    Does anyone know how to add news feeds to the dashboard? I see them when I install certain plugins, similar to the WordPress News feed. I'd like to add a news feed, probably my website's RSS feed to my clients' dashboards. Does anyone know if there is a plugin for that? I tried searching but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks!

  2. It's complicated... and a highly kept secret ;)

    This page will help get you started... if you are ready for it!

    Sorry, what page? And I'm not a programmer, I design websites but I don't write php :(

  4. Oops... sorry. Here is the link:

    Honestly, if you have no programming experience... it might be "over your head".

    But... you never know ;)

    Thanks Josh, I'll check it out (probably won't dive in though, I don't have a clue about php coding!) but thank you for the link :)

  6. My pleasure. Let me know if I can offer any clarification along the way.

    Yea, that was quite interesting. Didn't understand a word of it, but looked cool!

    Anyway, I found a much easier way to add the RSS feed - I never knew I could change the existing WP news feed. So problem solved, you just Configure the wordpress blog feed to the URL you want to use. No coding required ;)

  8. Aha... the easy way out... I see ;)
