#8243 closed enhancement (fixed)

Make draft pages to appear in "recent drafts" dashboard gadget

In 2.7 beta 2, draft Pages do not appear in "recent drafts" dashboard gadget. It would be very nice to see draft pages there as well. Another option is to make it optional and allow one to select whether he/she wants to see draft pages in the gadget.

There doesn't seem much call for this judging by the lack of traction, but I believe the attached one line change makes Pages appear as well as Posts. (It does for me.)

I like this a LOT now that custom post types are more commonplace. I'm uploading a more complicated patch that not only changes the post_type argument but also modifies the "View all..." link at the bottom of the widget to create a list of links to each of the post types' drafts.

  • Keywords needs-patch needs-docs removed

As @wonderboymusic suggests, I think a filter on the $query_args is the way forward. The patch I've just added does just that and also adds the requisite docs.
