— I couldn’t get this filter to work. Neither could a couple of other people, so until there’s clarification on whether it still even has a purpose, I’m going to wait.
If you’re curious … the filter is only evaluated if the
dashboard_primary widget options aren’t set. And it appears that is never the case.
dashboard_primary_title filter allows you to modify the title of the ‘WordPress Blog’ dashboard widget.
Side note: As this filters a translatable string, your single-language filtered value could override a valid translation of the string. So keep that in mind.
Since we all love WordPress news, let’s say we wanted to change the name of the ‘WordPress Blog’ dashboard widget to something more awesome. The following example modifies the widget title to ‘Awesome WordPress Blog’.Have a suggested improvement? You can fork the Gist and comment back with the link. If all is agreeable, I’ll merge in your changes. Crowd-sourced documentation FTW!
