This lightweight plugin allows user to create a Dashboard widget with frequently accessed wp-admin menu for quick access.
I originally develop this plugin after spending hours of time creating client/user documentation for every WordPress projects. Instead of writting step by step navigation documentation, I used this script to organize all necessary links on the single widget for non-technical users. As a developer, I also use this script myself to organize frequently accessed wp admin links for quick access.
If you have any feedback or queries please contact developer at hemthapa.com

That’s all, Now user can simply click on the button in the dashboard widget to access the page.
How to format the list of the links?
