If the plugin has been correctly installed, you will see the following under
System Overview > Plugins
To add My Blogs to your dashboard, simply browse to a dashboard and you will now find a drop down menu now appears at the bottom of the main content section. Choose
My Blogsfrom this drop down menu and click
Add. The page will now refresh and the My Blogs widget will now appear
Note: The system overview dashboard and blog dashboards are all configured separately. If you want My Blogs to appear for all your dashboards, you will have to add them individually to each dashboard as Step 3 describes.
The widget has two configuration options that can be set from the
System Overview > Pluginsscreen. These determine the order that blogs will appear in the My Blogs widget.
