    Free & Pro Dependency Simplified

    We’ve separated the Free and Pro versions of WP Adminify to optimize performance and streamline your experience. The free version no longer contains any Pro version code, ensuring it remains light and fast.

    Benefit to Users: This separation makes both free & pro version incredibly fast and lightweight, providing you with a smoother and more efficient WordPress experience. You can now enjoy the essential features without any unnecessary overhead, ensuring your site performs at its best. If you decide to upgrade to the Pro version, you can easily unlock advanced features without affecting the streamlined performance of the free version.

    Query Monitor Enhancements

    Significant improvements in script loading and overall performance have been made. Check out the details:

    • Page Generation Time: Reduced from 0.67s to 0.35s
    • Memory Usage: Decreased from 9.2MB to 6.2MB
    • Database Queries: Dropped from 99 to 46 in the Dashboard
    • Script Loading: Minimized from 10 to just 4 scripts
    • Style Loading: Cut down from 13 stylesheets to only 5

    NOTE: This is a continuous process. We are constantly working and tweaking things to get better numbers across all the performance metrics, every single day. So, these stats can potentially improve much more by the time the full release rolls around.

    Benefit to Users: Faster page loads, reduced memory usage, and fewer database queries mean a more responsive and efficient WordPress dashboard, helping you work more efficiently.

    Smart Dark Mode

    First off, we’ve removed CSS code dependencies for over 80 plugins, making our plugin lighter and faster. Now, no more manual CSS coding is required for dark mode. However, what’s more substantial about this change is that now no matter what plugins you use our smart dark mode can automatically detect it’s theme and adjust the icon styles, button styles accordingly. This makes sure that when you chose to toggle the dark mode you can truly experience an optimized dark mode that looks better

    Benefit to Users: Enjoy a seamless dark mode experience across all plugins, making your dashboard easier on the eyes and more visually appealing.

    Default UI and Adminify UI Improvements

    Resolved issues where Adminify styles and scripts were forcefully added to the default WordPress UI. Now, if the Adminify UI is disabled, no residual styles or scripts remain, ensuring compatibility with plugins like ACF, WooCommerce, Yoast SEO, Elementor, WordFence, Rankmath, and much more. Plus, we’ve introduced custom minimal icons for all default WordPress admin menu items.

    Benefit to Users: Improved plugin compatibility and a cleaner, more cohesive user interface enhance your overall WordPress experience.

    Enhanced Options Panel

    We’ve completely redesigned the options panel to be more user-friendly, easy to use, and far more intuitive than before. The new layout offers a streamlined experience, making it easier for you to find and adjust settings.

    New Option Panel Includes:

    • Customize: Tailor your WordPress admin experience to match your style and preferences.

    Benefit to Users: The enhanced options panel simplifies navigation and makes it easier for you to find and adjust settings. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced user, the intuitive design ensures that you can quickly and efficiently customize your WordPress admin experience to suit your needs.

    Streamlined Plugin UI

    We’ve simplified our UI with a focus on minimalism and intuitive navigation. Modules have been converted into standalone plugins for better organization. Some have new names while others retain their old module names. Here’s a list:

    • Login Customizer ===> Loginfy
    • Activity Logs
    • Google Pagespeed insights ===> Google Pagespeed

    • Header & Footer scripts

    Old Pro users will receive unique coupon codes to add new addons for free within two months of the update release. This resolves the issue of repurchasing features previously included in the full plugin.

    Benefit to Users: Enjoy new features at no additional cost, rewarding your loyalty and enhancing your plugin’s capabilities.
