New plugin : BM Admin Tweak

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned how I have customised my wordpress administration interface to make it more streamlined and usable. This is an interface I made for myself so it works the way I want it too – however I had a couple of people say they liked the look of it and wanted me to release it as a plugin… so here it is.

Before anyone downloads it I would like to point out that this was made for me. Whilst there are features you may like if they don’t benefit me and I can’t add them in 10 minutes or so then I won’t be adding them. For example when I announced the theme on Twitter I got a comment saying it doesn’t work with Ozh Dropdown Admin Menu – I have spent about half an hour looking at it and I can see no easy way to either replicate Ozh dropdown menu, or to work around the problem within bm-admin-tweak – so I’m not going to do anything (sorry Danny :S )… that said… never say never. Maybe when I get some free time I’ll give it another go.
