One of the things with WordPress is that the Admin is not very flexible. Enter...Ultimate Dashboard. We were able to customize a unique solution and admin that looks different enough to warrant a brand new customer experience. Those who work with WordPress but want more control over the admin should look no further.

David provides super-fast responses and the product is absolutely amazing! We are very pleased with both the product (all of its features) and the support is just outstanding. We always look for the kind of support to see how long a product will survive. In this case, this product will survive when others fail. Good luck to you David! Awesome work!

I am trying to activate the plugin but it is not possible because of this error: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'array' (T_ARRAY), expecting identifier (T_STRING) in /home/spainpro/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ultimate-dashboard/modules/base/class-base-module.php on line 27 I am using WordPress version 5.0.3 Can you help to fix this error? Thanks!

It used to be a very good plugin. Smartly planned and not overloaded with unnecessary features. Now it's crap where everything is pointless. Aggressive marketing just irritates. You shouldn't go like that. Go back to the old plugin version that was what it should have been and that was logical. Change your pricing policy. Reasonable Proposition: - You're doing a simple dashboard plugin, only for dashboard FREE and PRO. - Pro costs $ 29 / year + lifetime option. - You can sell addons for the pro version for $ 15 or $ 20 (the total cost will exceed $ 130) And develop functionalities in the dashboard area: notes, messages, business cards with photos of users in a given profile. Then you sell a thousand and you stand still. You do plugin that will not sell because it is something unfunctional and not logical.

This is a wonderful plugin. It allows me to add custom dashboard widgets with information relevant to my custom plugin. The references are a boon to my clients. And I love the new white label treatment for the admin! I had tried to do it myself and was continually fixing things. I love that I only have to set a few options and BAM, there it is!

I moved onto another plugin after their were limitations with this plugin. I moved onto MenuEditor Pro cheaper and does a lot more. Now I wish I could only get my money back... There is no way to even ask for money back.. Dont buy this plugin-use it for FREE or try MenuEditor Pro
