If you are building WordPress sites for clients, then here’s the perfect solution to quickly brand the dashboard with your own logo, and remove the default WordPress widgets that confuse your clients.
Now, everytime your customer loads their WordPress admin area, they will be reminded of you and feel an overwhelming urge to call you up and give you more money to implement new features on their site.
I hope you enjoy this plugin… It is quite simple, but quite handy if you are tired of training your clients on how to navigate the WordPress admin.
