In the last years, using WordPress as a CMS has grown in popularity. But still, there’re some steps that need to be done, before you can use it as such and don’t get bothered by the “blogish” approach it still has in lots of places. As a CMS it doesn’t need a lot of things. It only needs less things before you can start dropping plugins into your installation. Then you can start adding those plugins that add the functionality that your system really needs.
The problem only is, that WP doesn’t has an option, switch or whatever to clean this up for you.
Enter WP Strip Naked, a plugin that does this for you.
Here’s the full list of what the plugin – so far – removes.
- All Dashboard Widgets except for “Incoming Links”
- All built in taxonomies and leaves only the nav-menu taxonomy
- The built in post type “Post”
- Changes the option show-on-front to “pages”
- Changes the initial posts query to search for the page with the lowest ID
- All admin bar items and leaves only the site name that can be used to access the public view
- Admin Menu items and submenu items: Posts, Links, Comments
- The admin menu items for Plugin & Theme Editor
- All Settings admin menu items and replaces them with the “All Settings” Page and makes it only accessible for 'manage_options' capability
- The capitalPdangit filter
