Currently the admin-UI is a no-go for mobile browsers. Therefore I'm searching for a plugin that makes the back-end/admin-UI accessible and a little more friendly for mobile devices.

Features, the plugin should have:

  • Not outdated
  • Not reliant on some 3rd party service

Important It's not (!) about a front-end Theme.

Short list of plugins that are outdate (will edit later)


  • What specifically are you looking to see more functional? What model phone(s) are you using? – The Z Man Mar 7 '12 at 15:05

    @TheZMan An accessible interface. One that floats the contents. Currently the admin bar won't zoom if you zoom, successfully preventing any click on a mobile display. The same goes for nearly any UI element as they're too small and zooming is an epic horror story. – kaiser Mar 7 '12 at 15:08

    What model phone are you using? Reason why I'm asking is there is work going on right now with a responsive admin for tablets and someone (cough cough) may be able to get some work in for mobile phones as well. wpdevel.wordpress.com/2012/02/09/team-update-tableteers – The Z Man Mar 7 '12 at 15:13

    @TheZMan Thanks. I already recognized your avatar at trac :) I'm using an iPhone4G (no "s"). Point is that I hoped there's something out there for "all" devices, not only for the fruit sorts of smart phones. Btw: Links don't exceed comment lenght if put into rect. & round brackets - [text](link). – kaiser Mar 7 '12 at 19:22

    I 110% agree .. no "fruity" limitations :) as for the link deal, duly noted thanks! – The Z Man Mar 7 '12 at 19:28

I haven't tried this, but it may be the ticket.

This one has been updated a little more recently JUIZ smart mobile admin

  • Aside from some minor drawbacks (menu not really working, jquery ui problems), this works not that bad +1. Thanks. – kaiser Apr 1 '12 at 14:04
