plugins – turn elementor section on/off from dashboard

I have a Christmas light display, one of the ones that flashes to music. I use Elementor for my website (free version). What I want is some way to make a technical difficulties text on my website that I can easily and quickly turn on if my show is down. Is there any way to do something like this? Thanks!

website design – UI / UX alternative to a Dashboard, with more functions?

We have an app that works in two separate pages. It involves sharing content and presenting information with other users. The secondary, optional (but highly recommended) page is called a dashboard. From this there are metrics which show user connection status, and whether they have submitted requests for certain things, etc. Visually, it presents a quick way to see the status of all users.

So far, it’s clearly a dashboard. However, from this dashboard there is also the option to do actions like chat, edit, assign groups, etc. This seems to be going beyond a typical dashboard’s remit of presenting data. We don’t want to confuse users or make them miss features by limiting the second page to only a ‘dashboard’.

So my questions are:

  1. is there a better name for this UI/UX element than ‘Dashboard’?
  2. am I misguided in thinking a dashboard is just for viewing information, not carrying out actions/tasks?

Any thoughts on this would be very appreciated. Redesigning the app to separate data visualization features from action features is not possible.

dashboard – Use and display of real-time user experience data in web applications

The DTA’s Performance Dashboard seems to be the closest thing I have found that tracks user experience related performance and displays the information publicly.

As stated on the website:

The Performance Dashboard makes data open and accessible by measuring
the performance of Australian government services against the Digital
Service Standard.

This promotes government transparency and helps drive the ongoing
improvement of government services — for all Australians.

And you can see a snapshot of the information presented, and the KPIs that are measured:

  • User satisfaction – The overall satisfaction rate with the service.
  • Cost per transaction – The estimated cost to government, per transaction, for administering the service.
  • Digital take-up – The adoption rate for the digital service.
  • Completion rate – The overall rate of completion for users of the service.

Set a dashboard widget to the top?

Instead of manually dragging and dropping a dashboard widget to the top, is there a way to code it into the widget itself so it’s always at the top position?

Thank you in advance

plugins – Old ACF field groups render on the frontend but not on the dashboard page/post

I’m going to use the ACF plugin because it’s the one everybody has, but other plugins seem to be experiencing this as well.

I inherited a site and my ACF plugin (as well as a few other plugins) displays their setup data properly in the dashboard Dashboard field setup, the front-end data renders properly too, but I cannot find the fields on the actual pages and posts. I wish I were just blind but other people have looked for this with me and I even used the inspect tool to see if for some reason it was hidden and still nothing. I can create a new custom field type and it will render in the dashboard on the pages/posts just fine, the same result with the other plugins.

I’ve looked at a few articles online (ex. but so far I haven’t gotten anywhere.

I can make changes via the database (“shutters”), but I want to fix this issue. I wish I could just create new fields, but the site is too large and I’m bound to miss a lot of things. My thought is that somewhere in the database, the page/post dashboard data has been orphaned, but the front-end data remains.

Does anyone know where this orphaned data might be?
Am I completely off base and there is something else I should know?

custom post types – Team club with CPTs and user registration + user dashboard

I am creating a site to manage a rugby club, which has the following structure:

Disciplines> Categories> Divisions> Teams> Players

I was able to create the structure using JetEngine, CPTs and relationships between the CPTs.

What I need now is to find a plugin for player registration, which allows me to:

  • Request personal information from the user.
  • Request the type of partner (as “player” or as “partner”).
  • If the user chooses as “player”: he must choose a discipline> category> division> team and other data.
  • The user must have a “user panel” where they can see their information, fees paid, fees to pay, etc. (This is very important)

I’ve been looking at various membership plugins: memberpress, paid membership pro, restrict content pro, etc. but I BELIEVE that none of them have what I need or I’m not seeing it.

Rails Dashboard data wrangling – Software Engineering Stack Exchange

In a Rails app I’ve got 1-to-many relationships where I want to summarize on webpage dashboard:

Reservation (1)


ReservationItem (many)


HTML Table

Customer Name
Item 1 Quantity (Sum)
Item 2 Quantity (Sum)
Item 3 Quantity (Sum)
out_date_time (Min)
back_date_time (Max)

Item 1,2,3 are the most common items that are reserved so want the admin to be able to see them at glance. In general, most people will reserve only 1 item so want to display start/end date in the table.

My question: How to best pull this data/display and write automated tests for it?

  • Is there some active record query helpers that would make this
  • Do I write raw SQL code in my controller?
  • Do I pull simply join the 2 tables and write ruby methods to summary the data?
    If so where do I put these methods and call them from?
  • Is there a different method I am
    not thinking of?
