Support » Plugin: WP Admin Todo List » Great functionality, but not usable for me.

  • The drag and drop functionality is great for re-ordering your to-do list. However, I don’t like that the To Do list is always visible in the admin, following you in sections (Widgets / Plugins ..) where it’s just in the way. I understand the list can be rolled up, but it’s still visible and introduces clutter, which had the unintended consequence of pushing the list into my “ignore” zone. It would be preferable to me (perhaps an option?) to have the list only visible as a Dashboard widget. So 4 stars as it works as advertised, though not optimally for my use case.

    Dear wpdomains,

    Thank you that you liked drag and drop functionality.

    I think you missed something. You want that plugin should have hide and show functionality, then it’s already built-in dear.

    You should take a look at screenshot no 4 (Button in admin bar, to show/hide todo section (Without reload)).
    If you click “Todo” in admin bar, it will toggle todo block.

    Thus this is not working as advertisement. It was made with pure love, to help people.

    It would be nice if you revert 4 start to 5 stars.

    Thank you.

    Yes, I did see that in the menu bar, but I much prefer the plugin to “show” automatically when its needed and get out of the way when it’s not (automatically, as in no user intervention needed). I’ve already coded the solution as an add-on to your plugin – everyone has different needs, my critique expressed mine.

    May I know how plugin will know that user want it ? And then it shows.
    I want to implement in next release.

    It’s just a simple hack I added to functions.php, not sure if it’ll be suitable for a published plugin but here it is:

    function hide_wpadmintodo() {
    global $pagenow;
       if( $pagenow != 'index.php' ) {
            echo '<style type="text/css">
                       .sm_at_div_wrapper {visibility:hidden}
         } else {
         		echo '<style type="text/css"> .sm_at_div_wrapper  {width: 500px !important;} </style>';
    add_action('admin_head', 'hide_wpadmintodo');

    500px in the else statement is just my preferred width for the todo container.
