In addition to numerous speed enhancements to the front end, the back-end admin interface has been completely revamped for speed and ease of use.
For example, I’ve replaced the accordion tabs architecture with convenient menus right in the WordPress sidebar menu. Each theme option is labeled with an icon for quick access. More importantly, when you save the settings in a specific section, you remain on that section (previously you were always redirected to the home admin screen).
There are tons of enhancements with this release, ClickBump owners can see the full release notes here :
- Revamped theme options panel with easy to access menu links added to the WordPress sidebar menu.
