Set up the Pages, Theme Settings, and Menus on the Frontend Dashboard

TEXT GUIDE

It’s time to learn how to set up the pages, theme settings, and menu pages. We’ll do it quickly with WP Frontend Admin.

1- Open the dashboard site’s wp-admin panel

All the pages for the front-end dashboard will be created on this site, so you need to go to Network Admin > Sites and open the wp-admin panel of the dashboard site.

2- Set up the Pages section on the frontend

Create a new page and enter the title and this shortcode: [vg_display_admin_page page_url=”wp-admin URL”].

Instead of wp-admin URL, enter the pages section URL and click Preview.

Now you can configure the pages list using the Quick Settings panel:

  1. Select the page title, slug, template, and menu (main menu).
  2. Hide any unnecessary elements.
  3. Hide notices created by other plugins.
  4. Edit the texts to simplify them.
  5. Select if users will see their pages only or all pages.
  6. Hit Save to apply the changes and publish the page.

You can also edit the Add New form by hiding any unnecessary elements and editing the texts of the form.

Finally, click Save to apply the changes.

3- Set up the themes page on the frontend

Users will need to change their site’s appearance, so you need to set up the themes page on the frontend.

First, create a new page and enter the page title and content.

In the content,  enter this shortcode: [vg_display_admin_page page_url=”wp-admin URL”]. Just replace the wp-admin URL part with the URL of the themes page and click Preview.

Second, configure the page title, slug, template, and menu (main menu) and publish the page by hitting Save.

4- Set up the customize page on the frontend

Since users will need to customize their sites from the front-end dashboard, follow these steps to set up the customize page on the frontend:

First, create a new page and enter the title and content.

As the content of the page, you need to enter this shortcode: [vg_display_admin_page page_url=”wp-admin URL”]. Just replace the wp-admin URL part with the URL of the Customize page and click Preview.

Second, select the page title, slug, template, and menu (main menu).

Finally, click Save to apply the changes and publish the page.

5- Set up the nav menus on the frontend

This is how you can set up the nav menus on the frontend.

First, create a new page and enter the page title and content.

In the content,  enter this shortcode: [vg_display_admin_page page_url=”wp-admin URL”] and replace the wp-admin URL part with the URL of the nav menus page and click Preview.

Second, configure the page title, slug, template, and menu (main menu), hide unnecessary elements, and edit the texts.

Finally, publish the page by hitting Save.

Once you publish these four pages and integrate them into the dashboard, this is how they will look:
