White Label CMS


The White Label CMS plugin is for developers who want to give their clients a more personalised and less confusing content management system.

For a overview of the changes in 2.0 version of the plugin please visit the Video User Manuals website.


  • Customize the login page
  • Add your branding to the header and footer
  • Customize the dashboard
  • Control which menus appear for your client
  • Setting up a customized dashboard can be done in seconds using the White Label CMS Wizard

Customize The Login Page

Impress your clients with a branded login page. Add yours or your client’s logo, add a background image and even control the CSS if you wish. Personalising the back end of WordPress will give your client the feeling that this is their website, not a generic website.

Add Your Branding to the Header and Footer

Stay top of mind with your client by adding your branding to the admin bar, menu or footer.

Customize the Dashboard

Are you tired of telling your clients to ignore everything on the Dashboard, but then still receive questions because they’re confused or have broken something?

With White Label CMS you can clear everything from the dashboard and add in your own dashboard panel. You can even add your own RSS feed so your clients can be kept up to date with what you are doing in your business. Which is much more relevant to your client than where and when the next WordPress Meetup is.

Add your own welcome dashboard, and now you can use an Elementor or Beaver Builder template to make it look beautiful.

Control with Menus Appear for Your Client

We have created a new feature called the White Label CMS admin which allows you to hide menus for other users. Setup is simple and gives clients admin access with some restrictions making it harder for them to stumble across settings and mess up the site.

Setup a Site in Seconds Using the Wizard

Setting up a customized dashboard is easy and quick using the White Label CMS Wizard. With just a few clicks, you can add your branding and your client’s details and be up and running in seconds.

There is so much that you can do with White Label CMS, but we want the experience to be simple. The Wizard allows you to set up a clutter-free, customized dashboard without having to scroll through all of the options that are available to you.

Who is this plugin for?

For developers who handover websites to their clients and use WordPress as a CMS.

How do I add links to my own panel?

Your custom panel accepts html, so just write the markup as you normally would in html.

How do you recommend using this plugin?

We have been using this for a number of months now, and we have found clients respond best when it is set up in the following fashion:

  • Use the clients logo for the login (it gives the CMS a bit of a wow factor!)
  • Use the clients logo in the header
  • Use your own logo in the footer, and place a link back to your website
  • Remove all panels from the dashboard (they have a lot of information that just confuses the client)
  • Add your own panel. Personalise the experience for your client by welcoming them to their website. Provide links to the most relevant elements in the CMS. Provide a link back to your support system if you have one.

Great plugin with helpful features

White Label CMS lets you change the appearance of the login screen and add a custom Dashboard so it’s easier for your clients to learn how to use the WordPress backend. You can change the colors of the backend by adding some CSS too. Overall, it’s a wonderful plugin that lets you place your (or your clients) branding in the backend for a more pleasant experience.

Nice Work

The Plugin is very straight forward and helped me in branding my clients websites.

Really great!!

The new (official) version 2.0 is really great! I am so glad that you incorporated the “hide menus for your client” settings! If I could I would give you 100 stars (in stead of only 5).

Ótimo Plugin

Plugin ótimo mesmo, porém sua ultima atualização a 2.0.1 deu erro many redirects em meu site, mas nunca tive nenhum outro tipo de problema com esse plugin. Primeira vez.

Essential plugin

I build websites for clients and use this plugin on all of my sites and love it. I did have a problem with the last update (the first issue I’ve had since I started using it) and the developer immediately worked on a fix that corrected it perfectly. Very impressed with the plugin and support.

Works Perfectly

Works really well and has plenty of customization. Although when they gave it a much needed overhaul a while ago, my websites broke, but they were on top of things and patched it.
