One of the new features in 2.5 is a revamped admin look, something that won’t sit well with every user of course. Not that today’s theme is perfect in any way, but change always makes users react, which is why there are some admin themes available.
That got me thinking. WordPress blogs are being used for more and more things, as is other blog platforms for that matter. Sometimes these new ways of using the platform means that you’ll want user to register and edit their details, which sends them into the one part of your site that isn’t controlled by your theme: The admin.
Some screenshots below. The customized register box (login box is similar) to the right is the one they’re using, which fits the style well enough I’d say.

If you’re going to let users register, style the admin to fit your site’s design! Common sense.
Does that mean that we’ll see premium admin themes released in the near future? Perhaps as addons to premium theme releases? What do you think?
And I said it first!
