Here’s quite a cool plugin for WordPress: WP Tiger Administration.
For those who don’t know, in WordPress — which is the blogging tool/content management system that runs this blog (and thousands of others) — plugins are files that you add extra functionality to the WordPress application. It’s a plugin that allows me to list my last-played tracks from Last.fm/Audioscrobbler, for example.
Well, WP Tiger Administration is another plugin, but this one works entirely behind the scenes, altering the look and feel of the Admin panel. And because it’s a plugin it doesn’t affect any of the core code for WordPress and therefore acts simply like a theme for the WordPress admin. As the name might suggest (to some) it gives it a very attractive and usable Mac OS Tiger feel, presenting the main menu items down the left-hand side, with submenu items along the top of the screen.
There are versions for both WordPress 1.5.x and 2.0.x.
(Incidentally, Sri Lankan for “Easy Tiger” is “Ho Kotiya” (pronounced “HAW KAW-tee-ya“) — just thought you’d like to know. I learned that on my ministry selection conference in 1996.)
