I am happy to see that others are jumping on WordPress’ admin as it is not the most beautiful thing in the world. In my opinion no one is going to beat Tiger any time soon from Steve Smith, but SpotMilk is a very nice admin theme if you are already moved over to WordPress 2.0 and Tiger won’t work for you.
I’ve been using WordPress for three months now, but I never considered of modifying design of the default administration panel in WP probably because I believed in the Shuttle project aimed for a beautification of the WordPress administration panel. However, with the delay of the Shuttle completion (originally due in May, but now extended to sometime in summer), I felt the need of creating a theme for the WP admin panel. Basically, this theme was motivated by the theme from Not That Ugly Designs, which lacks readability and user friendly interface. Also, I’d like to thank Camino for his post pointing out the interface problems in the WP admin panel.
The SpotMilk theme is inspired by Spotlight on Mac OS X Tiger and the Milk theme by Max Rudberg, and the main layout is based on the default admin theme in WP 1.5 & 2.0.
