How To Disable Admin Notices in WordPress Dashboard?

Admin notices are messages that appear in the WordPress admin panel to inform users of important updates or issues. While these notifications can be helpful, they can also be distracting and overwhelming, especially if you have multiple plugins installed. In this article, we will discuss two methods to disable admin notices in WordPress Dashboard for a better user experience.

Disable Admin Notice via Code

To disable admin notices in WordPress Dashboard via code, you'll need to add a few lines of code to your functions.php file. 

In your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Theme Editor.

On the right side of the page, you'll see a list of files. Find and click on the file labeled functions.php.

Scroll down to the bottom of the functions.php file and paste the following code:

function hide_all_admin_notices() {
    global $wp_filter;

    // Check if the WP_Admin_Bar exists, as it's not available on all admin pages.
    if (isset($wp_filter['admin_notices'])) {
        // Remove all actions hooked to the 'admin_notices' hook.

add_action('admin_init', 'hide_all_admin_notices');

Click the Update File button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.
