Version 1.2.8 of Admin 2020 just landed and oh boy is it a big one! In this article we are going to delve into what’s new, what’s changed and what’s improved.

Overview Page

The overview page has had a lot of attention in this update from new cards, developer hooks and improved analytics.

To start, the dashboard cards can now be arranged however you want simply by dragging and dropping the cards where you want them. This is saved on a user by user level so no two dashboards have to be the same!

We have added two new Google Analytics cards, bounce rate and sources. These help to give an even clear understanding of what is happening on your site. Several other existing cards have also been improved and you can now see how the current periods data compares to the previous period at a glance.

We have also added a developer hook for adding your own custom cards but we will go into detail on that in our developer reference. If you want more info about this please send us a message and we can tell you all about it!


You’ve been asking for it and now it’s here! Admin 2020 now ships with two alternate colour themes! The image above is showing off one of them “Midnight Blue”.

We added a developer hook for adding your own too and there will be more info about that in our developer reference when it’s ready. As per the overview hook, message us if you can’t wait for that!

The Menu Editor in Admin 2020 has had a complete overhaul and is even more powerful than ever!

Not only is the new editor better laid out with an easier to use interface, you can now rearrange your menu items for a completely custom feel. This includes top level items and sub menu items!

Import and Export Settings

The whole settings area of Admin 2020 has been redesigned in version 1.2.8 but that’s not even the best part, you can now easily export your settings and import to another site. No more uploading logos 20 times or settings the same options over and over!

Login Page / Time Out

The login page and time-out login overlay have been enhanced and redesigned to give your website an even more professional feel.

A Few Other Things

Admin notices are annoying, right? We thought so, so you now have an option to get rid of them and clear up your dashboard.

The Original WP admin links now site nicely in the top admin bar and there have been several UI tweaks and redesigns through the plugin.

There has been many other changes in version 1.2.8 and we won’t go into them all here, if you wish to read the change log you can do so here.
