Dashboard Message


Displays a custom message on the dashboard with full HTML/PHP/JavaScript support. Useful for administrator who have clients as users.

The plugin will display anything that’s in the message.php file in the plugin’s directory. Since the plugin uses a simple include,
any kind of content is supported.


  • The plugin in action


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload ‘plugin-name.php’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Put your message in the ‘message.php’ file in the plugin’s directory


Are there plans to make editing message.php easier?

Not yet, but if anyone asks for it, I’ll be glad to include that feature.
