Dashboard widgets

  • It is only relatively recently that I realised that the dashboard items were widgets.

    I wonder if there could be some way to advertise them as such? Maybe there could be an “add dashboard widget” functionality, comparable to the existing functionality for adding widgets to a sidebar?

    Alternatively, I wonder if new dashboard widgets should go to the top of a column so that they get noticed. After that, a user can do what he likes with them (assuming that he realises they can be moved).

  • That functionality does exist, but it’s handled via plugins (since that’s kinda what you’d want up there most of the time).

    Interesting that you mention this. I was thinking about tapping into the dashboard via Total Widget Control and allowing people to manage their dashboard widgets the same as the frontend widgets.

    If I see any more requests for this I’ll probably add it.
