    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.
