Admin UI Cleaner


Admin UI Cleaner is a simple WordPress plugin that cleans up unecessary parts in WordPress, making the admin area cleaner for clients.

The plugin doesn’t require any configuration, just install and let it does the job automatically.

  • Remove the WordPress logo in the admin bar.
  • Remove all WordPress widgets in the dashboard.
  • Remove the WordPress update notice message, still keep the updates available under Dashboard > Updates.

Besides, it allows you to change the login logo:
