Plugin Directory

Admin Menu Editor

Lets you edit the WordPress admin menu. You can re-order, hide or rename menus, add custom menus and more.

Normal installation

  1. Download the admin-menu-editor.zip file to your computer.
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. Upload the admin-menu-editor directory to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  4. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.

That's it. You can access the the menu editor by going to Settings -> Menu Editor. The plugin will automatically load your current menu configuration the first time you run it.

WP MultiSite installation

If you have WordPress set up in Multisite ("Network") mode, you can also install Admin Menu Editor as a global plugin. This will enable you to edit the Dashboard menu for all sites and users at once.

  1. Download the admin-menu-editor.zip file to your computer.
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. Create a new directory named mu-plugins in your site's wp-content directory (unless it already exists).
  4. Upload the admin-menu-editor directory to /wp-content/mu-plugins/.
  5. Move admin-menu-editor-mu.php from admin-menu-editor/includes to /wp-content/mu-plugins/.

Plugins installed in the mu-plugins directory are treated as "always on", so you don't need to explicitly activate the menu editor. Just go to Settings -> Menu Editor and start customizing your admin menu :)

Notes * Instead of installing Admin Menu Editor in mu-plugins, you can also install it normally and then activate it globally via "Network Activate". However, this will make the plugin visible to normal users when it is inactive (e.g. during upgrades). * When Admin Menu Editor is installed in mu-plugins or activated via "Network Activate", only the "super admin" user can access the menu editor page. Other users will see the customized Dashboard menu, but be unable to edit it.
