Support » Plugins » an alternative to the stock dashboard

  • This isn’t really much of a hack and it definitely isn’t a plugin. I modified the Dashboard page so that it is more to my liking.

    I went for a stripped down presentation of the information that I wanted to see the most:

    • a div box with a bulleted list of drafts
    • another div box with the Latest Activity information that was previously releagted to the side bar
    • a final div box that list the blog stats

    Clean and simple, with a logical division of information. For anybody that would like to try it for themselves, the file to modify is /wp-admin/index.php. I have made a .txt copy available here:
    http://www.bturnip.com/weblog/admin_index.php.txt

    Back up your own copy of /wp-admin/index.php, drop in my admin_index.php.txt, rename it to index.php and you should be ready to go.

    Nothing fancy here, just some code re-arrangement. Comments and suggestion welcome.
