  • When you say dashboard, you mean an admin dashboard? Why would you want a custom one? What are you trying to achieve? – Ciprian Jul 19 '18 at 15:47

you could use this plugin: custom dashboard to design a new dashboard in the frontend of your site, you also can customize the main dashboard yourself. Customize your wordpress dashboard give you good start point on this matter.

  • Thank you for your answer. I thought about this Plugins. But how can i Integrate this in my theme? Snippet in Funktions.php? Or is there an other way. So you know any snippet for this? Thanks – Steph Jul 19 '18 at 15:44

You're not supposed to modify the Dashboard.

It's recommended to create custom post types for content organisation and a top-level feature plugin for more complex options and settings. You can also use the Customizer to allow theme changes. A theme might already have these settings, so you could add some meta boxes with general help and how-to tutorials. You can also change the admin theme.

Note that a major WordPress version is coming really soon - 5.0 - and a feature plugin to make the admin theme dark is already submitted for consideration in core. Any Dashboard-changing plugin you might find, could be invalidated by this major version.

Also note that any Dashboard-changing plugin you might find is usually based on hacks and styling overrides.
