Lean, Mean, and Clean WordPress Write Post Panel

Tired of a cluttered Write Post panel in your WordPress Administration Panels? Mark Jaquith has created the Clutter Free WordPress Plugin just for you.

It’s pretty simple. You get to choose which elements of the Write Post panel you want to see or not see. Don’t want to see the Post Slug. It’s gone. Don’t want to scroll past the Image Upload or Optional Excerpt on your way to the Post Preview – make it go away. It’s simple and easy to use, streamlining the look of your Write Post Panel.

For those who want to go back to an even older version style of WordPress and get rid of the new Post Preview, you can turn it off from within the core programming with instructions from 24 Fighting Chickens or Kafkaesqui’s Hide Post Preview WordPress Plugin (downloadable file) does it for you with no stress.

    looks interesting, and welcome, but worth noting it cant be “fully” utilized with current released wordpress versions – only 2.0.5 or 2.1

    I’m looking for plug-in, hack or whatever to make url become clickable. I hate using link button.

    By using the link button, or handwriting the entire code, you are creating an accessible link, therefore an accessible web page, which is in compliance with international accessibility laws. Shortcuts often break accessibility standards. If you don’t care about SEO or over one quarter of your potential audience, do whatever you want.

    Saying that, there are a variety of WordPress Plugins for editing posts and creating links with other methods such as putting the link and text inside of [brackets] or {braces}, which seems to be more comprehensible to others. Others still think hitting the link button is easier. One click, copy and paste, and type in the text and it’s done. It’s up to you, so check out your various choices.

    These WordPress Plugins, however, only work with full version WordPress, not blogs.

    I have evolved Marks plugin (with credit of-course) into the Post Control WordPress Plugin.

    It now covers all aspects of WordPress 2.6.1 – and even allows you to control post revisions and autosave, along with a control to chage the default uploader to the old HTML one if your server has trouble with the Flash uploader.
