Background

While every plugin adds functionality to your website, these plugins also add items to the admin menu list which are seldom used. Your admin menu consequently becomes cluttered and difficult to navigate. This easy to use plugin removes the clutter without removing any of the functionality in the admin menu. All the commands remain right there for you to use when you need them.
A tidy workspace allows you to focus on the things that matter
This plugin is ideal for developers or admins who want the editors or contributors of the website to remain focussed on the elements that they should be using to update or to contribute to the website.
