I was so excited about Gmail new look before. But when I tried it, I wasn’t that satisfied. The colors and design aren’t easy for the eye, in my opinion. Gmail’s look is really similar to WordPress. They have nearly the same design. In fact, all Google new looks are similar to WordPress. I don’t know the reason behind that, but I do know one thing. WordPress and Gmail’s new look hurt my eyes. I don’t like to look at white, shiny objects. For me, it is like staring at a light bulb.
But there are always solutions. For Gmail, you can switch back to the old themes. For WordPress, you can install plugins that change the colors of your dashboards. There are many of them. But there is one I really like. It is Fluency Admin. This one gives a real professional look to your dashboard. It allows you to change the colors to suit your needs. If the new WordPress look hurt your eye, this plugin will be very helpful. And if you create WordPress tutorials or how to videos, this plugin will set you unique from the rest. This is not the purpose of the plugin. I am mainly writing about it for those who hate WordPress new look.
To install the plugins, you need to follow these steps:
- Click on Plugins and then Add New
- Write the name of the plugin “Fluency Admin”
- Click Search
- Click Install and then Activate the plugin
As soon as you activate the plugin, your dashboard will look like this:
To access the plugin setting page, hover your mouse over Settings and choose Fluency Admin.
Here you can change the color of the dashboard:
Visit this website http://html-color-codes.info/ and choose the HTML color code you want, copy it and paste in the above field. After that, click Save Changes and the color will change immediately. These are some examples:
If WordPress new look hurt your eyes, try this plugin and change its color to something easier for your eyes. If you’re happy with the new look, then you don’t have to install the plugin. If you want to use it for the WordPress tutorials, then that’s fine as long as you tell your readers or viewers that the look will be different on their own blogs.
That’s all for today guys. I really hope you like this one. I love to share cool and useful plugins. I promised my friend Adrienne to look for a better alternative to TinyMCE Advanced. I am still looking for a good one, Adrienne.
I’d love to hear your feedback about this one. If you know any other plugin, you can tell us about it.
If you like this post, please consider sharing it with your friends!
Thanks a lot in a advance!
