Hi coders

i have an admin web app in codeigniter that works perfectly but wanted to customize it for each user to have a unique dashboard i.e user A dashboard,
user B dashboard, user C dashboard, etc see below for my code
in my controller folder

public function log(){

$query = $this->login_model->validate_user();

//-- if valid
$data = array();
foreach($query as $row){
$data = array(
'id' => $row->id,
'name' => $row->first_name,
'email' =>$row->email,
'role' =>$row->role,
'is_login' => TRUE
$url = base_url('admin/dashboard');

echo json_encode(array('st'=>1,'url'=> $url)); //--success
echo json_encode(array('st'=>0)); //-- error

What I have tried:

That is way beyond the QA, and even an article.

The concept is that you need to redesign your "method" of rendering a dashboard. Think of it as a grid; NxN grid. Each user can create widgets/components on the screen, you can store how those widget details (their ID, their location, etc.) are stored in the database.

Do not create (hand-craft) the dashboards manually. That will be cumbersome, and not everyone will enjoy a ready-made dashboard. If you do want to do that, create a few 5-7, and let users select from them (a radio-button based list).

But that is way beyond the scope of a QA, check out the guides and tutorials on how other platforms are doing this sort of thing.

One of such platform is with WordPress; they offer a nice control over the widgets: WordPress Widgets |[^]. Secondly, although Microsoft does not explain how to create the underlying framework for "widgets", but they offer a good SDK thought to their dashboard widgets; please see Add a dashboard widget - Azure DevOps | Microsoft Docs[^]
