We want to disable/remove the "Popular" feature from the dashboard [v5.9]

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Customising the Confluence Dashboard

We are using Confluence v5.9 and trying to remove the "Popular" feature from our dashboard.

We have followed previous documentation instructions to open the Dashboard Macros under Managing Add-ons. We marked to have this feature disabled but it remains. 

Any assistance on removing the "Popular" feature would be appreciated.

you could use this CSS in Confluence Administration > Stylesheet , to hide the Popular link in the sidebar. Then the Popular content can't be loaded either.

.wiki-content .aui-nav-item.nav-item-popular-stream {
  display: none;

Edit: previous answer was for pre 5.9 - doh!
