OptionTree
Great Plugin - Way to have as a Dashboard widget? (2 posts)

    So nice to have a plugin that actually works this smoothly.

    That said, is there a way to have the OptionTree interface open as a widget in the dashboard? I'm using this to make client updating of some content easy, and it would make sense to just have it open immediately on the dashboard without having to see the admin side of it essentially.

    I agree.

    How hard would it be to add an option in the settings to choose the location for the theme options link?

    Perhaps a radio button for default administration areas to add a submenu with a drop-down list of each section (Dashboard, Appearance, Tools, etc)

    A second radio button will allow a new menu to be created with a text input for the name of the new panel and maybe a dropdown for a display icon?

    You could also create a folder for the icon as well. That would allow easily adding custom icons for the new menu (and perhaps the left menu in the actualy theme options!) And simply populate the dropdown with the list of icons in the folder.

    The only issue I could see is if PHP isn't able to read the directory for whatever reason.
