Admin CSS Suggestions

  • I have some suggestions for the Admin CSS.

    • Cleaner look
    • Sans-serif fonts
    • Less of those outlines all over the place

    I’ve made some changes to the current CSS, and put the page up here. Thoughts and comments please?
    And I do realise that a lot of thought went into the current CSS/design. Just making suggestions.

    I like it just the way it is. I do like Sans-serif fonts better however. If it’s possible to have an option somewhere to choose between the two, that’s be nice. However, since people rarely see the ACP, it’s not that big of a deal for me. 🙂

    you are welcome to make whatever stylesheets you like and make them available to everyone. that is the beauty of open source. if there is something you don’t like you can go ahead and change it yourself without having to pester the developers.
    if people like your changes better than the default they will use it, if people prefer the default they can stick with that, if they want balloons and pink bunnies they can make their own stylesheet, and everyone will be happy.


    seraph –
    I like the look – have you made your css available? Does it require modifications elsewhere (WP newbie question)?

    do you mind sharing the code with the rest of us? I like the cleaner look 🙂

    What would be really good would be if Kubrick users had a matching interface for the admin pages, it feels wrong switching from a sleek modern look to a very basic one every time you want to make a post!

    KF – make one then.

    I don’t have Michael’s skills, unfortunately!

    On a mac at least, the Georgia is not easy to read when writing a new piece, and the admin menu is a bit clunky with the “display: inline” making everything look a little awkward. So…
    I’ve made a stylesheet to address these issues, which still uses the blue and grey and still looks like WordPress, just with Lucida or Verdana specified and the menu display edited.
    It works in Safari and Firefox on a Mac, uses “float: left’, “display: block” and “font-size: 1em”; seems to work OK in IE PC but won’t work in Mac IE.
    It’s a stylesheet change only, and y0u can see a screenshot at “www.jamesbisset.com/pics/wp-admin.gif”.
    The styleheet is at “www.jamesbisset.com/wp-admin.css”
    Feel free to fiddle and tweak, though it may be superceded by WP 1.3?

    http://chrisjdavis.org is a good place to check out some serious tweaks to the admin panel.

    Thanks 🙂
    It’s a lovely site, but I couldn’t find anything to do with re-styling the admin css. Do you mean install Persian? I couldn’t find anything else.
    When I first googled for wp-admin.css mods, I could only find complete makeovers. At the moment, being a WP newbie, I’m quite happy with the current interface; I just wanted to get rid of the Georgia and clean up the top menu. So I did it myself.
    Sorry, I managed to cock up my login last night too, so my post was anonymous. And I can use links in here?
