Dashboard Class or Constants

In order to maintain design uniformity and be able to style your module markup specifically for osDXP, you can make use of either the CSS class or PHP constant defined by osDXP Dashboard.

When the Dashboard is active, the dxp-dashboard class is added to the body element class list, allowing you to scope styles for osDXP-only use.

There is also the OSDXP_DASHBOARD_IS_ACTIVE constant that gets defined and set to 1 when the osDXP Dashboard is visible. In legacy WordPress, this is unset.

Example Code

.wp-admin.dxp-dashboard .my-class { color: red; }

Notification Threshold

In order to maintain clarity, osDXP Dashboard will concatenate all administrator notifications into a single, expandable, notification.

If desired, this functionality can be hooked into via the osdxp_notifications_threshold filter in order to define the threshold at which concatenation will happen.

Filter Return Value

The filter callback needs to return the threshold number as an integer.

Example Code

function () {
//will collapse notifications if 20 or more present
return 20;
