SambaPOS News tab

Is there a way to prevent the SambaPos news tab from loading when you first log in to the manage screen?

The reason I ask this is because i cannot do anything until the tab loads and even then all it does is flash up full size for a split second on load and then reduces to a tiny red square.

From what I can tell the tab is literally just a html window which loads the index page.

If there isn’t an option at the moment would it be possible to add a tick box on the general settings to choose if this tab loads on start or not.

That tab drives me nuts. I don’t want it. It delays the first load of the Management section. There should be a way to turn it off.

I edited this file:


I added this line to that file:

Just know this: you will not be able to access at all after that, until you remove the line.

It still loads the Tab, but it is quick, because you get this…
