Modifying the dashboard

  • Hi folks.
    I am trying to write a plugin that modifies the dashboard for most users.
    I will be the only administrator of a website; I don’t want other users (neither editors) to see the wordpress-related infos; I’d rather show them my advices on posting, editing practices, etc. So, the thing is, I must prevent wp from showing the actual content of the dashboard and substitute it with my content. Which hook should I use? A small example (just a couple of lines) would be very helpful.
    Thanks in advance,
    Davide

  • Um. Easiest thing to do is just rip all the stupid self-aggrandizing wp crap out of it entirely.

    [In other words, why bother writing a plugin? And you could also search for “minimal admin”, etc. – there’s some articles in the codex and also some plugins already made if you really want one.]

    I hope this isn’t obvious, but there’s a list of hooks here:

    Just explore the code and see what you can do — but you should be able to remove the code from WordPress admin files manually.
