Information

This is the updated version of the Admin Drop Down Menus plugin for WordPress 2.5+. This does everything previous versions did except now they blend with the 2.5 colour scheme and, for the first time, they have ‘click’ menus just like proper PC and Mac menus.

This plugin was created by Andy Staines of www.simplepressforum.com. Due to Andy’s decision to stop development of his various other plugins, in order to concentrate all his efforts on his wonderful Simple:Press Forum plugin, Studiograsshopper became the official home of the Admin Drop Down Menus plugin in August 2008.

Changelog

  • 2.6 Changed version numbering from 3 digits to 2 digits. Functionality unchanged from version 2.5.4.
  • 2.5.4 CSS change to display “out of date” plugins in same style as “Comments awaiting moderation”.
  • 2.5.3 adds ‘right to left’ language support thanks to Hannit Cohen who kindly supplied the extra code and the Right To Left CSS file. Much appreciated it is too.
  • 2.5.2 sorted the Uploader menu bug!
  • 2.5.1 added the Dashboard back into the menu.

Development version

This plugin is no longer in development, as its functionality has been replaced by the new menu system introduced with WordPress 2.7.
