How to remove the Promo Box in Plesk Service Provider View

A few years ago, when Plesk started supporting Extensions, I gave a talk together with Any Kugaevskiy from at Parallels Summit in New Orleans. My part was about how to get started with Plesk Extensions in general.

As a demo project, I removed the big blue promo box in Plesk Service Provider View – and only last week I remember that I’ve never made that project public. It’s about time I thought, and quickly created a GitHub repo to share it with the world.

But then I thought, I best make a video to show people how to use this thing – so here it is. In the above screencast I’ll show you how to install the extension in Plesk Onyx 17.2 and how it looks with and without it. You can download the Extension here:

  • https://github.com/versluis/plesk-promo-box-remover

All you need is the ZIP file that’s part of the repo. Upload it to your Plesk Server (under Extensions – My Extensions), then enable it and enjoy an promo free home screen experience.

If you want to try your hand at writing your own Plesk extension, have a look at my article from 2014 (as mentioned in the video):
