dashboard: move bottom left favorite panel to the right hand top side

Is it possible to move the favorite panel from the bottom left to the top right side of the dashboard? Above the default panel on the top right side? I tried it with the documentation but It did not work. Here is the current code:

## This decorator handles a global context, i.e. information which is independent of space.
## Supports modes: 'dashboard', 'userdir', 'rss'.
#set ($mode = $params.get("mode"))
#set ($context = $params.get("context"))
#set ($helper = $params.get("helper"))
#set ($infoPanelWidth = $params.get("infopanel-width"))
#set ($maxFavouritePages = "20") ## Change this value to increase the default number of favourite pages displayed on the Dashboard
#assistiveSkipLink("assistive.skiplink.to.dashboard.recent.updates" "dashboard-recently-updated")
<div class="pagebody">
#parse ( "/template/includes/actionerrors.vm" )
<div class="dashboard">
<div class="dashboard-section">
#if ($mode == "dashboard")
#parse ("/decorators/includes/dashboard-navigation.vm")
<div class="dashboard-group left">
<div class="dashboard-item wiki-content">
<ol id="dashboard-get-started">
#dashboard_renderGlobalActions("dashboardActionsId", ["system.dashboard"] )
#foreach ($webPanel in $webInterfaceManager.getDisplayableWebPanels("atl.dashboard.left", {}))
<div class="dashboard-item">
<div class="dashboard-item">
</div>## left
<div class="dashboard-group right wiki-content">
</div>## right
#if ($params.get("suppress-default-navigation") != "true")
<content tag="content-navigation">
<div id="navigation" class="content-navigation">
<ul class="ajs-menu-bar">
<div class="dashboard-group $!mode">
#if ($infoPanelRequired)
<div style="width: $infoPanelWidth" id="helptd">
#infoPanel(true true true true)
</div><!-- .dashboard-section -->
</div><!-- .dashboard -->
#parse ( "/breadcrumbs.vm" )

Hi Lars,

because of the way the left hand dashboard items are being created, in a loop of velocity code, it may be easier to move the Favourites section using JavaScript.

Try this code in Confluence Administration > Custom HTML > At the end of the BODY

It moves the favourites-spaces-section to the beginning of the dashboard-group right HTML div.

&lt;script type="text/javascript"&gt;
$(document).ready(function() {

You may need to add some CSS styling to space things out a little in that right hand column though.


This is great! And what about moving the whole web panel section (including network, favorites and so on) from left to top right? Can I add more tabs and fill in own stuff and so on? Is there any good documentation? Thanks!

Are there some news about this?
