change it to?
Thanks:-)

There is also a tutorial covering this.

"How to change the marketplace and news settings in 5.7"

In concrete.php I have everything on "false", the youtube welcome overflow is still there :-(
/**
    * ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * Getting external news and help from concrete5.org
    * ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    */
    'external' => array(
        // Provide help within the intelligent search
        // - this displays the Help section results when you search for a topic
        // - default is true
        'intelligent_search_help' => true,
        // Display an overlay with up-to-date news from concrete5
        // - this displays the overlay popup (includes concrete5 related, add-on, and theme promotion)
        // - default is true
        'news_overlay' => false,
        // Enable concrete5 news within your site


and

'external' => array(
      'news_overlay' => false,
      // if you want to hide news from intelligent search:
      'news' => false,

Are you following the tutorial instructions?

The code you posted is not from the tutorial. Are you using an opening php tag and returning the array?
