Improved WordPress Dashboard Plugin
WordPress bloggers may be happy to learn about a new plugin called myDashboard, which actually makes the Dashboard tab useful.
myDashboard is based on the "start page" look that is used by iGoogle and Netvibes so it organizes important blog information into "gadgets". These gadgets display things like your blog's latest comments, latest posts, blog statistics, and incoming links all on one page.
You can easily reorder these gadgets by simply dragging-and-dropping them, and you can easily create your own gadgets if you aren't satisfied with the ones that are pre-packaged.
myDashboard looks to be a major improvement to the default dashboard page, giving you quick insight into what's happening on your blog.
