Update: This method no longer works due to changes in Salesforce Home Page Components.
Holy cow I’m actually alive, although I can’t say the same for my blog. I finally decided to put something up here on the blog again to help a fellow force.com user. This code can be applied to your home page via an HTML home page component to remove the Chatter feed at the top of the page.
Note Don’t forget to hit “show html” before pasting the code into the component.
Once you’ve created the component add it onto the home page layout and it’ll hide the content. The only downside I see so far is it created an additional section in the home page. If you already have an existing HTML component you can just paste this code into it to hide this additional section.
Hopefully I’ll be able to turn this post into a momentum and start posting some more. I’ll refine this post some more later tonight with some images and steps and possibly a non jQuery solution for anyone still living in the dark ages.
