CMS Dashboard

Description

Improve the usability of your WordPress CMS system. This plug-in creates a dashboard widget with clearly labeled large buttons of the most common tasks one would perform when using wordpress as a content management system.

I have found that particularly when handing a WordPress CMS over to less than tech-savvy clients, there is often confusion on how to perform some of the more simple tasks simply because the WordPress side menu can be overwhelming. This plugin creates a simple to use dashboard interface that will let clients easily post, edit, manage users and change widgets with out having to do any hunting or searching.

Screenshots

  • The dashboard has a clear simple to use interface for using WordPress as a content management system.
  • Options to turn on / off buttons as necessary.
