Zen Dash

Disable dashboard widgets, menu items and update notifications. Declutter your dashboard with Feng Shui magic. Less is more.

How to I use this plugin?

Simply activate it, then head over to Dashboard - Zen Dash where an admin interface is waiting for you. Use the sliders to activate or deactivate an, then hit "Save Changes". You can also choose to enable or disable all widgets at once.

Can I still access removed Menu Items?

Yes. Zen Dash only hides them, but if you know the direct URL you can still call it. For example, to access the Dashboard, you can still navigate to yourdomain.com/wp-admin/index.php

Can I still update WordPress Core / Themes / Plugins with disabled notifications?

Yes indeed. Zen Dash only hides the notifications at the top, not the fact that an update is available. Simply head over to Dashboard - Updates and check if and when you want.

HELP! I've disabled the Dashboard Menu Item, and now I can't access Zen Dash options to bring it back!

You can access the Zen Dash options by hovering over the Admin Footer. Please do not disable both.

HELP! I've disabled BOTH the Dashboard menu AND the Zen Dash footer link...

You can still call the Zen Dash menu directly by appending "index.php?page=zendash" to your admin area. For example, if your URL in the admin area is "mydomain.com/wp-admin", head over to "mydomain.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=zendash". If that doesn't work for you, please disable and uninstall the plugin, then re-install it. This will reset all your options.
