How and Why to Change Admin Navigation in WordPress1:11 with Zac Gordon
In this introductory video we go over what the admin navigation looks like by default in WordPress and some ways you can go about changing it. We also discuss how if you have custom user roles, those may affect the different users see.
[SOUND] When you login to the WordPress admin area you see a
common set of links down what's called the Admin menu.
These link to posts and pages, media, comments up top.
Appearance, plugins, settings, down below.
As well as the users and tools somewhere in between those.
However, for an average WordPress website owner they don't really need
to see all of these links and all of these options.
And sometimes it's a great solution to simplify that admin menu and
remove everything out of it that that particular user does not need.
So what we're going to look at over the next two videos is
how to do exactly this and begin
customizing what appears in the admin menu.
And we could do this via the functions.php file, and some custom
WordPress code, and we could rely on a plugin to do this.
So, let's jump into the code first and take a look at what
is going on behind the scenes when we remove links from the admin menu.
