[resolved] Verticle menu in WordPress admin (4 posts)

    Has anyone seen a plugin or hack that will allow a verticle menu in the admin section - one that also lists out the links without having to use a drop down or click on that main menu item? For example:
    Write
    Write Post
    Write Page
    Manage
    Posts
    Pages
    Categories
    Comments
    Awaiting Moderation (0)
    Files
    Backup
    Links

    etc., etc. I've just don't a very entertaining merge of wordpress and cubecart (cubecart isn't live pending ssl) via http://kamalaspa.com, and I'm wondering if it's going to be easier to make cubecart's menu match wordpress or vice versa. I've already styled them to look almost exact save the menu. Thank you!

    You'd just need to hack the wp-admin.css file to change the list declarations maybe.

    Nah, it's a hack I'll have to do to menu-header.php in the admin folder, or a plugin. The PHP is calling the sub options based on the parent menu... anyone have any tips or references to this?

    And a plugin I found:

    This was a perfect basis for doing some major CSS reworking of his code:

    I've emailed the developer of the plugin to see if he wants the CSS as a working alternative. His Javascript lists out all the options for me, otherwise I'd have to hack wp-admin.css heavily like you noted. Thanks!
