I need a programmer experienced with WordPress to modify an existing widget that I use so that it will modify the WordPress dashboard to display content that I will provide, as well as continue performing it's intended task.
The current widget takes a XML feed and displays it in the sidebar. The feed is of a list of products. I need for this widget to modify the WordPress dashboard as described above when it gets installed. You can see the widget in action by going here: [url removed, login to view]
The modification should look like and function as in the following image:
[url removed, login to view]
I would like for the dashboard to pull the content from a text file that will be hosted on a local or remote server. The text file will have preformatted content coded in HTML in it, and should be displayed in the dashboard. An XML feed might work better, but I can discuss that with the successful bidder... Although, I would prefer a text file with the content coded in HTML.
So to recap... I have an existing widget that performs a certain function. I need that widget to be rewritten so that it ALSO modifies the WordPress dashboard, upon installation, to display HTML content from a text file that will be hosted either locally or remotely.
