Hi Alex

You can turn it off by adding a line of code to your site.php file which is in the root/config folder.

define('ENABLE_NEWSFLOW_OVERLAY', false);


There are other things you can do to using this method. See this How To for further info.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your speedy reply it works. Great

Also in previous versions we could define what users can control within dashboard. Now it seams that I can't locate that page. Is that function removed or I'm looking at a wrong place.

Thanks again

Hi Alex

You can still do all of that via Advanced Permissions.
Check this section out.

Thanks for your reply again. I don't now why but in some cases new versions are going backwards. There should be simple way super administrator to disable news, and access to different sections of dashboard. I had two cases now where client stuff up websites by playing and experimenting with dashboard items.

Al I say it is possible but it should be simpler.

Thanks for your replays again
