    We’re been using the colourful dashboard for quite a while. We got it from M60 plugin. Now it’s useless because WordPress have just improved their dashboard.

      I had not heard of this plug in previously, I wish I had. I hated the old WP dashboard, this new more colorful one brightens my day and encourages me to keep working! Real positive vibes from the new layout!
