First of all, I really liked the speed of the plugin. I understand that it is in active development stage and therefore some minor flaws are inevitable. In any case, this is the best thing I have seen on the Internet for more convenient use of the WordPress admin panel. Good luck to you in development and lots of creative ideas.

I recently reached out to UiPress through their support chat with a question regarding the compatibility of their plugin with multisite installations. I must say that the support experience I had was commendable. The response time from UiPress was impressive, with a notification indicating that they typically reply in under 2 hours. The conversation began with a straightforward question about the plugin’s compatibility, and the support team promptly assured me that UiPress works great with multisite installations. However, when I encountered an issue activating the free plugin, the support agent, Mark, demonstrated patience and expertise in troubleshooting. Mark asked specific and relevant questions to identify the root cause of the problem. The step-by-step guidance provided, including asking for error messages and checking for other plugins, showcased a thorough approach to problem-solving. One notable aspect of the support chat was Mark’s ability to adapt to the user’s technical proficiency. When the user mentioned having root access but no access to the PHP error log, Mark adjusted the troubleshooting process accordingly, demonstrating flexibility and understanding. The support team’s willingness to dive into technical details, such as enabling the WordPress error log and reviewing specific error messages, was impressive. This level of engagement and troubleshooting assistance is invaluable for users facing technical issues. In the end, Mark identified a specific error in the log file and proposed a solution by suggesting an update to the plugin. The support agent’s expertise and commitment to resolving the issue were evident throughout the conversation. While the issue resolution took about an hour, the support team’s dedication and guidance provided a clear path to resolving the problem. The user-friendly approach and technical expertise exhibited by UiPress support, particularly Mark, left a positive impression. In conclusion, based on this support chat experience, UiPress appears to have a knowledgeable and responsive support team that goes the extra mile to assist users with technical challenges. The interaction was professional, and the support team demonstrated a commitment to ensuring a satisfactory resolution for me.

I used this plugin because I wanted a more modern admin interface. Features are good but performance is lacking bad so I had to drop it till they realize this.

The best way to customize admin experience, nothing to say, ! Some cons : its impossible to quit the fullscreen mode, so i deleted it. It would be great if it could be patched ! Some third party plugin also keep a white background color, even in dark mode. In my opinion, the builder isn’t necessary for all users. It would be also fantastic if there is a lighter /smaller version, without the builder, just with templates, to get higher performances !
