This plugin is a secret; don’t tell anybody about it. Don’t use it with WordPress 3.8 or higher.

Simplifying the wp-admin UI is a challenging task, as flattening the icons showed us when you improve one thing it just makes all of the other out of date elements stand out more.

Trunk isn’t terribly well-suited for UI iteration, so this plugin is a chance for us to rapidly iterate in a way people can use and test some new ideas for how to visually tie together the aesthetics of our current wp-admin UI.

Existence of this plugin will be officially denied, but discussion will happen at if you’d like to participate. All comments and contributions are welcome, though we’re leaving the final call on decisions to MT.

(MP6 doesn’t stand for anything.)



Thanks to you, new admin UI in 3.8 looks really awful! Oh people, when you will just stop copying Microsoft’s waste and use no-name fonts? Another blind mass hysteria.


Hello. Just updated to 3.8 version and vomited.

Hello, design from just-after-millenuum. Ugly fonts, dark and eyes-wrestling navigation… And I clearly remember that there was a plugin for wordpress 2.x which made admin area look exactly same.

Oh, here it is.


But this old plugin looks better the wordpress looks now.

What’s with new clean style of navigation from Google and Apple? Why did you return to design 5 years older?

Please return admin style from 3.7 and leave this old shitty design in this plugin –

Love It!

I absolutely love MP6. Since found it via a WPMU blog post I have installed it on every site I have. I just love it!
