In this article we will show you how to use Admin Menu Editor to change the formation at your Admin Panel.

Please note: For this article you will need to install the Admin Menu Editor plugin.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On your admin panel, click on Settings >> Menu Editor.


Step 3) The layout of your Admin Panel – including any plugins you have installed already – will be shown in the Menu Editor page. Click on Settings at the top of the page to set up the plugin.


Step 4) The Menu Editor settings allow you to change the access settings. Change the settings accordingly. You can also change multisite settings to change the Admin Panel of all your connected sites, or stick to per site editing. The colour scheme and interface can be changed from this page, and a debugging menu can be set to show any changes made by all users with access.


Step 5) When you have finished with the settings, head back to the Menu Editor page. As you can see, it is laid out exactly the same as your Admin Panel on the left.


Step 6) You can cut, copy and paste any menu items, delete them, and add your own menus to the panel using the options at the top of the page.


Step 7) If you click on any of the menu items (see Dashboard below), you can edit various sections of the Menu, including the Title, the Target page (Dashboard takes you to the Dashboard if you click on it, etc.). You can also change the capability, so that other users can read or edit the Menu. There is also an option to change the logo that sits alongside the menu item (to the left of its title).


Step 8) Use the drag and drop functionality to change the layout of your Admin Panel as you see fit. Once you swap it around, click on Save Changes to the right to set them in place.


Step 9) On the right-hand side, you can save your settings, undo the changes you have just made, or revert back to the default menu (how you found it on day one) by using the options provided.
