How to Use WP Adminify to Redecorate Your WordPress Backend
WP Adminify is a comprehensive plugin. But the way of using it is just like any other WordPress plugin out there. Let’s start with installation, and follow that up with the configuration.
Step 1 – Installation
First login to your WordPress Admin Dashboard and navigate to Plugins > Add New.
Now click on Upload Plugin and choose the plugin file. Install the plugin afterwise.
(You can purchase and download the plugin file from the WP Adminify website. There is also a free version on the WordPress repository.)
After that, activate the plugin and the plugin should automatically transform your dashboard right after.
Step 2 – Activate License
Once you install the pro version of the plugin, it should automatically redirect you to the license page. If it does not, just click on WP Adminify Pro from the menu.
Step 3 – Setting Up
Since there are a lot of features in WP Adminify pro, we are not going to show each of them. But tweaking the settings is as easy as just toggling a button as you can see from the image of the settings page below.
WP Adminify – Pros & Cons
The plugin is well-equipped with quality features, as you can see from the features we shared above. But we understand that you might still be looking for specific pros and cons before you choose the plugin.
- It is quite obvious that WP Adminify is one of the most feature-rich plugins when it comes to WordPress Dashboard Customization plugins.
- WP Adminify is very easy to use, and the features are well-described and organized.
- The UI is soothing. Moreover, different color schemes to customize the UI are a big plus.
- The dark mode option is available.
- Multiple add-on tools like PageSpeed score, activity logs, and header footer code inserter.
- The plugin is a bit heavy, consuming 2880.81 KB of memory. This may impact your site speed a bit.
- The pricing is on the higher side compared to the other plugins of this category (although there are additional features that you would miss on other plugins).
WP Adminify Pricing
WP Adminify has four different pricing plans. The Personal, Business, and Agency plan cost $99, $129, and $249 respectively. Additionally, you can also contact them for a customized Enterprise plan.
While all the plans have access to almost all the features, personal and business plan users will miss the white-level branding.
WP Adminify is a bit costlier than most of its competitors. But it is more than just an admin customizer, as it also provides some out-of-the-box features that will make your dashboard experience more immersive.
Time to Customize Your WordPress Admin Dashboard
WordPress Admin Dashboard is not everything we want it to be. You should be able to add widgets that let you take a peak at key things of your WordPress site. However, that is not possible by default.
WP Adminify is an excellent plugin that lets you do this customization on your WordPress admin dashboard and personalize it according to your preference. With WP Adminify, your dashboard actually becomes your dashboard.
