_ WordPress Administration Design: Tiger

After working with WordPress for several months now, I felt the Administration area needed a little %u2018freshening up.%u2019 I wanted the utility to feel more like an application, and less like a traditional website. So I pulled some inspiration from my newly installed OS X Tiger, and created a mockup with Fireworks. I knew from the beginning that I didn%u2019t want to touch the XHTML of the Administration, just the CSS file, and adding a few images. Almost Zen Gardenesque. It wasn%u2019t until I started digging through the XHTML that I realized what a challenge this would be.

Awesome improvement, absolutely awesome, and this is one of the reasons why I love OSS so much – if you want to go and make a change that you think is better, the source code is there, so go and do it.

The best part about it is that I already use Firefox, so all I had to do was upload the css file and it worked as is – then I uploaded the images, and it was even better!!

Why is that people on Mac’s understand User Interface better than Windows people?
Do it, you won’t be sorry ;-)
