There should be more hooks for the Dashboard

As a plugin author, I know that sometimes I would like to put some plugin information on the front page, where it is easy for the user to see. But currently, the only hook that I can use to do this is down at the bottom of the page, near the end of the Activity box. I would like to see a hook that lets plugins insert their information at the top of the dashboard landing page, and maybe a few more in different positions. I'll submit a patch for this soon.

  • Keywords wait-for-new-design added; dashboard has-patch needs-testing removed

This needs to wait until the new admin design is fully coded as this may already be solved by the changes to the dashboard that are in progress.

#3 @ffemtcj

  • Keywords reporter-feedback added
  • Milestone changed from 2.5 to 2.6

Is this still valid after the redesign?

#4 @DD32

  • Milestone 2.9 deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Since the dashboard uses widgets now, I dont think this is valid.
