How to remove the “Welcome to your new website…” message on front page

How to remove the “Welcome to your new website…” message on front page in drupal when no content is promoted to the front page. I wanted to do so because I have views on the front page, but nothing else, and I found that not having content promoted to front page makes drupal display this message. We have to modify the archive modules>node.module, in line 1751:

“$output = ‘ ‘;
$num_rows = false < == change this to “true”
…and the default message will be gone for good but again, everytime you upgrade your core you need to edit this portion. This was of help:
