Free Admin Template For Web Applications


Rather than standard website templates, a free admin template is nearly impossible to find.

This is an admin template which you can use for web applications like:

  • E-commerce projects
  • Content management systems
  • And more..

Free Admin Template

Demo Admin Template


I have created this admin template for a project of mine and pleased to share with WebResourcesDepot readers.

It is a 3 column design with a tabbed menu. The idea is having the standard categories in the tab menu for an easy reach and have all the detailed ones in the left menu. And there is an info box at the right to inform users what’s going on at that page.

You can customize it however you want to fit your project. It has a listing and a new entry sample which covers %99 of an admin screen.

It is free to use the template in commercial projects & no backlinks required (the template itself can not be sold or re-distributed). If you want to say thanks for it and like WebResourcesDepot, I prefer that you keep subscribed to the feed and get the free resources everyday.

Icons used are famfamfam icons.

You can check it live here.

P.S. If you share the template on your website, please don’t give a direct link to the file and give the link to the post. Thanks.

    That was my only problem, as programmer I don’t want to focus on the layout design for the admin panel, I just want to make it work. Thank you very much.

    Nice to see that you liked it.

    I believe that admin panels don’t need to be unique, but they need to be functional.

    Hope the template helps you concentraing on the functions :).

    Just what i need… when i need it. Nice timing.

    As some body said, i can now focus on functionalities.

    You can use it anyway you want other than selling the template itself as it is totally free.

    While I absolutely love the look and feel of this template I feel that after over 2 years of being available for download it may be time for an upgrade.

    I am currently reworking this template to use the new CSS3 standards to reduce the need for lots of extra images that make up the rounded corners.

    I know I cannot repackage as my own and distribute it but if @UmutM would like I can share with him to allow an alternative with new standards.

    @Giles Wells,

    I agree with you. Although it does the job, a lighter-frewsher one would mean a lot today.

    If you complete it, please let me know and I’ll be happy to put it to download (maybe create a new article with your help) and credit you back.
