Sort Admin Menus


This plugin sorts the items in the “Tools” and “Settings” dashboard menus in alphabetical order. Useful when you have lots of plugins installed and very cluttered menus as a result. The plugin should work well with most “drop-down menu” plugins and other visual enhancements.

You can configure which menus are sorted by editing the source code. Yes, hackety-hack 🙂


To install the plugin follow these steps :

  1. Download the file to your local machine.
  2. Unzip the file
  3. Upload “sort-admin-menus” folder to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

That’s all. You might need to reload the page before menus will appear sorted.



This should be part of WordPress … 10 years ago already! This plugin is such a blessing. Especially with 10+ plugins. Or 50-60 in our case.
