Total Control Administrative Dashboard

What is Total Control?

The Total Control Admin Dashboard creates a default panel page with useful administration tools. Its purpose is to create a central location from which a Drupal site can be properly cared for. Several overview panes are included for site stats and quick reference. Several administration panes are provided with quick links to content types, menus, taxonomy, and other scattered locations of important Drupal site administration. Several views panes are also provided as well as full-page comprehensive versions of the views with bulk operations. Each views panel pane is customizable via it's pane settings, or override the default views provided to suit your own needs.

Why another admin dashboard module?

I evaluated all the other admin dashboards out there and realized that none of them seemed to do much more than take the pre-existing Drupal admin area and display it differently. The Dashboard module in drupal core doesn't actually add anything useful, and is an abomination of the arcane blocks system. This module provides a useful alternative.
