Also you can display the contents of your notepad using a template tag or shortcode. The widget permissions apply to these tags as well: only users with permission to read the notes will see the notes on the front end. You can use div#dashboard-notes in your theme’s CSS file for styling the notes.

Installation & Usage:

  1. Install and activate the plugin
  2. Visit Dashboard and configure the widget by clicking the link in its upper right corner.
  3. For displaying your notes in a theme file, use the <?php dashboard_notes(); ?> template tag.
  4. For displaying your notes in a post, page, or text widget, use the [dashboard_notes]shortcode.
  5. To use it in a widget, you’ll have to enable shortcode parsing in text widgets, if you haven’t already. Add add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode'); to your functions.php file.
  6. You can use div#dashboard-notes in your theme’s CSS file to style the notes.
