At required+ we strive to create a great user experience. We thought about how to improve the WordPress admin and came to the conclusion that we need a better way to manage the core of the WordPress back-end: the admin menu.
This is our take on a simple, lightweight and unobtrusive WordPress admin menu manager. It works like a charm, doesn’t get in your way and doesn’t even require yet another settings page. So if you want a custom tailored admin menu for you or your clients, this plugin is perfect.
Pro tip: Admin Menu Manager works perfectly to get Jetpack out of the way.
You can drag menu items anywhere you want, even from the top level to a sub menu item and vice-versa. Isn’t that awesome?!
Check out this quick demo video of the plugin in action.
We’re already working on version 2.0.0 of this plugin, which will ship with many more features. Soon you’ll be able to:
- Completely remove (and restore) menu items
- Edit existing menu items and their icons
- Add custom items to the admin menu

It's working for me on WP 4.7, nothwithstanding the weak overall structure of my theme. I had to switch to this because Admin Menu Editor has stopped working with latest WP. But I'm as satisfied as before (maybe even better, because you don't need to dive into the plugin settings) and I wonder why it has got so few downloads, whereas it really competes with the mentioned plugin. The possibility of adding more separators and icons will make it a 5-star's (though I read it will come in 2.0 one day).
Super useful and much-needed plugin. (especially if you have a lot of stuff going on in terms of plugins)
Works like a charm! 🙂
