Mobile Responsive App style admin interface

Like WordPress we believe that a3rev plugin users should be able to configure and tweak our plugins settings while on the go, right from their mobile or tablet. This plugins features an app style admin interface with Switches, Sliders and a smart interface that hides associated settings when a feature is not turned ON.

  • 100% compatible with WordPress v3.8.0 admin interface.
  • Backward compatibility to WordPress v3.5.0
  • App style admin interface.
  • Admin app interface is fully mobile and tablet responsive.

Lite & Pro Version Admin Interface

  • All a3rev Lite Version plugins have exactly the same admin interface as the Pro Version.
  • Pro Version features and settings are easy to spot on the admin dashboard, Predictive Search Widget and shortcode pop-up as they are inside of a Yellow border.
  • The Pro Version settings are all active on the admin panels so they can be used to get a great idea of how they work and what is available BUT the settings do not save when changes are saved and hence are not applied to the front end.
  • Upgrading to the Pro version activates all the Pro version Features and Settings and removes the Yellow side bar and borders.
