This is a wonderful plugin. It allows me to add custom dashboard widgets with information relevant to my custom plugin. The references are a boon to my clients. And I love the new white label treatment for the admin! I had tried to do it myself and was continually fixing things. I love that I only have to set a few options and BAM, there it is!

I moved onto another plugin after their were limitations with this plugin. I moved onto MenuEditor Pro cheaper and does a lot more. Now I wish I could only get my money back... There is no way to even ask for money back.. Dont buy this plugin-use it for FREE or try MenuEditor Pro

Now the free version contains a lot of useful features. HTML widget type, login customizer, branding whitelabeling, and some additional settings. I have some copies of the PRO one, and i can say the new features are great. I feel like, this plugin is reborn.
