APAD: Clutter Free


Plugin Page:

Clutter Free is a plugin that lets you hide portions of the WordPress posting interface that you rarely (or never) use.

– Hides various portions from view to save space on the screen
– Can completely remove the Image Uploader and Preview windows saving bandwidth

Honestly, there isn’t much I can write about Clutter Free other than it works and works well.

The installation is quick and easy. You can then visit your profile page and deselect which elements you want to hide.

I have the inline image uploader and the Preview window hidden on my blogs because I don’t use either of them. You have no clue how much bandwidth I save while I am blogging!

One good feature about Clutter Free is the ability for individual users to select what they want to see seperately. This ensures that on multi-admin blogs, the admin doesn’t enforce his settings on the other writers.

However, what I would like to see is the ability for the admin to have some control over these elements. e.g. I would prefer all my writers to use the same method of inserting images as I do and would like to disable the inline image uploader from all of them.

Are you using Clutter Free? Has it helped saved your bandwidth?

    Whoa! I had no idea how much junk was there. I’m down to six items on my write page. “Zippy” certainly describes it! I wish I tried it earlier; there’s no telling how much money I’ve wasted opening stuff I never use.

    I am running the latest wordpress release on Dreamhost with php5 and mysql 4 something I believe, and when having activated this plugin, I only receive blank edit pages. So basically it shows nothing at all.

    This is probably not the feature I was looking for, so might this be a bug? I am not really into this, so if you got a solution to this I’d appreciate it!

    I’ve been using this plugin for months, and I am lovin’ it since the first second :)

    Well, this seems mighty handy! I’ve never been too concerned with bandwidth issues, but I’d love to turn off certain features, just to clear up my interface… I’m on Dreamhost too though, so I’ll have to see about the problem Jez mentioned.

    Nice! Works for me. This is one of those things you didn’t realize you needed but once you get it you won’t want to live without it.
