Custom Overview Section for notes/links

I would love to be able to create my own custom Overview section to put links to “stuff”. Is this possible and I’m just not seeing it?

Something like crating a new widget for the Overview page?

Exactly! Just a place you can put rich text/markdown would be fantastic.

Yes, this should be possible. The MainWP Dashboard provides necessary hooks for that. Have you checked the code? The good place to start would be the /pages/page-mainwp-overview.php file where yo can see how the MainWP_UI::add_widget_box() function is used, or even easier there are mainwp_before_overview_widgets and mainwp_after_overview_widgets actions to hook content before/after widgets on the Overview page.

Let me know if any additional help is needed.

Thanks. That’s more work to figure out than I’m really up to right now. I may put it on the back burner for now.
