Creating Dashboard Pages

To manage the different sections of the WPCasa Dashboard it includes a number of shortcodes that can be added to static pages (New Listing, Login etc.).


Under the Dashboard tab on the WPCasa settings page on WP-Admin > WPCasa > Settings we can assign these pages to let the add-on know where they are located.

Create Pages

In order to set the dashboard pages we need to activate the Pages option which is a toggle for another array of settings.

When you install this version (v1.1.0 or later) of WPCasa Dashboard for the first time you will love the first option that allows you to create all the necessary dashboard pages automatically. But please handle this option with care. It should only be executed on a fresh install.

If you decide to use this option, just activate it and save the settings. The set of pages with their corresponding shortcodes will then be created and assigned accordingly.
