    Hey Subrion fans,

    my name is Tim and I am relatively new to Subrion CMS. I need to display additional information inside the admin dashboard. Is it possible to create plugins for the admin dashboard area as well ?

    I would appreciate any help :)

    Hi Tim,

    Welcome aboard :) Yes, you can create more plugins for dashboard easily. There are some hooks all over admin dashboard as well, so you can add more stuff there.
    Here are a couple of plugins that could be used as an example:

    http://www.subrion.org/plugin/mgsimpleweather.html
    http://www.subrion.org/plugin/member_map.html
    http://www.subrion.org/plugin/admin_wall.html

    If you wish to add extra pages, you can refer to News / Blog plugins to see how pages are created in admin dashboard.

    Let us know if you have more questions.

    Cheers

    Hey,

    thanks for your reply. I will refer to the news plugin because it creates a new block in the admin dashboard, which is what I actually need :)

    Well, that's some sort of common abstract functionality that comes in the core system. I guess you'd need to check News, Personal Blog, & Wall plugins in this case to understand how it works. It's generally handled by some methods in admin controllers.

    Good luck with that.

    It will absolutely save you time etc. Are you ok with a 'non-custom' control panel? If so, then go for it knowing, and this is the case with not just bootstrap but really any of the frameworks etc. bloat. How important is bloat and download speeds SHAREit to your users? If your going to be using say 75-80% of the components in bootstrap then the trade is probably worth the time savings IMO.

    The other side of that, if you're never displaying tables, then why are you making the user download a few thousand lines of CSS etc. for those tables? It may just be me but I def look at the overall project and how much am I going to use and is it UC Browser worth it?

    The other option, throw it up with bootstrap. It's an MVP (Minimal viable product) that way. Then circle back and write yourself a custom solution. That way you MX Player haven't invested time and money into a custom solution only to see your cp crash and burn.
