Admin dashboard hacks
The standard PHPvms admin dashboard is a bit of a dog: the line graph, based on shockwave flash, was hacked a few years ago, and the "Latest news" never shows any news. So here are some tips for improvement.
Open up /admin/modules/dashboard/dashboard.php and add the following to the index function, before $this->render
$this->set('pireps', PIREPData::getIntervalDataByDays(array(), 30)); $this->set('allbids', SchedulesData::getAllBids()); $this->set('screenshots', ScreenshotsData::getscreenshots_toapprove());
You can change the 30 to however many days you want to show up on your graph.
The third line only applies if you have the screenshot/gallery module installed. If you do, you must copy screenshots_approval.tpl to your /core/admin/templates folder!
Next, open up the file /admin/templates/dashboard.tpl or php. Look for the lines after "click here to send them", approximately line 36. After the } that ends the block, paste this:

Once everything is working, your admin panel should look like the screenshot below
