Just recently I launched my latest plugin: WP Custom Admin Interface: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-custom-admin-interface/
This is a free plugin available on the WordPress content management system platform. It is designed to help website administrators better customise the WordPress interface. Why would you want to redesign the WordPress interface you ask? Well firstly sometimes you want to provide special branded experience to clients or customers of your website. You don’t want people to know it’s WordPress website, as this is their website and this is your work. Make it look nice.
Secondly, WordPress itself and external plugins can clutter up the interface, especially the main menu. You want to provide a simple and targeted interface so customers don’t feel overwhelmed. You want to keep the interface as simple and clean as you possibly can. Lastly exposing plugins and other menu items to users can be either a security issue or can present an opportunity for clients or customers to make unintentional changes to your site without your knowledge.
It’s in everyone’s interest to have a dedicated admin menu and to make it look nice in the process and this what WP Custom Admin Interface does so well. I previously used a collection of around 5-6 small plugins to do the equivalent changes but now with this plugin I can do everything with one install. The plugin features a really simple settings export feature which will enable you to deploy settings to multiple websites. This can be really handy for people who manage multiple client websites.
The key feature of the plugin is the admin menu editor. Unlike other free plugins this admin menu editor is fully featured and provides a way show a menu to specific roles or users. So as an administrator you can easily show your custom menu to everyone except administrators so you can access the normal menu whilst everyone else can access the simplified menu.
Below are some of the key features of the custom admin menu builder:
