On websites we develop for clients we always add this widget to their WordPress Dashboard to keep them informed on general updates regarding their websites. We thought it would be a handy tool for other developers, so we turned the widget into a plugin.

The default settings are:

  • the standard title of the widget box is “Recent Updates”
  • as we needed a default feed URL we use the feed of WP TIPS, one of our own websites
  • the default number of RSS items is 3
  • do not open link in new tab (since 2014.07.27)
  • yellow background color of the widget (#FFFF99)

We have decided to only support this plugin through Github. Therefore, if you have any questions, need help and/or want to make a feature request, please open an issue over at Github. You can also browse through open and closed issues to find what you are looking for and perhaps even help others.
