Dashboard Widget Manager

Widget manager for the WordPress 2.5+ dashboard.

Version 1.3.1

  • Add compatiblity for WordPress 2.6.x by loading the widgets stylesheet. Sorry it took so long.

Version 1.3.0

  • Options page for setting defaults and permissions.
  • Allow non-admins to rearrage their dashboard as well as edit the widgets on their dashboard. Widget authors: see plugin source for details on making your widget editable by non-admins.
  • Custom text and RSS widgets until I get multi-instance widgets working (i.e. the default text and RSS widgets).
  • Added widget descriptions.
  • Lots of internal improvements.

Version 1.2.1

  • I screwed up on the per-user widget order. When one user saved, it'd erase the other users' orders.
  • Fixed bug that didn't allow for no widgets to be displayed on the dashboard. Thanks to Kimmono for pointing this out.

Version 1.2.0

  • Store dashboard widgets options on a per-user basis. Now you and all of your fellow administrators can have seperate widget options. Non-administrators will see the configuration of the last person to update. This how WordPress does it on it's own and I couldn't think of a better solution.

Version 1.1.0

  • Store dashboard widgets order on a per-user basis.
  • Make the sidebar widget count on the dashboard accurate (it was combining the sidebar and dashboard widget counts). Thanks to Bob for pointing this out.
  • Missed translation string.

Version 1.0.1

  • Accidental version bump when commiting a minor POST detection code improvement.

Version 1.0.0

  • Initial release.
