Can you do it better?

I would greatly appreciate it if you kindly give me some feedback on this 😉


I love this plugin!!

I am designer and I believe the design matters. In this case, matters and work! Nice job, absolutely I love this plugin! Thank you!

Not there yet

I tested every single Admin plugin out there and ‘Flatty’ wins by billions of miles.

Unfortunately the plugin is not Multisite compatible, which means settings on the main site will not reflect on sub-sites.

Apart from that it does not play well with ‘Gravity Forms’. As soon as you navigate to Gravity Forms from the WordPress menu, the dashboard switches back to default settings.

Removing the navigation from the login screen (Lost password etc.) also had to be done through CSS, because the settings in Flatty did not quite do the job.

I really hope Flatty becomes Multisite compatible and the other minor bugs are flattened : ). Love the plugin and can’t wait to give it that 5 star rating it deserves.

Still kinda beta, but i like it!

I love this plugin, but i cant use it for my clients – since i cant find a .mo and .po file to translate the english 🙂

I would also love the option to change the topbar font colors – so it would fit my companies profile.

Last but not least, i would like the topbar to be fixed, it looks kinda silly that when the sidebar stands alone 🙂

But the overall look is great, would use it on all of my client sites if these feature were added!

Ps. It would also be great with an export function, so that it would be fast to setup on all client sites.

I’m loving it

Great Job, does well what it states. Not a mandatory plugin but gives a new look to the backend. Just can’t get back to normal WordPress dashboard once you have it installed… In my case once installed on one site had to install it on several other 🙂

Logo Upload doesn’t work

The button simply doesn’t react.
Also it would be cool if there would be more options to change the buttons on top, in the side bar depending on the kind of user. Furthermore I miss an option to change the background colour without having to write CSS.

Generally a very good idea for a plugin but still needs a lot of work for me to give 5 stars (I’m happy to come back).

Messes up my admin

I dont know if its just not compatible with visual composer but even when i switch on the ‘Disable Flatty’s “new post” styling’ the editor is basically broken, cant use it. And the viz composer is not available, still.

Nice idea but viz composer is a standard now, you need to work with it folks!

I really wish someone would crack this as a good admin is really needed, we are willing to pay good money!!
