This bar can be hidden using the 'hide information bar' option and reinstated from the settings section under the profile menu.
    2. A link to Edit dashboard - use this to edit the items that appear in the content area of your dashboard. This is edited in the same way as any other page, adding and removing content, and changing the layout.
