Clean WP Admin Menu


Most of the plugins and even standart WordPress tabs in the admin menu are not used very often.
With this plugin you can make rarely used items in the admin menu invisible until you need them.
You can just toggle them whenever you need them with Toggle Extra button in the left menu.


  • Select the menu items you want to hide from Settings > Clean Admin Menu

  • Unless they are current active item, selected items will be hidden

  • To see the selected items you can simply press Toggle Extra


  1. Download and activate the plugin.
  2. Browse to the Clean Admin Menu section under Settings to configure.


How does it work

It simply hides&show the elements via css and javascript.


In itself the plugin is simple, and that means other plugins should do the heavy lifting when it comes to changing the WP Admin menu’s. BUT and I can not stress this enough; the toggle option is so damn convenient in combination with them.
This plugin works so much better than any other option, everything is neatly hidden away, and it still allows access to those hidden items whenever you do actually need them. Really smart.
