This plugin does two things to your dashboard:
- The WordPress News and Other WordPress News sections are removed. You don’t even load them. Why? So you won’t have to bother
with the AJAX call for the news. Also, it looks neater.
- The sidebar (with incoming links, recent posts, etc.) is made more horizontal, with four columns instead of the default one.
This makes it so you can see all the information at one glance, rather than having to scroll down.
- What if we miss an update because the news is not there anymore?
No worry. If you’re on WordPress 2.3 or above, then update checking is already in WordPress and a separate notification will
be given to you.
