  3. Add your first note via the ‘Add note’ button by clicking on the ‘Add note’ button in the top admin bar on your admin dashboard.


Hoe voeg ik een nieuwe notitie toe?

Een nieuwe notitie toevoegen kan op twee manieren.

  • There is a ‘Add note’ button is located in the top admin bar
  • Or you can add a new note from within an existing note. When hovering over a note there will show an black bar at the bottom of that note. There is an ‘+’ within that bar where you can add a new note.

Is het mogelijk om de kleuren te veranderen

You could change the colors by overriding the style from another stylesheet. If you need help with this, ask in the support forums.

Hoe voeg ik mijn eigen kleuren toe?

Add the following code to your functions.php, you can change the values of course to your own colors.


add_filter( 'wpdn_colors', 'wpdn_add_purple' );
function wpdn_add_purple( $colors ) {

    $colors['purple'] = '#5236A0';

    return $colors;


You can add the following code for extra styling (e.g. light text instead of dark)

add_action( 'admin_head', 'wpdn_add_style' );
function wpdn_add_style() {


         * purple
        [data-color-text=purple] {
            color: white;
        [data-color-text=purple] .wpdn-note-sortable {
            color: inherit;
        [data-color-text=purple] .wpdn-add-item {
            color: inherit;
        [data-color-text=purple] .wp-dashboard-note .list-item {
            border-color: inherit;

        [data-color-text=purple] .list-item input[type=checkbox] {
            border: 1px solid white !important;

        [data-color-text=purple] .list-item input[type=checkbox]:checked ~ span {
            color: white;
        /* Unused for now */
        [data-color-text=purple] [id^=note] .handlediv {
            color: inherit;
        /* Add list item input colors */
        [data-color-text=purple] input[type=text].add-list-item {
            border-color: white;
            color: inherit;
            background: inherit;
        /* Placeholder text color */
        [data-color-text=purple] input[type=text].add-list-item::-webkit-input-placeholder {
           color: white;
        [data-color-text=purple] input[type=text].add-list-item:-moz-placeholder {
           color: white;
        [data-color-text=purple] input[type=text].add-list-item::-moz-placeholder {
           color: white;
        [data-color-text=purple] input[type=text].add-list-item:-ms-input-placeholder {
           color: white;
        /* Saved/saving text color */
        [data-color-text=purple] .saved-icon,
        [data-color-text=purple] .saving-icon {
            color: inherit;
        /* Delete icon */
        [data-color-text=purple] .list-item .dashicons-no-alt {
            color: white;
        /* Sort icon */
        [data-color-text=purple] .wpdn-note-sortable {
            color: white;

This is a good plugin to place and share notes on the dashboard.However, line breaks in typed or copy-pasted sentences do not work. The sentence is broken. The only way seems to be to adjust with spaces.The disadvantage is that it is difficult to understand when typing in a memo. You can’t use the mouse to position the input.That is the most regrettable.

Great idea, for a long time I was looking for something to leave notes to colleagues about modifications or pending things, and this plugin allows it. Thank you very much!

Working on a webdsite, blog, shop and beyond is just top complex. New ideas pop-up on the fly and people need to know. We had these Dashboard Notes in intuitive colours in our backend for years now, since 2018 to be exact, and it’s just doing it’s thing unpretentiously! – No adds – No promotion for elite subscription – No real estate in menus In fact no noise! Simple, practical and undescribably helpfull! You can’t run a site without it! Huge thx. Henrik
