There are two quick ways to disable the sometimes annoying Admin notification in the Magento back end.
System > Configuration > Advanced > Advanced > Disable Modules Output simply set Mage_AdminNotification to “Disable”.
The previous method works fine but potentially, a user can re-enable these easily. To make the change a bit more difficult to undo, we can disable the module from the modules XML files. If we already have a custom module, we can simply add:
<Mage_AdminNotification> <active>false</active> </Mage_AdminNotification>
To our module XML file. A complete example could look like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <config> <modules> <MageBase_Custom> <active>true</active> <codePool>local</codePool> <depends> <Mage_Core /> <Mage_Cms /> </depends> </MageBase_Custom> <Mage_AdminNotification> <active>false</active> </Mage_AdminNotification> </modules> </config>
