I am brand new in your community and happy to join.
Up till now I have been using the wordpress.org plugins for both my standalone and multisite installations and been happy with quite a few of them.
One of them is the excellent Dashboard commander plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/dashboard-commander/).
It's main feature is that it manages to exclude even dynamically loaded plugins like the ones by yoast.com. BTW I use the beautiful Joost's SEO plugin for my sites so far. How does the WPMU DEV SEO compare to it? Any posts on the subject? Should I change over?
But let me get back to the dashboard Commander. The thing is that one has to visit the dashboard to set it up otherwise you get a blank dashboard till this is done. I wonder if this would be a problem using it together with the New Blog Templates Plugin.
Furthermore could you implement such a function -without having to go to the dashboard first- to the WPMU plugin? And maybe join it together with the Dashboard Feeds plugin.
Could you please look into it?
What does the rest of the people think about the enhancement? Sounds interesting?
Thank you all
