On websites I develop for clients I always add this widget to their WordPress Dashboard to keep them informed on general updates regarding their websites. I thought it would be a handy tool for other developers, so I turned my widget into a plugin.
The default settings are:
- the standard title of the widget box is “Recent Updates”
- as I needed a default feed URL I used the feed of WP TIPS, one of my own websites
- the default number of RSS items is 3
The plugin comes localized for use on sites other than the English language and/or on bi/multilingual websites. In the languages folder you will find the .po and .mo files. Feel free to send me translations in other languages, I will then add them to this folder and of course I will credit you here.
