[Update]: To see how to hide all of the WP Engine “extras” in the dashboard, please see this tip.
Suppose your hosting is powered by WP Engine (like this site is), and you want to remove the “WP Engine Quick Links” menu from the Dashboard. While most people won’t need to do this, there are some who either need to or want to.
Just drop the following code into the functions.php file of your theme, and you’ll be good to go. I would recommend renaming the function, to ensure there’s not a naming conflict.
