1. Nice!! Now we can create our custom color schemes! :D

  2. Hi Sarah
    Love your purple interface… shall we call it “purple haze”

    Sounds like a useful plugin for those who like to personalise the backend.

    I rather liked your suggestion “The most important one is the non-native placement of its settings panel.”

    I’ve noticed that with a few plugins. You have to hunt around to find the settings.

    “It would also be really cool if each color selection updated live while editing.”
    Agreed – that would be cool.

  3. Unfortunately I had to delete the HS Custom Admin theme plugin as soon as I installed it – load on my server increased about 6x due to the calls to admin-ajax.php. It’s a good idea but doesn’t seem ready for prime time just yet.

        Works great, thanks for sharing!

    1. The plugin doesn’t seem to be in the repository at all ATM… perhaps because of the issue Andrea reported?

      It is funny to be thinking about the part of your site that no one sees! But if YOU spend more time on the backend than the frontend, then these “MP6” improvements are refreshing.

  4. I just put Brad’s generator to the test and it worked perfectly:)

    Create the .zip, upload and activate as plugin, visit your profile and your new color scheme is listed.


    1. It worked for you Adam? When I try to activate it I keep getting “can’t activate, parse error on line 13”

      And meanwhile, I can’t even find HS Custom Admin Theme in the plugin repository, perhaps because of the issue Andrea reported?

        I received an error as well when I had a period or a space in the name but after removing the period or space and trying again with no spaces the plugin works great just as Adam advised.

    Thanks a lot for writing review of our plugin. Unfortunately It is temporary pulled by wordpress, I already updated fix there but it seems delay due to holidays for new review.
