    With the new WPMU, how do I customize the default settings for the dashboard so by default it gets my blog sites news, not WordPress news. I know I can change the feed options as the user, but I want to change the default feed options.

    Again this is off thet top of my head but the urls I believe are found in wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php. Do note that for each blog, they are saved now as a option within the blog's option table so if you change the file, those blogs that have already been created will show what was previous there.

    I can vouch that this is correct. You'll find the first feed beginning on line 65 and the second beginning on line 87 of wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php

    There's a good plugin for WP that works well with WPMU, google "wordpress dashboard editor".

    looks like this isn't supported in version 2.7

    what are you all using?

    i can't believe this isn't an option yet to customize the dashboard for new users. seems to be a very common question and some what of a pain to edit and test with each new release.

    no it does not support 2.7. There was another one named Dashboard manager. It's also not working. I just Edit the dash board in a dirty way :D

    I know it's not the best option. But if you can u then why not make it according to your need?

    I've got a plugin almost ready for prime time. The one thing I'm not able to do at this point is restrict the user from changing the feed. So, the site admin can set up what feed they want, but then the user can still configure it. I had it figured out in 2.6.5, but so far, no go in 2.7.
