ZigDashNote is a small WordPress plugin that adds a simple text widget to your Admin Dashboard page, allowing you to leave notes and reminders for yourself and fellow admins. It allows HTML if the user has the unfiltered_html capability, and will attempt to make all URLs into links.

You can change the title as well as the content, and remove the credit link if you prefer.

ZigDashNote in action

ZigDashNote owes its inspiration to the existing WordPress plugin “Dashboard Post-it“. However, it will make any URLs you enter into links, and has been written from scratch using OOP techniques.

You can deactivate and reactivate the plugin without losing your notes.


  1. Unzip the downloaded file and upload the resulting folder to your wp-content/plugins folder.
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Go to the Dashboard and hover over the ZigDashNote title bar to see the configure link.

ZigDashNote is a free plugin released under the GNU General Public License version 2.
