Now Available as a Plugin!
I’m happy to announce tonite that the afd wordpress 2 admin theme is now available as a plugin. First off special thanks to Ping for volunteering to make the plugin. You’ll also notice an option in there to change the colors of the navigation, which is something he needed specifically so that he could tell the difference in the admins between a few of his wordpress installs.
It took alot of css work to get the plugin to override the default admin css. The only area that I couldn’t seem to override was the upload.css. I have provided that file again in this download as an option if you want to replace it with the default one. For me, its absolutely necessary as in order to maintain the aesthetics of my theme. Also I’ve included the fat.js file from the previous theme versions in case you want the colors I’ve used in that, this is also optional if you like the default fat.js colors then no need to replace.
Thanks also to Mike in finding a widget bug, which has been fixed in this update.
I’ve done the updating on my mac tonite and if any of you windows users see anything wonky please let me know.
I’ll also keep the the previous version available for download if you want to use that instead of the plugin. I’ve updated that download with the widget fix.
*10-21-7* updated. I added a rule to set the “view” link on the edit post/page to the left of the edit window instead of absolutely right as the default was.
