Green Active Plugins!

Description

The WP admin area has so many shades of gray. Sometimes it can be hard to point out which plugins are active or inactive.

This simple plugin changes your plugins screen so you can easily identify active plugins with a coat of green!

FAQ

Okay, so what does this plugin really do?

This is a very small plugin that adds a little CSS to the plugins screen.

Specifically:

  • Active plugins are now colored green, instead of white.
  • Inactive plugins are now white, instead of gray.
  • The plugin update message prompt is now center-aligned, instead of aligned left.
Why green?

It’s a throwback to WP 2.7. I first created this plugin for WP 2.8.
Trivia: It was also my very first plugin! 🙂

Does this plugin do wonders if I’m color-blind?

Probably not. But let me know 😉
