There’s no use denying it: ExpressionEngine’s control panel, or CP, can be a little daunting, even if you’ve been using EE for years. Which is why I like Jesse Bennett-Chamberlain’s simplified CP theme so much. While it doesn’t do much, if anything, to address the CP’s underlying architecture, it does clean things up and reduce some of the CP’s visual clutter — which is not nothing. I recently installed it on Opus, and like it so much that I’ll probably be using it for client sites that aren’t running EE 2.x (the theme only works with EE 1.6.x).
