Revised Admin Interface

  1. GuruXL


    I think we need a new admin interface, it time that a new CSS and layout be created for the script. I think the Developers should look at some of the other popular scripts like Expression Engine, Moveable Type and see some of the best practices and implement them in a new Interface, this could be for the next 2.9 version.

    WordPress 2.9 is feature frozen, so you won't see a new admin for that version.

    Could you expand on your idea and explain what needs to be changed and why?

    Right now, everything is spread out across multiple drop-down boxes. You have to consider the most frequently accessed options (create/edit page or create/edit templates) and make those the central tabs and buttons that stand out. Have developers look at other admin interfaces and follow the best practices among the blog/CMS community.

    In addition, for organizing pages, you need to be able to drag and drop them into any order you specify, right now having to go into each individual page and then choose a number, you have to memorize how many pages you have and then what order they are in. Why not make it easier by being able to click on the page and drag them into the order you need them.

    Finally, you should be able to choose how many pages or posts you want to display on any page, and the search box should be featured more prominently so you can quickly find the page, or post you need.

    We will not be redesigning the admin interface anytime in the near future, as 2.7 is intended to be the foundation for the next several years. There are a number of plugins that will change the look of the admin interface, such as Ozh's drop-down menus and Fluency.
