Spice Up Your Admin Page With ‘Fluency’

February 8, 2011 — 3 Comments

If you are annoyed with the collapsing menus on the left hand side of your WordPress Admin menu, change it out!

Fluency is a really awesome plugin that requires little configuration and adds all sorts of sexiness to your administration back-end. Most bloggers may not care about the look and feel of the admin menu but your client might. The other neat feature is it changes the look of the login screen, and it’s brand-able. You can use your own logo to replace the boring look in the upper left hand side.

Fluency provides the following features:

New features

  • Compatibility with WordPress 3.0
  • Add your own custom link to your custom logo on the WP login page
  • Display your own custom logo at the top of the WP Menu once logged in.
  • Turn Hover menus on/off
  • Turn Hot Keys on/off
  • iPad friendly menus
  • Improved support for Opera 10.5+
  • Added ‘Coffee’ color scheme (set in your profile) (2.3.1)
  • .pot file now included for those wishing to translate Fluency (2.3.1)
  • See changelog for full list of changes/additions

Let’s get it installed and take a look!

As always, please post any questions or comments below and I’ll do my best to get back at all of them!

  1. Hi there love your plugin… just one thing how do you change the color of the login screen… Thanks!

    • Hi Michael, sorry for the ridiculously long reply:

      1. Log into your WordPress website. Click on “Settings.”
      2.Click on “Fluency Options.” This opens the Fluency Admin plugin options panel.
      3.Scroll to the Color Options panel on the bottom part of the Options page.
      4.Click on the color wheel to select your custom Fluency color. If you’d prefer to manually enter an HTML color code, type it into the box.
      5.Click on “Save Options.” The Fluency Admin color scheme changes automatically.
