This was built for v4 & v6 and required some fiddling to get working in v7.
This is a simple dashboard for the Developer section, which shows you the latest edited content & media, specifically:
It shows the latest 10 entries in descending order - a node that was created and updated on the same day (very common) will only show in the "created" section, so it doesn't also take another node's spot in the "updated" section.
Each node displayed will show the DocumentType's alias and the Name of the node, e.g.:
It puts an "Edit" link right next to each node, so you can jump immediately to the editing page for it. If you're using the XMLDump package, there's also an "XML" link that opens the page in XMLDump for you.
Umbraco's default thumbnail will be shown for the lateset 16 items, each wrapped in a link so you can go directly to the specific item in the Media section.
Note: The XSLT will auto-detect the presence of uComponents' Media XSLT Extensions - if you haven't installed those, look for the variable 'mediaFolderId' in the XSLT - replace the zero with the id of the Media folder you want to "monitor":
Look for the variable mediaFolderId in the XSLT - replace the zero with your id:
<code><xsl:variable name="mediaFolderId" select="0" /></code>
The best part is: It's just a standard XSLT Macro (yes, XSLT) that you can edit to your heart's extent.
Have to see more than 10 entries per section? Change the itemsToShow variable, hit "Save" - and there you have it. Need to filter out some DocumentTypes? Change the nodes variable. Etc.
Usually you can just upload the new XSLT file (grab it from the dist folder on GitHub), otherwise you should uninstall the old version first, then install the new version.
