The 2.5 release dramatically changed the layout of the WordPress Dashboard.
This plugin implements an admin theme which results in the Dashboard looking
similar (but not exactly) to how it looked prior to the 2.5 release. This is
implemented using CSS declarations which take precedence over those shipped
This plugin also supports Andy Staines’ Advanced Admin Menus and similarly
employs CSS declarations which take precendence over those shipped with the
plugin. The result is Advanced Admin Menus which look closer to those shipped
in Andy’s pre-2.5 plugin. The required “click” to activate a menu remains.
This plugin has been tested (but not exhaustively) with IE7, Firefox 2.x,
Apple’s Safari all running on the Windows platform. No other testing has
been performed. I personally use IE most of the time but that is largely
due to some thing I use at work which require IE.
