This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Latest Published Updates


Add a simple dashboard widget that provides a synposis of the latest public updates to the site. Only visible to users with “edit_published_posts” capabilities (notably editors and admins).

It includes the title of the item (if the post type supports title), the post type, a link to edit the item, an indication of how long ago the change was made, the author that made the change, and a link to compare it to the previous revision (if revisions are supported).

Forthcoming 1.0 release will allow you to choose how many items to show (currently hardcoded to 10) and be localization ready.
