SO Dashboard Feed Widget

The SO Dashboard Feed Widget shows the latest Posts from a site of your choice in the top of the WordPress Dashboard.

On websites I develop for clients I always add this widget to their WordPress Dashboard to keep them informed on general updates regarding their websites. I thought it would be a handy tool for other developers, so I turned my widget into a plugin.

The default settings are:

  • the standard title of the widget box is "Recent Updates"
  • as I needed a default feed URL I used the feed of WP TIPS, one of my own websites
  • the default number of RSS items is 3
  • yellow background color of the widget (#FFFF99)

The plugin comes localized for use on sites other than the English language and/or on bi/multilingual websites. In the languages folder you will find the .po and .mo files. Feel free to send me translations in other languages, I will then add them to this folder and of course I will credit you here.

Current translations:

  • Dutch (by myself)

I have decided to only support this plugin through Github. Therefore, if you have any questions, need help and/or want to make a feature request, please open an issue over at Github. You can also browse through open and closed issues to find what you are looking for and perhaps even help others.

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ISSUES VIA THE WORDPRESS FORUMS BUT ON GITHUB INSTEAD

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
