The Dash extension allows you to create a centralized administration dashboard, as well as include an administration menu on your pages.



This has been tested with 1.1.9, but should work with any version.

Install the database schema located in '/data/dash.sql', modifying the table prefix as needed.


Be sure to configure the 'db' component of your app to use a table prefix, otherwise you must update the DashBlock model's table name.

return array(
   'modules' => array(


To view/configure the dashboard, simple visit 'dash' and start creating blocks. Each block has a title and a set of links (referred to as actions). Each action goes on a new line, using the format > URL|Title (e.g. http://google.com|Google or site/login|Login)

To use the dashboard menu, include the following widget before the </body> tag in your main layout file. NOTE: Be sure to check the user's access before displaying the widget.
