Expanding on this question here: dashlet creation
If I wanted to create my own dashlet with somewhat static content I'm wondering how that is accomplished, I have a loose idea below but not sure if it is correct.
How do I register the dashlet itself, since I won't be starting from a report - can I add a row to the database itself?
That row in the database would then point to a URL similar to the others (i.e. civicrm/dashlet/blog?reset=1). If I point to my own /dashlet/goodinfo... do I need to create both a supporting tpl and php file (kept neatly in a custom/override folder) or will a tpl file suffice?
I may be headed down an entirely incorrect path - open to suggestions!
