Expanded Admin Menus

WordPress 3.3 introduced new flyout admin menus. If you prefer to have all your admin menus open all then time, then this plugin will do just that. The only caveat is that your browser must support JavaScript.

  1. Upload the whole directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Where are the settings?

There aren’t any! Just install and activate the plugin and enjoy always-expanded
admin menus. You can’t get much simpler than that!


  • Fix error beta-testers were getting if their setting wasn’t valid JSON


  • Add expand/contract arrows
  • Store open/closed items in a cookie for persistance


  • Original Version – uses jQuery and CSS to keep admin menus expanded.
