Dashboard: Pending Review

WordPress 2.5 introduces a widgetized dashboard and some people had been wanting to see a list of all posts pending review on the dashboard, so I wrote this widget.

  3. I love this Plugin ! Since WP 2.7 this is a must have. For WP2.7 you have to remove this line “extract( $args, EXTR_SKIP );” from dashboard-pending-review.php to work without errors. Don’t know what this do for but works fine without this line. Greetz from Germany.

  4. I’ve apparently had an updated version of this sitting on my computer for quite a while (rewritten for WordPress 2.7). I’ve committed it and included a translation template while was as it.

    If you send me the translation file, I’ll include it. :)

  7. Works great, but I do need it to display Pages pending review as well as just posts. Is that possible? Otherwise it’s no good because the pages will be forgotten…

  8. I’ve tried that, but it still just returns posts. I also tried changing ‘post’ into ‘page’, which does work, but (as you’d expect) only returns pages.

    What I’m after is an OR, but I’m not sure of the syntax. I tried

    'post_type' => 'post' || 'post_type' => 'page', 

    but that crashed the dashboard. Am I close?! Sorry to have to ask, but I’m at the limits of my coding knowledge here…! :-)

    • Oh, try this:

      'post_type' => 'any',

      I guess it defaults to “post” if you don’t pass that parameter.

      I should just update my plugin to do this without any modifications.

  9. Alright, I’ve got things to work, but it wasn’t a bump-free ride.

    The .pot template is not up to date. I generated a .mo file from the .php page. One of the sentences was not translating because the line showing it was wrong.

    _e( 'There are no pending posts at the moment', 'dashboard-scheduled-posts' );

    had to be replaced by

    _e( 'There are no pending posts at the moment', 'dashboard-pending-review');
  10. Hi this is really a amazing plugin but how can I restrict this plugin for only admin so that other users cannot see it in their dashboard and only admin can see all the pending post from other users in his dashboard..please can any one tell me how it is possible.

  11. Hi, I ‘ve been making test posts as an administrator and another role as contributor. Pending Review box appears in thedashboard, although posts don’t appear in Pending Review box. They do go live and appear in Recent Comments box on the Dashboard.

    If posting as contributor, posts appear in Recent Comments box as Pending.

    Any idea why my Pending Review boxes stay empty?

    Mark.
