Recently I was tasked with creating a fairly straight forward 1 page website in WordPress. It was one of those sites with the different sections and the main navigation scrolls you down to the correct section. The trouble was that for such as a simple website the admin experience was very complicated. Therefore I set about trying to make the admin more like the front end – more simple. Here is how I got on. I have blogged and spoken about admin customisations before and those people that know and have worked with me know that it is something I both enjoy working with and something I feel is a little underdone at times with many WordPress websites. We spend all our time focussing on the front-end (which is not a bad thing in itself) but little time thinking about the experience for the person or people that have to manage the website. The site that was in question is shown below and was designed by the team at Pixel Junction. First a little bit about the setup I used with the website. As everything was on 1-page it kind of makes sense to me to make everything editable from within a page in WordPress. Therefore I created a page titled home and then set this as the front page under Settings
