We’ve been working hard, fine-tuning, testing, and taking in your valuable feedback. Today, I am super excited to unveil MainWP 4.5 – a major release set to make your website management experience even more incredible.
Here’s a glimpse of what it includes:
Main dashboard navigation redesigned
“Flexible Widgets” to stretch or shrink widgets
Three new widgets on the client’s overview page
Site-specific search for plugins & themes
Find sites with missing plugins & themes
PHPSecLib as a fallback to OpenSSL
OpenSSL signature verification algorithm
Permissions for MainWP REST API keys
Over 20 Extensions updated
Enhanced encryption system for 3rd-party API keys
And a lot more…
Here’s the quick walkthrough for MainWP 4.5 to see them in action
Head over to the announcement post to discover more.
My Overview dashboard also messed up. Cleared it all and rebuild. Using a Brave (Chrome) browser I experience that all panels showing a variable number of items such as: Monitor, Lighthouse and SSL Monitor all grow outside their background frame - creating messed up overlaps between panels.
Thanks. I will review that resource and ensure that all installed extensions are current. I rearranged items to more suitable positions. I still have some Z axis overlap that is problematic. If I cannot clear it up, I’ll open a support request.
Did a hard refresh, cleared cache, all extensions are latest version. Nothing changes.
I do see this error in console:
Uncaught ReferenceError: mainwp_ui_state_load is not defined

I’m not terribly excited about the redesigned Main dashboard navigation. When I get to the overview and I want to view the 2nd level navigation menu to manage Tags, Updates, Plugins etc. (via the submenu of Sites) I have to load Manage Sites first before the navigation menu is available/interactive. Because Manage Sites takes a long time to load (I manage a lot of websites) it also takes a long time until the 2nd level navigation menu is available.
It would be more user-friendly to have the 2nd level navigation menu appear on mouse-over (just like with WordPress Admin) so that it is no longer necessary to load the parent page first before the 2nd level navigation menu can actually be used.
We are exploring options for having 2nd level navigation menus be accessible from any Dashboard page, and having them reveal upon mouse hover is done of them. However, we haven’t decided on the details yet.
