If you liked the WP Tiger Administration admin theme that I featured in Pimp My WP Dashboard Part I, I’m sure you’re gonna love this one!

Sunghwa Park or known on the web as Ceprix, felt the need to create a WordPress admin panel theme. So he drew inspiration from Mac OS X Tiger’s desktop search tool Spotlight and the Milk theme by Max Rudberg and created SpotMilk.

Since it’s first release, SpotMilk has been downloaded more than 6,500 times. Which could only mean one thing, it’s good.

My Take:

I downloaded, installed and tried SpotMilk. What can I say? I LOVE IT! I love it so much, it made me switch from my previous admin theme. It only changes the design and colors but doesn’t mess up the original WordPress admin panel layout.

Btw, I’m using the BlackMilk edition of SpotMilk. If you want to activate BlackMilk, just open the spotmilk.php file and uncomment line 16, save it and upload.

What are you waiting for? Download SpotMilk Admin Theme for WordPress now!

There are two versions of SpotMilk so make sure that you download the right version. The latest version 2.0.3 is compatible with WP 2.1.x only! If you’re still using WP 2.0.x, you should download v1.7.5.

    @Tim – I didn’t know that Ceprix.net is no longer online. If you still need the SpotMilk admin theme, let me know and I’ll send it to your email address. Btw, what version of WordPress are you currently using? I was thinking that maybe SpotMilk won’t work well with newer version of WordPress because it was created for WordPress 2.1+.

    Cleverly http://www.ceprix.net has blocked my IP, which happens to belong to a rather large private network. Can I help working for the UK’s largest employer (1.3 million workers at last count)?

    Any other way to obtain the plugin?
