Multisite Dashboard Feed Widget

Shows the latest Posts from the main site of a multisite install in the top of the Dashboard of the sites hanging under the multisite install.

With the arrival of WordPress version 3.1.2 all of a sudden the Dashboard Feed on Multisite had disappeared. A few others noticed this too, but nobody had any solutions. That is the reason why I made this plugin. By default it shows the titles (and links to) the 3 latest Posts of the Main Site (blog_id=1) in a box with a yellow background which shows as the first available widget in the dashboard of all sites hanging under the Multisite.

As this is my first plugin, I have not yet included an options page. Actually there are not that many variables anyway. But making options available is on the TO-DO list.

The default settings are:
- the plugin automatically takes the RSS Feed of the main site in the WordPress Multisite install (blog_id=1) - the default number of RSS items is 3
- the standard title of the widget box is "Recent Updates"

The plugin comes localized for use on sites other than the English language and/or on bi/multilingual websites. In the languages folder you will find the .po, .pot and .mo files. For now there is only one line, but when I get around to do the options page, that will of course become more.
