Fancy Admin UI

Description

WordPress’s admin themes are great, but we wanted to take it a step further. This is a clean blue/gray theme by default for the admin panel that simplifies the interface and makes things more accessible for our customers. Customize your colors by visiting Settings > General

If there are any features you’d like to see or bugs with other plugins – visit the support tab and let me know.

Improvements made

  • Blue AdminBar for front and backend of site
  • Soft Gray menu
  • Larger Calls to Action within Edit screens
  • Ability to change custom primary/secondary colors
  • Mobile Menu compatibility

Screenshots

  • Screenshot of the basic admin panel

Installation

  1. Upload fancy-admin-ui to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Set your custom colors via Settings > General

Be sure to check your login page because the default WP logo is a light blue and doesn’t match. I did wrap the standard WP logo in a white rounded rectangle so it should show up without any issue on any color.
