I don’t think this plugin in usefully like this and it’s free !. I’ll donate this plugin anytime from now I swear ! Among 5 best WordPress plugin in this world now !
I use this plugin on most of my sites to setup the admin area for clients who need restricted access and don’t need to see superfluous main menu items, admin bar drop-downs menus etc.
I don’t style anything with this plugin except for replacing the login logo so I can’t say too much in that regard, but for removing elements to simplify your clients admin area it does the job brilliantly.
Great job on this plugin! …. so nice.
Extensive modifications possible, great, but somehow unable to change login screen background. One star less, too bad.
Without admin menu items reorder this plugin is useless.
Je ne regrette en aucun cas mon investissement dans le thème Dune, c’est un régal de travailler sur mon site : une admin très claire et ordonnée contrairement au TdB WordPress et sa barre fourre tout ! Essayez cette extension, nul doute que vous ne pourrez plus vous en passer (je crois bien que je vais m’en payer un autre)

Big fan of your administration themes, I bought my second today.
These themes would be very useful for me, because the administration of my site will be accessible to many actors according with their role. Very good job, deserves encouragements!
