Reviews

I kept on thinking of making something like this….

Believe me or not, I wanted to make this plugin but Thorsten made it and he’s done a far more smarter job than what I was thinking. I was thinking of doing a far more complex job, however Thorsten did a smarter job of just hiding and revealing.

5 stars for the fact that it does what its supposed to and I wish I could give one or two more stars for smartness behind it!

Great work, Thorsten

Wonderful work. We’ve built something similar inside our BusinessPress plugin (also manages updates, exposes hidden preferences & reduces WordPress branding). It would be great to join forces in fighting evil admin plugin notifications. Keep up the great work making WordPress the publisher-friendly CMS it deserves to be.
