Admin Menu Filter


Sometimes you may have a lot of admin menu items based on your WordPress installation, with this plugin you only need to type a few letters of the item name that you look and voila! Using a custom jQuery expression that turns ‘contains’ to case insensitive, the plugin adds a class ‘filtered’ for non-match elements and performs actions based on 2 simple rules:

  1. For parent menu item matching the item keeps visible.
  2. For child menu item matching the item keeps highlighted and their parent visible, keeping the rule #1 for the rest of parent menu items.

Credit for the expression:


  • Textbox filter
  • Match primary items
  • Match child items


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/admin-menu-filter directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress


How about mobile devices?

Could be added support on future versions. Currently it’s thinking for desktop users
