    What file do I edit to change the admin frontpage? Dashboard I think its called in wp? I want to change the headlines from WP stuff to my own's blog thing, to keep users updated. And all those boxes with feeds, how do I change them?

    I don't think my users care about what software I am using and stuff about it :P

    Your best bet is to wait for the code from the recent changes to the Wordpress.com dashboard to filter down to us peons. :)

    Talking of such is it planned for changes like that to be made available eventually or is Wordpress.com going to remain separate from the main Wordpress MU code base?

    wp-admin/index.php

    If you're on it, mov eth edrafts up to that box at the right, that's what I did first ;-)

    Mind telling me how? So far I removed all those boxes at the bottom, "Other wordpress news" or something. And I changed the feed urls to my blog but it still shows up WordPress development blog, and not mine.

    I am new to php :P

    This same thing happened to me. It is because of the new ajax updaters. I commented out lines 10 and 11 of the wp-admin/index.php file and everything is working normally again. The lines in question are...

    var update2 = new Ajax.Updater( 'devnews', 'index-extra.php?jax=devnews' );

    and

    var update3 = new Ajax.Updater( 'planetnews', 'index-extra.php?jax=planetnews'	);

    Well that gets rid of them. I think the poster was trying to change the location of the feeds.

    That's dealt with in the wp-admin/index-extras.php file.

    Can we have the default feed a configurable item?

    If the code is contributed to make the default feed configurable through the admin interface will this get incorporated into mu?

    Probably not, because this option was in there already and was taken out.

    Why was it taken out?

    Beats me. Ask Donncha. Maybe the reason is in the trac somewhere, I dunno.

    I got him on #wordpress:

    on wpmu, during http://trac.mu.wordpress.org/changeset/619, you replaced get_site_option( 'dashboardfeed1name' ) with hardcoding to fetch_rss('http://wordpress.org/development/feed/'; many administrators of wpmu have to make this change back - typically because their audiences are not software developers so they would not be interested in the wordpress development feed

    To which Donncha said:

    That's been replaced with a filter now AFAIR; see the "dashboard_primary_feed" filter here? http://trac.mu.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-admin/index-extra.php

    So in short, "watch this space" :)

    There's a spot under Site Admin to put the link to the admin blog feed.

    Hi,

    I have been using a plugin to accomplish this.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-dashboard-editor/

    I have a hunch it is safer than going in and removing chunks of coding on your own. Especially if you are "new to PHP".

    Hope that helps,
    Gene :-)
