Admin and Site Enhancements

Deskripzioa

Admin and Site Enhancements helps you to easily enhance various admin workflows and site aspects while replacing multiple plugins doing it.

“Amazing how many separate plugins this replaces!” ~@yudayuda

“I really love how this plugin incorporates so many small fixes or tweaks that are needed with WordPress – I can now get rid of many other plugins.” ~@Dale Reardon

“This plugin allows you to install and maintain one plugin instead of a host of smaller ones. My tests were all successful and I was happy to simplify my maintenance with fewer plugins.” ~Vic Drover

“[This] is a Swiss Army Knife in terms of features that will keep your WordPress clean and optimal.” ~@samirhp
