Why doesn’t something look right?

This is my first admin theme, and given all the various states and pages there are, there’s a good chance I’ve missed some stuff. Please just submit a support ticket if you run into anything wacky.

A Great Plugin To Snuggle Up To

This is my go to plugin for chilly days and days when I am feeling under the weather. Nothing soothes and clears a stuffy head like the Slate Admin Theme with a few dashes of hot sauce! Add some saltines for dipping and you are speaking my language! I love how there seems to be much more white meat in the plugin nowadays.

Great – But one niggle!

This is a great plugin to brand a Site’s admin area.
It would have been a 5 if it wasn’t for one niggle.
If you need to deactivate the plugin (for debug reasons, or other) it loses all the settings, which I found very annoying.
Yes, you can export it and if you read this, do the export first thing when it is set up.
You have to import this each time you deactivate/activate the plugin. without the export, it is a hassle. With it is is a niggle.

Great and Simple

I love it! It’s good, simple, and clean. It makes the WordPress back end look very unique, but also visually clean and streamlined. I think it’s good for branding purposes too, when you need a VERY simple admin area. My only gripe is that as of this writing the most recent version’s padding is off on the Dashboard area “Welcome to WordPress”. Visually, it is somewhat bothersome, but that’s the only issue that I found grating, and it’s really not that big of an issue so… KUDOS!

Beautiful

Really nice one and I will keep it, one issue – doesn’t work with my other color scheme plugin.
