[resolved] I love this idea (3 posts)

    I love this idea for a plugin, but it seems you need a few more variables so that the text isn't overwritten when you do an upgrade, right?

    Hi Cathy, I'm the author. As the description states, this isn't so much a plugin (with admin interface and ability to save to the WP database) as a few lines of code to call a function to display content on the dashboard that has been hard-coded into the file (though you could change that very easily to use content from an include file instead if you wanted...)
    I have written a full featured version (several hundred lines of code instead of just a few) which includes an admin interface and saves the content to the WP database, but I have to test under 3.2 before releasing. Check back in a few weeks.

    Ok so I installed it and I activated it. But I don't see anyplace where I can configure it. I can see it on the dashboard home page too, I just can't figure out how to edit it.
