June 11, 2014 — One of the things I do to give my projects a special touch is to style the backend to match my clients’ specific needs. I use a variety of tools to help me out – both beginner and advanced level. And, ever since I started doing it, I’ve fallen more in love with WordPress as an even more COMPLETE website solution.
This presentation looks at just a few ways to bring some magic to the backend of WordPress. It introduces a couple of plugins that can help you manage the admin menu. Then shows you how to easily change the look of your admin pages. Finally, it goes over how to completely replace your dashboard page with custom content and even show you how to change the stuff in that drop-down “help” area on the top right.
