Playing with Dashboard

  • I just downloaded the latest nightly and have it all working. Very nice I must say. Thank you very much to the developers 🙂
    One question: This new dashboard inclusion – the dev blog – can that be tinkered with at all by the end user? In fact – where is the dashboard code anyway?

  • wp-admin/index.php
    And no one is going stop anyone from tinkering with anything. Just make appropriate backups. You know, to protect yourself.

    Thanks Kafkaesqui:)
    I have been playing around with it and discovered you can add whatever feed you want to have in your dashboard. That’s handy.
    This could be a lot of fun me thinks 🙂

    Wow, I like that idea. Do I have to alter the dashboard’s php file to archieve that? Or is there a web interface to just add and it’ll display nicely?

    Yes you just have to alter the index file in your admin – but it is a simple process.
    It’s all around line 90
    Have fun 🙂

    Worked perfectly in my test blog but when I tried it in my regular blog, I got:
    Warning: main(./wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/… …/mindofmog.net/wp-content/plugins/index.php on line 3
    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘./wp-blog-header.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /…/mindofmog.net/wp-content/plugins/index.php on line 3

    mog: Why is there an index.php in your plugins directory, and why does it need to call wp-blog-header.php?

    Thinking, I have no idea. Might have double clicked in Transmit, have done that before and unintentionally uploaded files. Anyway I took it out and it now works.

    That’s real nifty. I *assume* that, at some point, this setting will be moved into the database, right?

    Also, does anyone know if the feed is cached? I just took a quick peek at the code, enough to see that Magpie is used, but not enough to see if it’s cached.
