Huge Updates to WPMU DEV Dashboard: Updates, Support and More

Our WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin has had a makeover.

If you’ve got the plugin installed you may have noticed a few changes in the past 48 hours that make it even easier to get access to updates and support.

WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin
The WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin lets you access all of our products from the comfort of your WordPress install.

The latest update to WPMU DEV Dashboard is a big one:

WordPress 3.8 styles compatibility: The WPMU DEV Dashboard looks fantastic with the new-look WordPress backend, no matter which color scheme you choose.

Support for optional background auto-updates: The Dashboard plugin can now update all of your WPMU DEV plugins and themes as they become available. Too cool! You’ll never have to manually update ever again – now it all happens in the background while you sleep.

Improvements to the support page view – instructions, system information: Help our support crew help you. The WPMU DEV > Support > System Info page displays information about your local WordPress install to help our support guys diagnose your problems.

Remote support login: As a WPMU DEV member when you need advanced support you can grant WPMU DEV support staff temporary admin access to your site with one click, review staff access history logs, and revoke their access. This is completely secure, optional, and fully controlled by you. No more temporary passwords to manage or credentials sent insecurely over email!

Activate/deactivate links shown on listings: Now you can easily scroll or search through our plugins and themes and quickly activate and deactivate our plugins.

Usage instructions displayed with plugin listings: Easily access the usage instructions for any of our plugins. Just scroll or search through the plugins list, find your plugin and click “Instructions.” Never get stuck looking for help again.
