Manage WordPress Admin Plugins provides a list of plugins that will help you manage different admin backend features and more.

Last Updated: July 8, 2024

Latest News: Updated the version 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
  • Admin and Site Enhancements (ASE)
  • Remove Dashboard Access
  • Adminimize
  • BussinessPress
  • My WP Customize
  • Theme My Login
  • LoginPress
  • Widget Options
  • 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!!!

Advanced Excerpt

This plugin adds several improvements to WordPress’ default way of creating excerpts.

  1. Keeps HTML markup in the excerpt (and you get to choose which tags are included)
  2. Trims the excerpt to a given length using either character count or word count
  3. Only the ‘real’ text is counted (HTML is ignored but kept)
  4. Customizes the excerpt length and the ellipsis character that are used
  5. Completes the last word or sentence in an excerpt (no weird cuts)
  6. Adds a read-more link to the text
  7. Ignores custom excerpts and use the generated one instead
  8. Theme developers can use the_advanced_excerpt() for even more control (see the FAQ)
