Support » Plugin: Header Footer Code Manager » Clutters admin

  • Unfortunately it’s inexcusable these days with all the plugins that people install to place a plugin menu at the top level of the admin menu unless it offers a major piece of site functionality (e.g. wordfence, woocommerce, events, etc). The menu should be under settings or tools. Did not test further.

    Hello @wordcrunch – I’m really not sure how any person can give a 2-star review to a plugin they admit they “did not test further” or use at all.

    Regardless, even though this review is not regarding any functionality of the plugin as you didn’t use it, we’ll reply to this unusual review:

    TOOLS / SETTINGS vs. ADMIN MENU – Please note that you CANNOT easily group multiple page screens and configuration/settings under Settings or Tools. Therefore, it’s not possible to add such a plugin’s settings and core functionality there.
    IMPORTANCE – The Header Footer Code Manager plugin allows you to track, manage & update ALL the snippets that you would like to install on your website at one single place. This feature is very important as now, a user can keep track of major snippets like Google Analytics, Adsense, Tag Manager, Facebook Pixel, Conversion Pixels, and the list goes on. These snippets for an integral part of most online business now and therefore justifying it’s priority. This is the reason, the Header Footer Code Manager plugin is placed on the top level of the admin menu. In short, this plugin is demonstrably more important to a site’s functionality than many other plugins that are on the admin menu. Therefore, we respectfully disagree that it shouldn’t be on the admin menu.

    99Robots has 40 plugins and some of them do use a single settings screen and therefore utilize Tools/Settings because it makes sense. Good developers make judgment calls based on the WP guidelines and structure. This plugin CANNOT be placed there and therefore rightfully has its own menu items in the admin.

    We respect your opinion, but hopefully you understand the reason for the plugin’s menu placement.

    If you’d like to change your review, feel free. Though, we certainly feel it’s quite unwarranted 2-stars. We, and other developers, would like to continue developing and supporting such tools for free. Unfortunately, it still costs us and accurate reviews and valid feedback are necessary.
