In 13.2, how can we remove the Latest News area? One of your KB items makes reference to there being a registry key to modify, but I cannot locate any further information.

This article applies to PRTG 13.x.3 until PRTG 17.4.34. It cannot be used in versions as of 17.4.35 anymore.

Remove Newsfeed from PRTG Web Interface

In order to remove the RSS newsfeed from the PRTG web interface you can add a custom CSS to PRTG which will hide it.

Find your PRTG program folder and go to the webroot\css sub folder.

Edit the file styles_mini_custom.css and add the following line to it:

#newsfeed {display:none!important;}

as of version 15.4.21 the necessary line instead is:

.newsfeed {display:none!important;}

You may need to use Ctrl+F5 in your browser to force it to fully reload in order to see the effect.

This appears to have stopped working as of version 15.4.21.5216. The news feed suddenly re-appeared just after installing this update. Can you confirm?

Just to check, are you referring to the web-Interface of PRTG, or the Enterprise Console?

Is this process still the same? We're running the new UI released in 17.3.5.

Thanks!

piqle, thank you for the KB-Post. I'm very much afraid this is not possible anymore as of version 17.4.35.

What's the current process to remove the blog/news from PRTG now? I really don't want this column cluttering up my front page.

For the Login page: Edit "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\css\prtgmini.css" and add:

.newsfeed {display:none!important; visibility: hidden; }

For the Welcome page: Edit "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\css\styles_custom.css" and add:

.newsfeed {display:none!important; visibility: hidden; }

Because you are running PRTG 17.4.35 including its Facelift, you'll also need to edit the file "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\css\styles_custom_v2.css" and add:

.newsfeed {display:none!important; visibility: hidden; }

Hi there,

Have you restarted the Core Server Service to free the cache of CSS files? If not, then please restart the Core Server Service and check if the newsfeed is gone afterwards.

Best regards.
