Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing the Dashboard, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8 Essential Training.
…While the WordPress administration implementation is sophisticated…and powerful, it's not carved in stone.…In this lesson, I'll show you how to remove unwanted features, add…new content and even customise the login screen with your client's brand.…Let's start by reducing the clutter that we see here on the Dashboard.…Now, if you just want to personalize the Dashboard…for your own use, click the Screen Options…tab over on the top right.…This will allow you to toggle existing sections on and off.…
For example let's bring the Welcome box back.…Now, you could either dismiss this here or just toggle it off again here.…Customizing your Dashboard via the screen options is just a per user experience.…However, with a little extra work, you could…also control the look and feel of the Dashboard for your clients.…So let me close down the screen options here.…The dashboard overall, is comprised of a series of widgets.…Some, more hm, informative than others.…
And some more, definitely, more pertinent than others for the standard client.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
