Wider Admin Menu

Make the Admin Menu wider to accomodate long menu items.

I don't need a plugin. Can I just add some code to my stylesheet?

Sure. That's actually how this plugin started out. If you simply need a wider admin bar and you're cool with CSS then try this:

Look in the plugin's /css folder for the file wider-admin-menu.css.

Then either copy its contents to your theme's stylesheet,


copy the file to your theme folder and add this to your theme's functions.php to load it:

function wider_admin_menu() {
  wp_enqueue_style( 'wider-admin-menu', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/wider-admin-menu.css' );
add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'wider_admin_menu' );

That covers WordPress 3.8 and up. For WordPress 3.5 to 3.7.1, substitute wider-admin-menu-35.css. For WordPress 3.3 to 3.4.2, substitute wider-admin-menu-33.css.

Leave no trace? What's that about?

Some plugins and themes don't fully uninstall everything they installed - things like settings, database tables, subdirectories. That bugs me. Sometimes, it bugs your WordPress too.

As a WordPress mechanic, I think the best reason for leaving no trace is to make it easier to debug wonky behavior later.

So this plugin will completely remove itself upon deletion. Deactivating the plugin will leave the settings intact, though. As an added bonus, you can switch off "Leave No Trace" so the settings remain after deletion, if you want.

I have a feature request.

Please use the support forum or contact me.
