Getting back custom dashboard feeds - quick fix (11 posts)

    Editing the newer wp-admin/index.php cause problems for me, like the feed not updating, so I tried a less eye-bleeding, code hunting way. Please let me know if it worked for you.

    - grab an earlier build if you don't have on on your hard drive somewhere (see wpmudev.org if you need one)
    - find the files /wp-admin/index.php file and /wp-admin/wpmu-feed.php
    - in your install, remname the wp-admin/index/php to index_old.php
    - upload the new (okay, older) index.php and wpmu-feeds.php to the /wp-admin/ folder on the server.
    Go to your back end and check it out.

    Actually the dash RDD feeds are hardcoded into the wp-admin/index.php file. At least that's where I changed mine. Top one is for the main site's blog (ie announcements) and bottom one is from the Sitewide feed.

    Hi,

    I also changed the feeds in wp-admin/index.php abd they stop to updated. The feed that I'm now using is working fine but no updates in the dashboard. I entered the original feeds back in and thet also not updating.

    Any ideas?

    mrjcleaver,

    I have seen this link and did change the rss feed in index.php. The problem seems to be that the feed is not updated. Maybe it is beeing cached somewhere?

    Thank!

    Try clearing out wp-content/cache/ maybe?

    I think you may also have to use the old rss-functions.php Not exact on the file name.
