If a client has asked you to program a site that he can completely manage from the frontend, or if you yourself want to save the money and time that hiring a programmer could require and create the site yourself, this tutorial is for you.

We’ll show you how to display any wp-admin page or plugin on the frontend. And we want to use an excellent example that can be very useful.

If you are thinking of hiring someone to sort, classify, add alternative text, to your WordPress media library, you can easily display it on the frontend so that the person doesn’t take control of any other part of your site.

For this, you can use the WP Frontend Admin plugin. It helps you display any of your wp-admin plugins or pages. You can quickly create web apps and frontend pages with this plugin.

Now you just need to configure the page, which is really simple. The plugin will display a quick settings panel on the left side of the screen where you can select the page’s title, URL slug, template, and menu.

Also, you can hide any unnecessary elements by clicking on Hide element and then click on the element you want to hide. In this case, you can hide the Screen Options and the Help tabs.
