What if i dont want the plugin to remove one of the dashboard widgets?

You can re-enable the dashboard widget by editing the PHP file for the plugin…

Plugins > Editor > Dashboard Cleanup > nova-dashboard-cleanup.php

You will find a section that looks like this # remove_meta_box( ‘############’, ‘dashboard’, ‘####’ ); #

If you delete the one you want to re-enable and hit save it will re-enable that dashboard widget

E.g. If i wanted to re-enable the “Quick Press” Dashboard Widget I will remove the following code…

remove_meta_box(‘dashboard_quick_press’, ‘dashboard’, ‘core’ );

If you see it says “dashboard_quick_press” this is related to the widget name…
