cvw_dashboardlinks

This is a Perch CMS dashboard widget that displays a list of links. Links are added by a user in the Perch Settings page. Possible uses include:

  • A list of links to custom Perch help pages.
  • Link to Google Analytics accounts.
  • A list of links to screencasts that show how Perch works.
  • Links to other areas of Perch admin, for example, link to a specific region/collection for editing.
  • A link to the developer's website.

Perch 3.0 required.

Instructions

Upload the cvw_dashboardlinks folder into /perch/addons/apps. Edit Dashboard Links settings in Perch Admin -> Settings. Save and the widget should appear on your dashboard.

Currently, the widget can display up to three links. The second and third links can be left blank if you want.

Note:

  • This is a personal project for me to learn about Perch widgets.
  • Perch dashboard widgets are re-ordered via drag and drop although there is a bug with some versions of Perch where this functionality is broken. Perch themselves know about this.
