WordPress Dashboard Should Color Code the Sidebar Title


WordPress Control Panel Sidebar Issue

I always check my other WordPress Blogs regularly, Change themes and update plug-ins for incompatibility issues. I noticed (maybe you also noticed it) that every time I tested one of my blog, usually I edit the appearance of my theme.

The way to do that in your WordPress Control panel (WordPress 2.7 and up) Dashboard is to tick the the editor button under the appearance tab; but instead of clicking the right button, you tick the editor button under the plug-in tab. The real problem on the existing WordPress dashboard sidebar, every time you change or add any entry to your blog, you scan the left sidebar for the particular button to hit and this maybe annoying and time consuming especially when you update something regularly.

Solution to WordPress Dashboard Title Sidebar Issue

I think the solution to this simple yet eye annoying problem is to implement a color coded scheme on the dashboard sidebar title. In this way you can maneuver your eye easily to a particular tab you want to edit and to prevent you from clicking different button such as the example I have shown. The left side bar on the new WordPress dashboard is where you can locate the heat map of the WordPress control panel, it should be eye friendly and easy to navigate. I have found similar plugin that will do this trick but its better that WordPress developers should implement it on default to their next upcoming upgrades.
