Vtiger: Hide Banners in Dashboard

One new feature that was introduce in Vtiger 6.1 was an extension marketplacewhere developers publish paid and free extension for the Open Source users to buy them. As you might have notice, since 6. each time you login into you CRM you will see a banner of one the published extensions.

Being an extension publisher myself. I’ve seen one of my extension banners being publish in the homepage of many Vtiger installations. Even if I still think this a really good way to market Vtiger extensions, many of VGS’s customers keep asking to remove the banner from their home page.
VGS Vtiger Hide Banners in Dashboard Module

Instead of removing links in database, hack with Smarty templates, etc. We have created a simple extension module to avoid doing the same task over and over with the customers that request this feature.

Once installed, this vtiger module will automatically hide the Vtiger Extension Banner from your CRM dashboard. You can still enable the banner is choose so by clicking the down arrow in your home dashboard

This new module is 100% module manager compatible. This means that you don’t need to hacked around your VT installation. Because we have seen this appear repeatedly in vtiger’s forums and in the developers mailing list we have made this module freely available. 100% open source for everyone to use it.
