CMS-Like Admin Menu

Want to run a simple website using WordPress as a CMS, but don’t want (or need) the Post functionality? This is the plugin for you. This plugin rewrites the Admin menu link order to put the Pages menu item at the top of the Admin menu.

You may also notice that there are now two download options. This is because version 2.0 is only for WordPress versions 2.7 and above. The menu item numbers changed in 2.7, so the new version of the plugin won’t work correctly on WordPress 2.6 or earlier. If you’re still running version 1.0 of the plugin on an older version of WordPress, there’s no need to update, as you already have the newest version that will work for you (though, I highly recommend you upgrade WordPress as soon as possible to take advantage of the new features and security enhancements).

WordPress 2.7+: CMS-LIke Admin Menu ver 2.1
WordPress 2.6 or older: CMS-LIke Admin Menu ver. 1.0

ver. 1.0 – Initial Release, January 29, 2008
Initial release of plugin.
ver. 2.0 – February 10, 2009
Update to comply with new menu styles in WordPress 2.7.

Upload cms-menu.php to your wp-content/plugins directory.

Disable plugin in Admin panel. Upload new cms-menu.php, overwriting the original. Enable plugin in Admin menu.

There is no usage per se, since all the plugin does is changes link orders on the Admin menu.
