I was impressed with the makeover that WordPress 2.5 included for the admin dashboard. As I was pinging Ozh for his great work on his admin drop down plugin, he noted Dean Robinson’s re-skinning of the admin dashboard. It’s worth a hop over to Dean’s site just to look at the screenshots of his Fluency ‘theme’ for the admin dashboard. Clean, modern and combined with Ozh’s plugin, a very nice UI.
I did have to do a little troubleshooting because the widgets page was frozen. Turns out another plugin, KB Advanced RSS was causing some hate on that page. Should also note that right now Fluency only works on CSS2 compliant browsers which means Safari, Firefox and others who care about implementing such standards.
