Clean WP Admin Menu


Most of the plugins and even standart WordPress tabs in the admin menu are not used very often.
With this plugin you can make rarely used items in the admin menu invisible until you need them.
You can just toggle them whenever you need them with Toggle Extra button in the left menu.


  • Select the menu items you want to hide from Settings > Clean Admin Menu

  • Unless they are current active item, selected items will be hidden

  • To see the selected items you can simply press Toggle Extra


  1. Download and activate the plugin.
  2. Browse to the Clean Admin Menu section under Settings to configure.


How does it work

It simply hides&show the elements via css and javascript.


"Toggle Extra" is wonderful

This is a great, simple approach to hiding unwanted menu options. And I love the “toggle extra” feature. With other admin menu edits I’ve used, it’s a pain to restore those hidden menu options temporarily.

Nice and simple. small room for improvements

Excellent little plugin: it conceils seldom used menu items behind a “toggle” button.

Ideas for improvement:
– Allow to set the menus for each role
– toggle fold in/out animation in CSS3 would make the toggle action more palatable.

Don’t hesitate to install it if your admin menu becomes cluttered! (Do remove useless plugins as much as possible beforehand, this plugin only show/hide, optimisation is left to you).
