Dashboard Post-it

Description

Adds a simple ‘Post-it’ widget to the Dashboard that allows you to leave yourself or other authors a note. The plugin can be configured and moved around as any other Dashboard widget. It will accept plain text or (sanitized) HTML. Only users with the capability “Edit dashboard” can edit the note.

This simple plugin is based on code from WP Engineer and Ricardo González Castro. Leave your comments here.

Warning Your notes will be replaced by boilerplate text upon upgrading. Make sure to copy the content somewhere else before you upgrade and then paste it into the new version. Sorry about that!

FAQ

What about multiple instances?

Although it should be relatively easy to add support for multiple instances of this widget, I am not planning to add such functionality at this time. If you want to contribute some code, do contact me and I will consider extending the plugin.

Can you add feature X?

This plugin was developed as a solution to one problem. It can no doubt be extended, but probably not by me. I welcome other contributors.
