How to Change Admin Labels in WordPress

Reading Time: 1 mins

This is a neat trick to know about. 🙂 How to change admin labels in WordPressblog.iamcreative. This can come in handy if you’re using the standards “posts” for something other than blog posts, such as Tutorials, Press, Recipes and so on. The trick will make the WordPress dashboard tailored for the site’s actual purpose without interfering too much with WordPress’ core functionality.

Also, as a tip, I discovered that I only wanted the labels to change on the dashboard and not on the front-end of the site. So I wrapped the function in a conditional is_admin(); so that the meta data on posts didn’t read something like “reciped on Tuesday, September 23rd” versus “posted on Tuesday, September 23rd”.

Enjoy!
