Yesterday we released version 2.3 (changelog here) of UiPress and as you may have guessed from this post title, we have launched our custom admin pages feature! Building this feature has been on our roadmap for a long time and we are super excited for people to finally be able to use it.

When we started building this, we wanted the experience to be as streamlined as possible and work the same as making any other page or post in WordPress. I’m happy to announce that UiPress’ admin pages work exactly like that, you can use Gutenburg, classic editor, Elementor, Oxygen or pretty much any page builder just like you would for your other content.

Another key focus of ours for this feature was allowing you to create admin pages from the primary network site (multisite) and make them available to your subsites. We were able to achieve this and applying the pages site wide is just a toggle away.

Another often requested feature is better white label options – we heard you and we rolled out our first set of features to allow you to white label UiPress.

The first option allows you to change the name of UiPress to anything you want. This will allow you to better align UiPress with your brand.

Secondly, we have added an option allowing you to hide UiPress from the plugin table, great if you don’t want your clients accidentally deactivating UiPress or you don’t want them to know you are using UiPress.

Front End Admin Menu

Another feature that we feel will open up all sorts of possibilities is the ability to load the admin menu on the front end. This can bring a consistent navigation experience when logged into your site and allow you to navigate your site tasks much quicker.
