Last Updated: September 8, 2019

Latest News: I updated the information.

When it comes to managing your WordPress admin panel you need good plugins to do the job. I think it is best to always use a plugin instead of hacking WordPress core files. Most users are not developers and they solely rely on great plugins to do the job.

The following list of plugins will help you manage all different kinds of admin features in WordPress in the backend and more.

Admin Plugin List

  • Admin Menu Editor
  • Conditional Menus
  • Remove Dashboard Access
  • Adminimize
  • BussinessPress
  • WP Admin UI
  • My WP Customize
  • Theme My Login
  • LoginPress
  • Dynamic Widgets
  • Change Password Protected Message
  • Advanced Excerpt

Information: Always remember to try and not have too many plugins added to your website or blog. The more plugins you add the more request and processing resources it requires to use from your server!!!
