I love the new design and UI direction you've taken over the past year. It lends very well to beginners & intermediates to use your plugins with ease. However one thing I do miss is having a less cluttered admin.
For example I loved how Smush Pro used to tuck in under Media. As it's not a primary component of WordPress that requires constant attention, it's a set-and-forget scenario.
Currently our must-install WPMU plugin stack looks like this:
- WPMU Dev Dash
- Smush Pro
- Defender Pro
- Hummingbird Pro
So already that's 6 additional items on the main nav.
This brings me to my idea of an Advanced WPMU Dash. It'd be fantastic if members could install an Advanced version (or access a setting in the current WPMU Dev Dash plugin) that brings all the plugins in under the one Navigation branch. Or unified Dash.
Stylistically this mode wouldn't need illustrations or fancy animations like the usual plugins. This mode is built for speed (for someone who has installed & configured these plugins hundreds of times and just wants a quick, easy interface to get the job done).
Currently we use functions to hide all these from the navigation once configured, but it'd be great to see something official if you guys are interested.
