The Quick Draft widget on the admin dashboard has an area to create a new post and a list of recent drafts. I'd like a widget like this but with ONLY a list of recent drafts. Surprisingly, I couldn't find a plugin that already does this. What's my best way forward - can I modify the Quick Drafts widget, or clone it?

if you are comfortable with it maybe you can make the widget yourself? It would be a very easy plugin to make, just one query with a about three parameters.

  • just run a query that gets all the posts you want to list and display them in the widget you make using the code at this link: wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/…
