Quick Access to BuddyPress Resources - Time Saver!
This small and lightweight plugin just adds a lot BuddyPress related resources to your toolbar / admin bar. Also links to all setting/ tab pages of the plugin are added making life for community managers/ administrators a lot easier. So you might just switch from the fontend of your site to 'Activity Moderating' (BP 1.6+), 'Groups Admin' (BP 1.7+) or the 'Main Settings' page etc.
- The plugin is primarily intended towards (multisite) admins and webmasters.
- Support for all native BuddyPress settings plus a huge list of supported plugins & themes out of the box (see below for full listing).
- Fully Multisite compatible, you can also network-enable it - full support of Multisite specific stuff!
- A massive list of resource & community links is included: support forums, code snippets, translations etc.
- A special - fully conditional - "Manage Groups" group where plugins like hook in.
- The added menu items by the plugin follow the same user cabalities as their original links - in other words: if a link to a settings page is not displayed without my plugin for a certain user role/capability it won't be when my plugin is active!
- 4 action hooks included for hooking custom menu items in -- for all main sections plus the resource group section (see FAQ section here for more info on that).
- 11 additional icon colors included :) (changeable via filters)
- 7 filters included to change wording/tooltip and icon of the main item - for more info see FAQ section here
- For custom "branding" or special needs a few sections like "Extensions" and "Resource links group" could be hidden from displaying via your active theme/child theme - for more info see FAQ section here
- Fully internationalized! Real-life tested and developed with international users in mind! Also supports update-secure custom language file (if you need special wording...)
- Fully WPML compatible!
- Tested with WordPress branches 3.6 Beta, 3.5+, 3.4+ and 3.3+ - also in debug mode (no stuff there, ok? :)
The plugin is fully compatible with the latest WordPress version 3.4+/ 3.5+ and therefore with BuddyPress 1.6+ and 1.7+. It's also still compatible with former BP branch 1.5 (and WP 3.3+) but we always recommend to run the latest versions. The plugin dynamically supports the different admin settings links in BOTH BuddyPress versions! -- So, just go and manage your community. Use this time saver! :-)
As the name suggests this plugin is intended towards community managers/ webmasters and administrators. The new toolbar / admin bar items will only be displayed if the current user has the WordPress role/cabability of
administrator. (Note: This can be customized via helper functions/constants, see FAQ here.)
