Manage wordpress

WordPress had TWO admin menus! Making the admin navigation better must happen.

It has come to my attention that the WordPress navigation system is broken. I believe this is due to WordPress becoming more extensible. We have more post types, plugin pages, and task for just about everything.

Can this be fixed? Can the WordPress admin become usable again? This is my question for today. Take a look at the issues.

Needless to say I'm working on a fix and wanted to share my first thought on Dribbble.

Here is my IA Draft

==WordPress==
Links to your website homepage.

==Show==
List post types: Posts, Pages, Custom Post Types

==Create==
Make content: Posts, Pages, Custom Post Types

==Manage==
Items include: Comments, Taxonomies, Widgets, Menus, Media
Admin items: Users

==Search==
Click and bar becomes search box

==Shortcuts==
Custom items

==Current User==
List pages: Profile, Dashboard, My Comments, Help, Logout

==Alerts==
We really need a place to report all site items. Right now menu items with numbers makes no since at all. We could really use this for everything.

==Settings==
Pages: Settings, Tools, Plugins, Appearance, Plugin Pages

keyboard shortcuts: L or F like post comment
