Abandon Themes Admin


This is a WordPress plugin aimed at template designers who have mid range experience of PHP and theme development or experienced designers who want to speed up their workflow. What it does is let you add an options page to your theme with a host of various options to improve its functionality. All you need to do is add a short function in your themes functions.php file to turn on the features you want to use.


  • Here’s how the options look in the admin panel with everything turned on screenshot-1.(png|jpg|jpeg|gif).

  • Here’s how the options look in the fancy admin panel with everything turned on screenshot-2.(png|jpg|jpeg|gif).


  1. Unzip to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Read the documentation that appears in the new tab in your admin panel. This has detailed instructions.


Whats coming soon?

Next thing I’m gonna add is a colour picker option. Then I’m going to make the logo, favicon and Apple icon uploads work better.
