This lightweight plugin allows user to create a Dashboard widget with frequently accessed wp-admin menu for quick access.

This lightweight plugin allows user to create a Dashboard widget with frequently accessed wp-admin menu for quick access.

I develop this plugin after spending hours of time on creating client/user documentation for every WordPress projects. Instead of writting step by step navigation documentation, I use this script to organize all necessary links on the single widget for non-technical users. As a developer, I also use this script myself to organize frequently accessed wp admin links for quick access.

If you have any feedback or queries please contact developer at http://www.hemthapa.com
