The dasboard menu can get very cluttered if you have lots of plugins installed on your WordPress blog. Many plugins add their own pages to the menu system and eventually it may turn out that some submenus are so long they barely fit on your screen anymore. What’s worse, the menu items are arranged “in no particular order”, which makes finding the necessary option tedious.
That’s why I wrote a small plugin that can sort the admin menus alphabetically. In the default configuration it will sort the menus that tend to be the most bloated – Manage, Settings and Plugins. You can change which menus are sorted by editing the plugin’s source code – it’s very simple and short.

Requires : WordPress 2.5
Tested up to : WordPress 2.5.1
This plugin should be compatible with any “dropdown menu” and “CSS menu” plugins. I’ve successfuly tested it with Admin Drop Fown Menu by Ozh and I’m fairly sure it will work with other similar plugins.
It’s largely a proof-of-concept thing. I could go all-out and make a full-fledged menu editor with drag & drop and whatnot, but I suspect nobody would care. So I wrote this simple plugin instead 😛Related posts :
