Admin Templates

Most sites these days are dynamic, and whilst some use off the shelf software, such as WordPress, MovableType or Drupal, there are many custom developed sites.

Most of these custom developed websites have a admin section that very few people see, which plays a vital role in the website operation, but because few people see the admin section, sometimes little attention is paid to it.

Below you’ll find some HTML/CSS templates specifically built for admin sections of custom sites which can help make sure the admin section as beautiful and usable as the public face of the website.

Web Resources Depot Free Admin Template For Web Applications


I have created this admin template for a project of mine and pleased to share with WebResourcesDepot readers.

It is a 3 column design with a tabbed menu. The idea is having the standard categories in the tab menu for an easy reach and have all the detailed ones in the left menu. And there is an info box at the right to inform users what’s going on at that page.

You can see index demo and users demo. This template is free for personal use /non commercial. I would’t mind if you keep the link in the footer. All icons are form

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. There are very few places I’ve found to help you figure out how to design an admin console. So far, I’ve been making it up as I go along. These are way more sophisticated then what I’ve come up with.
