    How can i change the "site admin" link name (on sidebar) to say "Dashboard" instead?

    I'm also looking for a way to do this. I thought it might be in the: widgets.php file but I searched for "site admin" and couldn't find it. Please advise if you have figured this out!

    You mean, under Meta?

    I was able to test change it, by modifying the following:

    wp-includes/general-template.php, line 194

    Look for this paragraph

     * Display the Registration or Admin link.
     * Display a link which allows the user to navigate to the registration page if
     * not logged in and registration is enabled or to the dashboard if logged in.
     * @since 1.5.0
     * @uses apply_filters() Calls 'register' hook on register / admin link content.
     * @param string $before Text to output before the link (defaults to <li>).
     * @param string $after Text to output after the link (defaults to </li>).
    function wp_register( $before = '<li>', $after = '</li>' ) {
    	if ( ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
    		if ( get_option('users_can_register') )
    			$link = $before . '<a href="' . site_url('wp-login.php?action=register', 'login') . '">' . __('Register') . '</a>' . $after;
    			$link = '';
    	} else {
    		$link = $before . '<a href="' . admin_url() . '">' . __('Site Admin') . '</a>' . $after;
    	echo apply_filters('register', $link);

    change this line

    $link = $before . '<a href="' . admin_url() . '">' . __('Dashboard') . '</a>' . $after;

    I don't know how many other instances it will change, but it surely does change the link in the sidebar.
