Simple and effective! Just install and all the annoying dashboard notices get organized under a single button from the Admin Bar beside the “Screen Options”. So, why rating this plugin just with one star?Because WPFraternity copied ALL of the source code from Hide Admin Notices plugin by @pontetlabs without giving him the credits. That is unfair and, in my opinion, inappropriate.

We have tested all other plugins for this task – this is absolutely the best. With many others, the suppressed notices do appear for a second when you click around in the dashboard. This one is absolutely without any gaps – just perfect.
