September 19, 2019 — In this talk, we will review a series of code snippets designed to make the WordPress Admin Panel a custom place, powerful and easy to use, and all without using plugins. After this talk, you will want to add it to your toolbox for reuse in each site. Simple tasks, such as adding a logo and customizing the login screen, making the content editor reflect the appearance of your site and adding your company’s contact information on each page and then to the more complex task of adding fields Classifiers and filters to navigate better content in the back-end, as well as the creation of widgets in the WordPress welcome panel.

October 14, 2017 — A few events recently occurred: a WordPress developer posted a screenshot on Twitter of the WP Admin of a website he’d just taken over. It was also the day I handed over a site to one of my clients. While I was explaining them where to find what in WP Admin, it struck me: there seemed to be no logic in a lot of the menu-items at all!
While we’ve all been busy designing websites with a focus on the front end, we seemed to have lost track of usability when developing extra functionality for the back end of WordPress, WP Admin. New menu items created by plugins, seem to be all over the place, not to mention the notifications that come with them.
Even though most of us are working with WordPress on a daily basis, taking over a website developed by another company isn’t always easy. So imagine what it is like for someone with less experience.
This talk is a first analyses on the WP admin of a WordPress website, that has the most popular plugins installed. It also presents findings of research done amongst plugin developers, on how they decide how and where the menu of a plugin should appear. Finally, I’m encouraging WP Admin users to participate in an online user test, that will help us to create a foundation for a more user friendly WP Admin.

December 18, 2016 — In an ever-growing WordPress ecosystem, both the number and scale of companies using WordPress for their online operations are expanding rapidly. Providing your client’s visitors with a usable, accessible and good-looking frontend to their website is usually concern number 1. But should it be? Often, the usability of the WordPress backend is overlooked by developers, and choices pondered on by core developers for months are negated by developers overloading the admin panel with useless menu items, options and data — resulting in a complete lack of insight.
In this talk, I will discuss with you the need of building WordPress websites and web applications that are not only usable to its visitors, but also to its users — be it administrators, content editors or developers. I will walk you through the why and how of improving your WordPress backend experience using plugins and custom code (specifically, the menu API and the columns API), lead by my experience as a developer for clients and as a former co-author of the Admin Columns plugin.

April 15, 2015 — The WordPress Administration area is no walk in the park. Just because it’s, perhaps, the most user-friendly of the big CMSs doesn’t necessary make it objectively easy to use. All sorts of things that can seriously break your site are mixed in with trivial options. And, once you start adding robust plugins, things can get complicated fast.
There are many ways to make WordPress more palatable for the common user (see: non-developers) and reduce the risk of big-time accidents. In this session, I’ll show you how easy it is to remove things users don’t need from the admin area—all with your own plugin.
Don’t worry if you haven’t written a plugin before. Not only will I give you the working plugin to start with, but I’ll explain everything along the way.
Let’s make WordPress just a little easier and safer for everyone!
