Why Many Tips Together? And why change its name to Admin Tweaks?

The first version of the plugin was a compilation of snippets.
It evolved to a General Admin Tweak plugin.
Most of the users who left feedback complained about it: too cryptic and hard to find.
Well, I agree, but I’m just changing the Display Name.
The Repository URL, Directory Name and Database Option Name are still keep original name.

Multisite

The MS features appear in the main site Admin Tweaks screen, there’s no Network screen for it.
They are only visible to super admins and in the main site settings page.
Although fully functional, all this would be better as a separate plugin that can be network activated.
Consider the MS features available right now as an experiment subject to removal in favor of a new plugin.

Login CSS

Try disabling the default styles and paste this example. It’s a bit of a mess of styles, but can give you some ideas.
