CMS-Like Admin Menu


Want to run a simple website using WordPress as a CMS, but don’t want (or need) the Post functionality? This is the plugin for you. This plugin rewrites the Admin menu link order to show the Pages menu item first instead of posts, while leaving the ability to deal with posts intact. It’s a fairly simple little hack, but if you need it, here it is.

You can find the plugin home page (and leave comments) here.


There is no usage per se, since all the plugin does is change the menu order on the Admin menu. If you see the Pages menu item at the top of the admin menu, the plugin is working.


  • New menu order after activating plugin.


  1. Upload cms-menu.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate CMS-Like Admin Menu through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
