MBS Review: The #1 WordPress plugin for customizing the back-end admin and dashboard area of your WordPress website.


We’ve tested several plugins for WordPress admin and dashboard customization, and though all of them had their Pros and Cons, we found Cusmin to stand head and shoulders above the rest. There is a huge (HUGE!) amount of functionality packed into this plugin, which is also lightweight. With Cusmin, we can handover a completely branded administrator dashboard experience to each client and user who uses one of our websites. From tailoring the colors of WordPress, to hiding certain plugins and areas you don’t want all users to access, the plugin proved worth the money for the PRO version. Highly recommended for web developers and designers who want to provide their clients with a beautiful, custom and branded back-end WordPress dashboard experience.
