Hi, your article was featured in Zite, nice feat, congratulations :)

I liked Fluency very much, but it’s not compatible with newer WP versions…
The new kid on the block is MP6: http://wordpress.org/plugins/mp6/

Adminimize is a must, love it and have it in all my sites.

And I’ll shamelessly plug myself here: Admin Tweaks – http://wordpress.org/plugins/many-tips-together/

Cheers from Spain :)

Wow Ahmed,
I am just starting out with WordPress (recently migrated from Blogger), but I have never heard that we can even customize the admin dashboard with plugins.
At the moment I am trying to keep the number of plugins used to the minimum, so will give these a miss now. But if the dashboard becomes a bore to the eyes, will have to try out one of these.

    Ahmed Safwan July 7, 2013

    I’m sure you’re going to love these sourav.

Mani July 8, 2013

Frankly, i never tried any of these plugins as i thought it sum up number of plugins, will affect loading time of the blog .. but let me try the #1 adminize plugin for a while ..

Thanks Dude for this tips .

Edson Hale July 8, 2013

All the 5 are brilliant, I tested the top three and results are amazing. But one need them after years of continuous blogging because after that you develop taste for every aspect of your work and need something new to avoid boredom. In initially days we remain engross in labyrinths of blogging so much so that we don’t need anything to refine our vision and just do this and that to grab the right track.

Gary July 10, 2013


I had no idea about Adminimize. It looks like I could get some really great use out of this one. I have been wanting to be able to hid things for a while now. I had no idea it was possible. So thanks for this post. I really do appreciate it. That is why I love this blog. There are always so many great tips.
