Part 3: A more friendly, faster and useful ExpressionEngine control panel?

Please also see Part 1: Control panel and Part 2 : Control panel


Gives your clients a pop up option on the hints in the form of an iFrame. Useful for referencing specific content

NSM Publish hints

Adds in a lot more detail for fieldtypes

CP Analytics

Google Analytics data right in your ExpressionEngine Control Panel. Very well designed and fits in nicely. At $9 a steal if the client is looking for web stats.


Allows for drag and drop functionality to reorder entries on the edit screen. A real gem in the right situation.

Rename Publish Tabs

Does what it says on the tin.

Suggest Field

It’s an autocomplete field and gathers from previously entered information. In the right scenario this could save clients a lot of time.

Nice job putting together that video… I came across it from the EE-HUB email newsletter.For Disposition, devs should know that it is listed as a proof of concept add-on only and Brian is not actively supporting it. But I still find it incredibly helpful to use on projects.Also… for me, two critical add-ons to make the EE CP more client friendly are Dash-ee and Zoo Flexible Admin. I have used them to create dashboards for clients and they really appreciate the improvement over the default EE CP home page.As an example, here’s a screen shot of an EE CP dashboard for a recently completed project:
