Adds a new dashboard widget to your WordPress Admin Dashboard that pulls in items of the News Planet for the Genesis Framework and its ecosystem.
This small and lightweight plugin adds a new dashboard widget to your WordPress Admin Dashboard that pulls in the some recent (worldwide) news about the Genesis Theme Framework and its community/ecosystem. You can configure how many items are displayed (between 3 and 20 items). Only the headlines of the various blog posts will be shown.
The news items come from a custom news planet source combined of different Genesis related sources around the world. Currently we have mostly English-language sources though :) Just be informed about Genesis. Know what's going on in the community, and the ecosystem - new child theme releases, extension plugins, tutorials, code snippets... Enjoy :)
Since version 1.5.0 of the plugin you can customize the widget title, URL of feed source as well as the footer line to your liking via the new filters. This comes in really handy for branding/ customizing the dashboard, for clients or other purposes... See the FAQ section here for more info on that.()
Please note: The plugin DOESN'T require the use of the Genesis Framework but I recommend to use it anyway :-).
genesis-dashboard-news.pot) for translators is also always included :)
