Admin Notes WP

by Web Rockstar


Admin Notes WP allows you to embed instructional ‘how to’ videos and other embeddable media from major platforms directly in the WordPress admin help tabs. Useful, instructional videos can be included on the relevant admin pages to help website admin users learn how your plugins and theme work.

Other features include:

  • Along with embedded media, rich text can also be included in help tab content to explain how features work
  • Custom notices can be placed on any admin screen, communicating important information about the page and how it works
  • The custom admin footer text provide a subtle and unobtrusive information about about the company or person who setup/created the site
  • Some users are not aware of the WordPress help tab. A bounce animation (similar to MacOS icon bounce) displays once per user until clicked to help them discover it for the first time
  • Determining what ‘screen id’ a help tab should display on can be tricky. The Admin Screen ID Identifier Tool allows you to copy the screen id with the click of a button
  • A default WordPress install comes with many built in help tabs that may not be relevant for your website and cause confusion. These default help tabs can be hidden if desired.

Components that are not relevant for your unique needs can be easily deactivated, removing them from the admin menus.
