One new feature that was introduced in Vtiger 6.1 was an extension marketplace where 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 splendid 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 the 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.
Enable / Disable the hide action from the settings pane: Once the module is installed you can enable/disable the hidden feature from your settings pane.
Banner is hiding by default: Instead of removing all together the banner we have simulated the user clicks in the toggle button. This means that each time the user logs in the banner will be hidden and it can be easily restore from the same button.
If the users hit the arrow button, the banner will show up in the usual place
