Dashboard Help


Every wordpress install is unique in some way. Administrators need a way to deliver site specific recources/helps to the user. This plugin accomplishes this by adding a help button to the dashboard. When the help button is clicked the customizable help menu appears. Users can click the button again to hide the help menu.


  1. Upload dashboard-help folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Edit the filed named ‘content.txt’ in the ‘dashboard-help’ folder to include the user help you wish to display. Appropriate html tags should be used when placing content in content.txt.
  4. Set the variable $title, located in dashboard-help.php, to desired text.
