The Dashboard is a collection of information blocks that provide information at a glance. Viewing new comments, making a quick draft post, reading the latest WordPress news and more. can be done from the Dashboard.
Select Information to Display
To configure what information to be seen on the Dashboard, select Screen Options in the top-right of the screen. Then, check and uncheck the different information blocks to show/hide.
Arrange Information Blocks
Rearrange information blocks by dragging and dropping them. Please note that because the WordPress admin panel is responsive, the number of available columns will depend on the size of display screen.
Plugins may provide additional Dashboard information blocks to use. For example, the WooCommerce plugin will allow for information such as recent orders and monthly sales graph to display on the Dashboard. Additional plugin information can also be shown or hidden from the Screen Options panel.
