Multisite Dashboard Feed Widget is a WordPress plugin by senlin which by default it shows the titles (and links to) the 3 latest Posts of the Main Site (blog_id=1) in a box with a yellow background which shows as the first available widget in the dashboard of all sites hanging under the Multisite.
The author created the plugin because on WordPress version 3.1.2 the Dashboard Feed on Multisite had disappeared.
The default settings are:
– the plugin automatically takes the RSS Feed of the main site in the WordPress Multisite install (blog_id=1)
– the default number of RSS items is 3
– the standard title of the widget box is “Recent Updates”
