This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

The Mojo Admin Toolbox


The Mojo Admin Toolbox is a collection of little functions I found myself using a lot to customise the admin dashboard of WordPress, specifically when I was hiding stuff from a client or customising it for them! The latest version (1.3+) REQUIRES WordPress 3.5+.


  • Remove/Hide the WordPress Comments system, never confuse your client again!
  • Easily customise the Login Page Logo.
  • Set a New custom default avatar for your site.
  • Remove dashboard widgets for ALL users.
  • Hide the theme editor page and stop clients messing up the theme!
  • Easily change the Dashboard footer text for your own.
  • Change the Descriptions and link destination for your custom login logo.
  • Hide the WordPress meta generator tag, make it a little more difficult for those script kiddies!

New Features

  • Modify From name and email address for all emails sent by your WordPress site!
  • Image uploader now in use on the options page (Now using the WordPress 3.5 Media Manager)!
  • Added option to override theme, useful if your theme is trying to do the same thing as this plugin is!

Future Development Plan

  • Option to set ‘superadmin’ who can see everything
  • Option to hide other WordPress features (Links, Tools, Plugins etc)
  • Option to hide Update notices from non-superadmins
