Add custom widgets to WordPress dashboard

function example_dashboard_widget_function() { // Display whatever it is you want to show echo "Hello World, I'm a great Dashboard Widget"; } // Create the function use in the action hook function example_add_dashboard_widgets() { wp_add_dashboard_widget('example_dashboard_widget', 'Example Dashboard Widget', 'example_dashboard_widget_function'); } // Hook into the 'wp_dashboard_setup' action to register our other functions add_action('wp_dashboard_setup', 'example_add_dashboard_widgets' );
With the previous example, I showed you how easy it is to remove unwanted dashboard widgets. The good news is that creating your own widgets isn’t hard either.
The well-commented code below should be self-explanatory. Just insert it in your functions.php, as usual.
