New messages will be displayed at the top of your website's control panel.

and Joomla! CMS Release News(on the right).

You may choose to either:

  • take action (after which case the message will disappear), or
  • take no action.

If no action is taken then you may hide the messages from view.

Select the HIDE THIS MESSAGE button to remove any one message from the welcome screen of your website's control panel.

To review hidden messages:
