Chapter 2: Customizing Your Dashboard

In This Chapter

  • Arranging the elements of your Dashboard
  • Using inline documentation and help
  • Specifying Dashboard options
  • Making the Dashboard into your own workspace

Whether you work in a cubicle at your local post office or in the comfort of your own home office, you create a workspace individualized to your tastes and needs. Your pens and pencils are in one spot, papers and note cards in another, and your computer monitor and keyboard are placed in a position comfortable and convenient for you. It's your space, and you make it work the best you can with the space you have.

One of the features we've really become quite fond of in WordPress is the ability to create your own workspace within the Dashboard. In this chapter, you can find out how to customize your WordPress Dashboard to fit your own individual needs, including the layout of the Dashboard, changing links and RSS feed information, and even rearranging the modules in the different pages of the Dashboard. Armed with this information, you can open up your Dashboard and create your very own workspace.
