Would it be possible in future version of WordPress to include a hook on the dashboard either before or after the welcome message, so that we can create our own welcome messages, or useful information for clients who we use wordpress for. At the moment we are using dashboard widgets for this, but it doesn't give as much freedom over the design.
I've done it to my own WordPress test site, but obviously I had to edit a core file (which was ok for my test site, because well its a test site), but no-body should edit core files on live sites. EVER!
Just something simple so we can do:
add_action( 'admin_welcome_before', 'custom_function_to_call' );
:) Thanks for making the most awesome CMS ever!
