Working with clients who are perhaps less WordPress savvy than you’d like them to be can be frustrating at times. They have a habit of fiddling where they should not fiddle. Under many circumstances, granting them limited access is the right thing to do.
But there will always be a chance of them screwing something up, and that is where Easy Admin Notification may be able to help. As you might expect, this plugin allows you to easily place a customized message within the WordPress backend.
The settings give you some control over the message, namely:
- Whether it is displayed as an error or notification
- Whether the end user has an option to hide the message
- Where the message is displayed (either all pages, or dashboard only)
There are numerous potential application for this plugin – keeping rogue clients in check is just one of them. What would be nice to see from this plugin is the ability to include messages on particular pages only – for instance, you could include a pre-publishing checklist on the post screen.
As it is, the plugin offers up functionality that is relatively easy to put in place manually, but it has the potential to offer a lot more. For that reason, I gave it a three star rating in the plugins repository. It is a brand new release, so here’s hoping that future updates will extend its functionality.
