Buff Up Your WordPress Dashboard with Fluency Admin Plugin
WordPress Dashboard, though rich in features, can be somewhat boring, especially if you view it regularly. But fortunately, WordPress is a very popular CMS, for which many plugins are available. There is nothing in the stone, right? Taking advantage of the large plugin list, you can change the look of your WP dashboard and admin area. One such great plugin is Fluency Admin.
The Fluency admin, quite easily, brings the flow of administrative work to your blog. This plugin was created for competition created by WordPress. This competition was centered around developing ‘Dashboard Plugins’ which would enhance the blogger’s admin experience. The plugin was created by Dean Robinson. Since its creation, there have been some changes that make your blogging experience even better.
Why use it?
Regardless of the many updates, the WordPress Administrative Pages have been quite similar in relation to their design. It has always been a boring, brown ISH interface with which you have to work. The default colors are very monotonous, and boring. And there is no crime for people in WordPress, but the WP Blogging interface is not the best. Also, there are a lot of clicks in it, and it slow down the process.
I’m not really a fan of the WordPress interface. When I first used Blogger after WordPress, I was impressed. Who is thinking of me; How can I customize the WordPress interface to see it and perform better? Who lead me to the Fluency Administrator. This is one of the best design related plugins for WordPress.
According to the WordPress site, “Fluency admin promotes the WordPress Admin interface with a new style and some great features.” And there really are some really amazing features in it.
