Support » Plugin: Fluency Admin » [Plugin: Fluency Admin] Fix for this (now unsupported) plugin…

  • Tom


    Having many sites using this plugin and after no update for a very long time, I decided that editing the plugin myself was the only option (other than removing it from all sites and writing my own version)… The latter would have been a waste of time really, since Fluency only needed a small edit to get it working again (for my needs, at least).

    Depending on how you’re using this plugin, you may find my “fix” helpful.

    All I done was edit the wp-admin.css file (located in /wp-content/plugins/fluency-admin/css/)..


    #adminmenu li.wp-has-submenu:hover .wp-menu-arrow, #adminmenu li.wp-has-submenu.hovered .wp-menu-arrow {
    	cursor: auto;
    	display: block;
    	position: absolute;
    	right: -9px;
    	top: 0;
    	z-index: 25;
    #adminmenu .wp-menu-arrow div {
    	width: 16px;

    Replace with:

    #adminmenu li.wp-has-submenu:hover .wp-menu-arrow, #adminmenu li.wp-has-submenu.hovered {
    	display: none;

    Now go to the Fluency Admin settings and uncheck the “Hover menus” box, then click save. Job done

    Hope that helps some of you

  • Hey Tom, any chance of updating this fix? Sub-menues are white on white. Anyhoo, thanks!



    Actually I’ve been actively updating the plugin and using it on my own/ clients websites, however to be honest I can’t for the life of me remember which files or code I’ve edited over the last few months so it’s difficult for me to simple paste code here.

    I’d be happy to give you a copy of the current version I’m using but I’m not sure I’m able to provide a link to it on here? I think if people were allowed to share such files here, the system could be abused as you’d end up with kiddie-hackers sharing plugins containing nasties..

    I’m also reluctant to publish my email address here. If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears

    Ps. I’m not even sure how the original plugin author would feel about me sharing my ‘re-work’ of his plugin

    Hello, one of the main advantages of GNU / GPL is that you can edit the coding and provide updated versions. This is ideally used in cases such as this when the plugin has fallen into disrepair.
    If you can contact me via and we can provide a mirror or put it on the wordpress repository. Another option would be to add it to a site like dropbox.
    Please let me know wherever we can help as it seems this is a really good option for wordpress and there are no other options like it.

    Best wishes




    Sorry for the delayed response but I’ve been busy..

    @couponcodeplugin – I’m happy to send you a copy for you to do as you wish with it, however I’ve stopped using it now and I last updated it around 3 weeks ago.

    The only functions of it that I was using in the end was the styling for the menu’s.. but I’m now using this instead:

    I suggest you check it out and then if you would still like a copy of my version of Fluency Admin, just let me know and I’ll get in touch with you via your contact form
