  • I am using WP as a site CMS, i would like to add a custom look to the dashboard by adding a logo, colors and control what users (non-admin) see on the dashboard – eg limit them to only seeing ‘Write a Post’ and the recent posts blocks

    I was wondering the same thing. Has anyone figured this out yet?

    I’m not a PHP expert but to insert it into the Dashboard, open the admin-header.php (under wordpress/wp-admin) and edit the code:

    <body class="wp-admin <?php echo apply_filters( 'admin_body_class', '' ); ?>">
    <div id="wpwrap">
    <div id="wpcontent">
    <div id="wphead">
    <!-- Insert custom code here -->
    <h1><?php if ( '' == get_bloginfo('name', 'display') ) echo '&nbsp;'; else echo get_bloginfo('name', 'display'); ?><span id="viewsite"><a href="<?php echo trailingslashit( get_option('home') ); ?>"><?php _e('Visit Site') ?></a></span></h1>

    You can use that to add a logo above the header with the name of your site below it. Hope this helps.. any questions please feel free to message me. =)

    I want to insert a logo in a sidebar. I have 2 sidebars and want to insert the logo in sidebar 2 so it sits with information about me and my company. How do I do that?
