Support » Themes and Templates » Admin like theme for the blog itself (the other way around!)

  • Now this is probably going to sound ridiculous, but I really love the clean-ness of the admin interface of my WordPress blog. I tried a lot of themes, but none of them managed to catch my eye, really. I want to know if there’s any theme that can make my blog look like the default admin theme. Funny? 🙂

    I’ve read a lot of comments from people who hate the original admin interface and want to skin it. Admin Tiger does look pretty nice, but I still feel the original interface looks better. I found a plugin that steals the skin of the blog and puts it on the admin interface, but I want to do the exact opposite. Any plugin or theme out there that lets me do so?

    I’ve been using Blogger for a while now, and since I’m not a compulsive blogger, I loved the simplicity of it and also the fact that it’s owned by Google (might help with SEO?). But after getting a account to try it out last night, I’m sold. I’ve installed WP on my site and I’m in the process of moving all of my blogs (around 5 of them) from Blogger into WP right now.

    Thanks for your help!

  • Hmm. Looking over the Dashboard, I can see how it could be made to fit into a blog form factor rather well. And the components are already there, so it’s not like coding the layout would be all that difficult!

    Yeah, its probably not too difficult to make one, but like most things on the web today, if you can think of it – someone’s already done it, so I figured asking around would be a good idea…

    I couldn’t even imagine that someone would already have made a plugin like vHost. I have around four or five blogs, each of which are for a different purpose and each of them are hosted on their own subdomain. Now that WP has categories and subcategories, I figured I could just put all of that into one blog. But I still wanted the separateness of the earlier setup – not just subdomain access, but also individual look and feel. vHost does just that. Once I get my blog setup, I’ll give vHost a try.

    There is so much WordPress to discover… I feel like I’ve wasted an eternity by sticking to Blogger. Anyway, its never too late. 🙂
