🥁 What is this?

In short: a prototype.

✅ This plugin minimises the WordPress admin menu to five (5) top-level items.
✅ It remixes submenus and adds some former top-level items to them.
✅ Finally, it bundles all third-party settings pages on a dedicated submenu page. No more plugins in the top level.
🚫 This is not an admin menu editor of any sorts.
🚫 There are no options for you to customise what goes where.
🎳 You’re free to fork this, clone it, hack it to pieces, make your own out of it.

💡 Installation

If you don’t know what a .zip file is, or how to upload one to WordPress, make sure you have a WordPress-savvy person nearby before you proceed, or you might end up breaking your website.

Will this be available via WordPress.org?

No plans in that direction, but you can use the GitHub Updater plugin.

Will it work with…?

It will work with a lot of (if not most) plugins and themes, but the question is: will it be pratical?

This plugin relies on core strings where possible, but it also does introduce a few strings of its own. These are translation-ready, a text domain gets loaded, and a .pot file is provided.
