Dashboard Widgets in PublishPress

PublishPress provides 3 dashboard widgets: Unpublished Content, Notepad, and Posts I'm following. These widgets appear on the main Dashboard screen in your WordPress admin area.

If you don't need these widgets, follow our guide to disabling dashboard widgets in WordPress.

Unpublished Content

The Unpublished Content widget gives an overview of the content that is in each custom status. Currently, this widget does only show posts, not other post types.

If you click on any of the links in this widget, you'll be taken to the main Posts page, and show only post with that status. Here is an example using the Draft status:
