Editable RSS Feed in DashBoard (14 posts)

    Hi,

    On old WPMu versions, we could change the two RSS feeds in the dashboard. Do you have an ID why this functionality has been removed ? Do you plan to re-implement it ? Can we submit paches for it ?

    Regards.

    I changed mine. I just edited wp-admin/index.php and stuck the feeds I wanted in there.

    *chuckle* I'm sure Matt and staff get enough traffic as it is. :)

    No idea why it was removed, and I believe in another thread Donncha stated it wasn't coming back.
    Edit the file like drmike said, or snag an older copy of that index page, which is what I did.

    I just upgraded and was sad to find this was gone :(

    I'll edit the index.php file myself as well I suppose.

    That's the solution until someone gets around to writing a plugin for it.

    I'd rather have the RSS in there myself. That way I know my end users are seeing the announcement blog posts. If they were to modify it to something else, then they wouldn't be getting important spam, um, I mean announcments. :)

    I have edited index.php for the new rss feed. It worked for the first time but since it has not updated (neddless to say that the the feed source is fine).

    I have read this:

    but it does not seems to work.

    Any ideas?

    There's no need to edit the Dashboard now. Create filter functions for the following filters to change the feeds and titles:

    dashboard_primary_feed - primary feed url
    dashboard_primary_title - primary feed title

    dashboard_secondary_feed
    dashboard_secondary_title

    Where do I edit these? Just change RSS feeds and titles in "wp-admin/index-extra.php" file?

    Yep.
    Or you could try this plugin:

    I've added a very simple plugin to wpmudev.org for anyone who wants to change the dashboard feeds:
    http://wpmudevorg.wordpress.com/project/Simple-Dashboard-Feeds

    It's better to use than the plugin I made for WP Single as it doesn't add any options to the database.
