    Hey, is there a way to get the feeds to not show up on the dashboard by default? I have multiple users that aren't extremely web savy and I need to minimize that area.

    If you are familiar with unregistering a dashboard widget you can do so, other wise use the screen option to disable any dashboard widget.

    How on earth do do this then?..I had never noticed the feed before and my users state it is incredibly distracting. Why and what version was this implemented? Great plugin otherwise.

    Keep track of my feeds. Like I said before, you can disable or remove the dashboard widget.

    So the reason it was implemented was to keep track of your feeds? The disabling the dashboard widget is over my head. All I see are links to some gal in Venice or something.

    Austin, many people have feeds or other promotional items bundled with their plugins, but it's a pretty common courtesy to include an off switch.

    I'm tempted to uninstall it myself, but I think I may just hunt through your code and turn off the offending widget, instead of trying to add even more code to counter act it (which seems to be what you're suggesting.)

    You've written a relatively stable and enjoyable plugin, it would be a shame if more users felt they had to drop it simply because it does something not included in the description (IE, adding advertising for your sites to the front of the backend for ALL users.)

    In any case, until you decide to make it more user friendly, I'm going to have to keep my rating relatively low. In the long run, I think you'll find having a more popular plugin will be better for promoting you as a developer than having some spam-like feed links forced through the dashboard.

    Love the plugin - does just what I want it to do.

    Only have a few issues with it - as above the shameless feeds within the admin functions and what seems to be an auto-hide function within the help components (not had time to look at that one, but it could just be my setup).

    For the others interested in a simple way of removing Austin's feeds, then edit the following file:
    /wp-content/plugins/custom-login/library/admin/admin.php

    Search for the function custom_login_create_settings_meta_boxes()

    Comment out (using a double slash eg: //) the meta boxes you don't want. In my case, "Announcements" and "TheFrosty Network".

    Version 0.8.8 it happens to be the 2nd and the last items.

    Keep up the good coding (from what I've seen it is VERY good), but dude, you gotta allow people to easily turn that stuff off.

    I don't know what you are trying to accomplish with this bizarre and unrelated dashboard widget but I don't want any part of it. I am uninstalling the "Custom Login" plugin, on the websites where I have been using it.

    Goodbye.

    Although plugin is nice Austin! I also can't stand unwanted commercials.

    Wipe following 2 lines in the file: custom-login.php to get rid of the unwanted "commercial" in your dashboard.
    Following code lines are responsible for it: 42/43

    if ( custom_login_get_setting( 'hide_dashboard' ) != true )
    require_once( CUSTOM_LOGIN_ADMIN . 'dashboard.php' );

    cheers

    @another-webmaster OR just set the dashboard widget to false in the settings and don't modify to core files when an update is available.

    @Austin
    You are absolutely right, great code shouldn't be touched!
    (They should close this topic or?)
