Easy Admin Pages. Magnify Options

The Admin Builder is the main features embedded in Sukellos Framework. It allows to easily build powerful and beautiful custom admin pages in WordPress Dashboard.

The Admin Builder can be included very simply in your own plugin to create an administration page in a few lines of code. This takes the hassle out of your hands, making high-level designs possible with very little development skill. No need to worry about implementing the form, handling writing fields, just focus on your configuration logic.

Admin Builder is a powerful way to create configuration pages to manage WordPress options.


// Admin page.
 $admin_page = Admin_Builder::instance()->create_admin_page(
         'name' => 'My admin page',
         'id' => 'my_admin_page',
         'desc' => __( 'My admin page description', 'text_domain' ),

 // Create a text option field
         'type' => Item_type::TEXT,
         'id' => 'text_option',
         'name' => __( 'Text', 'text_domain' ),
         'desc' => 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.',

A lot of standard fields are available:

  • Checkbox
  • Multiple choices (checkbox and select) on custom data
  • Content
  • Header
  • Radio
  • Text
  • Textarea
  • Upload

Admin Builder is designed to be used by developers. Many hooks are available to allow full style and behavior customization.

Enrich Post Types And User Profiles

Take control of custom fields in any type of posts. The creation of Metabox becomes very simple. All the standard fields can also be used, but this time by associating them with any post type, stored as post_meta. Admin Builder allows disabling classical custom fields display. Users can be enriched by adding fields that are directly visible and modifiable in their own profiles. The management of this user_meta is also possible directly in administration pages.

In the same way as for the options, the management of the post_meta and the user_meta is simplified as much as possible. Just a few lines of code are enough.

Automatic CSS Generation. SCSS Support.

In the administration pages, the options can be taken automatically into account in CSS. Each field value can be dynamically associated with a CSS. More complex styles can also be generated from an administration page thanks to the magic method create_css, in a very simple way. Admin Builder allows the use of a code-like configuration field, thanks to the inclusion of the Ace project. This control offers an input area that supports the CSS / SCSS format. This field can be automatically generated and included in the WordPress front end.
