ReDesigning Dashboard or Admin UI

  1. RaminMT


    I think after this much time we spent it's time to have some changes on admin UI
    Approximately most of wordpress users believed in having some changes in dashboard and having new UI or maybe some extra API to let users change as they want.

    tnx :)

    How about massive changes to the media uploader? :) UI improvements are n the radar.

    What sort of API changes/improvements do you have it mind? I've been seeing a lot of people say we need more, but then they never quantify that statement.

    You know it's not completely my opinion however I like it too.
    If You view Farsi forums You will see most of the users are agree there. I told them to submit their idea here but they told me we're not that much professional in English so I submitted.
    But according to users mentions I get that they need changes not improvement. For example make themes for it and ability to change them or API's to make some other new themes as my friends did in Venus plugin.
    I hope you get what I mean :)

    and I know media uploader have goten some changes in WP 3.5

    I don't disagree at all :D I'm just asking for more details on what you mean.

    For example: You say 'APIs to make new themes' but what do you mean by that? I get that you're making a high-level comment 'APIs would make it easier!' But that's really broad.

    We have a Theme Customization API that devs can hook into, in order to make customizing their themes easier for the users. And that's the sort of example that helps people understand what you're thinking about :)

    And "some changes in dashboard" is also really vague. Like what? We really do want to know, but we can't read your mind, so what are they thinking about specifically? It could be as simple as "I'd like to reorder my menus" or "I think we need a totally new posting interface" or even "It should be easier for the end-user to make a new dashboard widget."

    You know for example for front-end We have some APIs for making new themes and also lots of themes as i my self make themes for wordpress but in back-end we have this UI for far.
    I mean for many years we have this UI for back-end I speak about the graphics always we have these colors and existing style for menus.
    As You know humans like difference I meant this by "some changes in dashboard" and the API I've mentioned relates to this I think It's not a bad idea to let users have different UI for their admin panel they style and order as they want, style It as they are more comfortable

    I guess what RaminMT is trying to say is that WordPress developers need some sort of API for the backend area. Similar to the front-end API, a way to be able to change the whole admin area to suit the needs of a client/user.
    Because when you are developing a theme for a client there are times when you only need to enable specific options or design.

    Here is an example called Pickle of how a WordPress backend area was totally changed to match the front-end of the website.

    Again, RaminMT's idea is awesome and we hope to see it incorporated in the future (even if the post was posted two years ago :)
