Disable the random help hints

I was wondering if there was a flag somewhere to disable the help hints that are shown to users everyone once in a while?

thanks,
Brian

You could manually disable them all in the database: set 'active' to 0 on everything in the 'notices' table. Or you can set 'notice_frequency' to 0 in the 'features.php' file. But can I ask why you want to? They are there to help people learn the system, they don't show up any more once you dismiss them, and there aren't a ton.

Hi Greg,

For our initial rollout, we are doing a really basic monthly membership program and so much of the functionality is actually confusing initially to the users because of our existing site. As we convert the leagues over from the existing site, then the plan is to turn them back on.

Thanks!

Makes sense. I'd disable things you don't want to see with the "active" flag in the database, and then you can selectively re-enable them as you see fit.
