Exactly what I was looking for and it works perfectlyI don’t understand why web developers have to create all these annoying pop-ups. And why they don’t go away especially when you login to a site and close the pop-up right away!

Thank you ever so much for this little plugin. Probably most WP users would like to install it, immediately, if only they knew it exists.

Thanks for killing off the perpetually annoying “Welcome to the Block Editor” message, which has been welcoming me to the Block Editor every time I log in for years. It’s also helpful to have the full dashboard interface when in edit mode!

I have been waiting and waiting for WP to add a way to disable this message. It WAS soooo annoying! Thanks so much!
