okay I havent purchased this yet, oh but I will be, I literally thought this was a desktop app to run your site, nope A PLUGIN THAT BEHAVES LIKE A DESKTOP! absolute legend.

Thank you very much ! :)

I would like to purchase this plugin. but I need to allow me
- change the name of the icon on desktop background
- fully hide the the left panel completely

I sent a new update that adds an option to show images as desktop background. It can now do it :)

last point before purchasing, can I make the desktop for all users and visitors without needed to signup or login?

No, on WordPress users must be registered to access to the backend side.

Are there any plans on updating the plugin to work with the current version of Wordpress. Shortcut creation, right clicking, among other things seems to no longer function.

It normally works with the last WP version. If you need support, please contact me from the support page by using the account that has active support rights, I will debug it :

I have php 8.1 maybe that’s the problem?

also why none of the videos added to as wallpaper not working I have try all the link types YouTube gives….

The plugin doesn’t sound to be correctly installed, it can’t find the corresponding tables in the database. Please contact me from the support page by using the account that has active support rights, I will debug it :

other than the support option , is there a diffrence between getting it on elements vs getting it here ? thanks

The only differences are the automatic updates from the Wordpress plugins page and the support (they are only available with a Codecanyon license).

I don’t see a changelog. Would you mind pointing it out to me? Thanks

This update contains only code improvements to meet the new Envato technical standards.

Thank you.

This is great. When it is possible to white label this, I will buy


I’m wondering if there is ability to delete or, hide a particular sectin from WP dashobard or not?

No, there is no specific option to hide menu links currently.

Can your plugin restrict buttons or functions of the main Wordpress menu (by user roles)?

No, sorry, there is no specific option to do that currently.

Hi I know you do not offer support for this, I have just installed from Elements and was wondering if it is the most up to date version? As Bookmarks don’t save to the desktop or do they open once saved? Thanks.

Yes, Elements uses the last version of the plugin. There is probably a conflict somewhere .

this plug in res on front end private area?(logged users)

It modifies only the backend side (for logged users who have access to WP backend) .

Any plans to support the browser back button? Forward and back buttons do not work on active window, even if right clicking in frame and using context menu (as would normally work on an iFrame.

The lack of routing makes for a frustrating experience – to get back to a previous step you always have to open a new window and start over.

I replied to your support request by email .

Hello loopus,

Is there an update scheduled to be released soon for this product? A refresh and / or some new features? I’m interested to purchase a licence for each customer that we have and offer them a more friendly backend.

Thank you!

No, sorry, there is no specific update planned for this plugin currently. It already has a lot of options and features.

Hello. I have enabled the plugin at one of my sites, but I have run into an issue. When enabled, causes white screen if I enable any plugin, If I reload the page, it works, but there must be an issue causing it (if gives the white screen when I first activated it too). Another strange behavior is if I enable a plugin like buddypress, it won’t show it on the settings/submenu, I have to reload to see it. I don’t want the site to breakdown suddenly. The site is a subsite of a network. I tested to be sure there is no conflict with another plugin, by disabling them all and see if the issue persist and it does. Is it possible the plugin doesn’t work if a site is a subsite of a network?? Please advise.

Feel free to contact me from the support page of the plugin by using the buyer account that has support rights, I will debug it .

Hi there, is this a plugin suitable for Multisites?

On multisite installations, it must be activated from the WP plugins panel of each website, not from the network admin one.

I see thank you.

When I use “bookmarked” and try to open it from the desktop, the “bookmarked” done does not work.

Please can you contact me from the support page of the plugin, sending me a temporary access to the wp backend ? I will debug it.

Does not work does not appear in Plugins (current version that I have WordPress 5.3.2 )

fix it by uploading the zip file

This plugin is really smart and useful. The only issue I faced with it is that It disables or conflicts with REST api

When activated a lot of functions based on REST api will stop working. I hope you look at this issue because I really like this plugin.

I got it from envato elements. I know I can’t get support for it but at least now you know what’s wrong with it.

Yes, it doesn’t support REST API currently. Thank you for the suggestion.

Pre-sale question, any new update on this please and is there a plan to add new features as well?

No, sorry, there is no specific update planned currently.
