Support » Plugin: All in One SEO Pack » Please improve the menu set-up of your plugin

  • I’m hoping you’ll consider looking at the way you add your plugin’s menu structure to WP Admin.

    For a start, you push yourself to the top (yes, I know others do this and they’re as guilty too). Can you drop your plugin down to a move suitable location on the menu list?

    Secondly, can you reconsider the red, bold ‘Upgrade to Pro’ sub-menu too? Depending on your Admin Colour Scheme, this can look hideous and you’ve not considered this. Default WordPress menus are monochrome and adjust automatically to any colour scheme change – can you please do this? I understand you want to push your pro option but a more considered approach would be appreciated here.

    Thank you.

    Hi David,

    First of all, I’d like to thank you for your feedback. User feedback is the best way we’re able to grow and improve according to user needs.

    For the menu issue, there’s an easy code snippet you can use to demote the menu. Our documentation on this is here: https://semperplugins.com/documentation/remove-all-in-one-seo-pack-from-top-of-menu/

    For the second one, I’ve opened a Github issue here: https://github.com/semperfiwebdesign/all-in-one-seo-pack/issues/2864
    Feel free to include any additional feedback directly on the Github issue (requires creating a free Github account).

    Thanks Michael.

    Thanks. But don’t you think you’d be better doing this by default? A lot of users are not going to be in a position to deploy code like this themselves.

    Could you express to me why you think this plugin should push Posts and Pages down the menu list?

    I’ve done that now, including a nice screenshot. Thanks for this.

    Probably the same reason your company (Automattic) does it with its plugin, Jetpack. 😉

    Low blow that Michael and totally un-necessary.

    I can’t speak for the Jetpack team, which I’m not involved with, but I, personally, don’t believe Jetpack should be at the top either.

    Hugs all around and let’s all of us take a deep breath: I happen to know that no one here meant anything along the lines of ill will or low blows. It’s just a conversation and that’s all.

    Can we just do a reset on the topic? There’s no customers here and let’s leave Jetpack out of this topic.

    Jan, as usual (although his wife may disagree), is right. Let’s move on or, rather, rewind back to where we were.

    If the answer is ‘I like the menu at the top’ then that’s fine – I’m just curious as to why it is. I’m just going through a number of plugins that do things to the menu that I don’t like (and I appreciate it’s a personal thing, which is why I’m trying, as much as I can, to bring some reasoning to it – as per the coloured sub-menu option) and calling them out to the developers. After all, if you don’t say anything, nothing is ever likely to change.

    The thing is, if all plugins did this, that would be really annoying, as you’d have to scroll down the page just to find your posts. I’m a plugin developer myself and are very mindful of how I do these myself.

    I hope setting the scene helps 🙂
