Include custom post types in “Right Now” admin dashboard widget

Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will include custom post types in “Right Now” admin dashboard widget. This is a great little snippet I found while browsing stack exchange the other day. Hope you enjoy this snippet as much as I did.

 

 

function wph_right_now_content_table_end() {
$args = array(
'public' => true ,
'_builtin' => false
);
$output = 'object';
$operator = 'and';
$post_types = get_post_types( $args , $output , $operator );
foreach( $post_types as $post_type ) {
$num_posts = wp_count_posts( $post_type->name );
$num = number_format_i18n( $num_posts->publish );
$text = _n( $post_type->labels->singular_name, $post_type->labels->name , intval( $num_posts->publish ) );
if ( current_user_can( 'edit_posts' ) ) {
$num = "<a href='edit.php?post_type=$post_type->name'>$num</a>";
$text = "<a href='edit.php?post_type=$post_type->name'>$text</a>";
}
echo '<tr><td class="first b b-' . $post_type->name . '">' . $num . '</td>';
echo '<td class="t ' . $post_type->name . '">' . $text . '</td></tr>';
}
$taxonomies = get_taxonomies( $args , $output , $operator );
foreach( $taxonomies as $taxonomy ) {
$num_terms  = wp_count_terms( $taxonomy->name );
$num = number_format_i18n( $num_terms );
$text = _n( $taxonomy->labels->singular_name, $taxonomy->labels->name , intval( $num_terms ));
if ( current_user_can( 'manage_categories' ) ) {
$num = "<a href='edit-tags.php?taxonomy=$taxonomy->name'>$num</a>";
$text = "<a href='edit-tags.php?taxonomy=$taxonomy->name'>$text</a>";
}
echo '<tr><td class="first b b-' . $taxonomy->name . '">' . $num . '</td>';
echo '<td class="t ' . $taxonomy->name . '">' . $text . '</td></tr>';
}
}
add_action( 'right_now_content_table_end' , 'wph_right_now_content_table_end' );
