Administrator Dashboard Overview

The Dashboard (wp-admin) is the first screen you see when you log into the administration area. The main idea of the dashboard is to give you a place where you can get an at-a-glance overview of what’s happening with your site.

At a Glance
The At a Glance module is exactly what it sounds like! It offers an “at-a-glance” look at your blog’s posts, pages, comments, theme, and spam. Click on the links and you’ll be taken to the associated screen. There is a count of your total comments and spam caught by Akismet. You can also click on the numbers to load the appropriate comments screen.

The module has a lot of new functionality to make working with comments quick and easy from the Dashboard.

Down the left-hand side of the Admin Dashboard and on every page you will see your main admin navigation menu. This is where you’ll find all the installed modules, plugins, and WP options.

Hovering your cursor over each of the main menu options will display a ‘fly-out’ menu with the various choices for that particular menu option. Once you click each of the main menu options, that particular menu will expand to show all the available options within that section (if there are any).
