WP Admin Quicklinks

Adds an unobtrusive floating panel to the top-right of every page on your live site (once you're logged in) for easy access to parts of your admin.

WP Admin Quicklinks is a very simple unobtrusive little admin panel that sits quietly at the top-right of all your site's pages and posts (only once you've logged in) giving you shortcuts to the most commonly used WP Admin sections - well, the ones I was always needing to link to anyway.

Currently they are...

  • Edit this Post/Page (only shows if you're on a single post or a page)
  • Add new Post
  • Dashboard
  • Posts
  • Pages
  • Plugins
  • Log out

Do I need it? Aren't there lots of plugins that do this already?

Yes, there are lots of similar plugins, and as great as most of the ones I tried are, I found non of them were quite right for me. The two best ones I found were...

They're both very well made, highly customisable plugins that did the job but they have one thing in common which I personally didn't like - they both add a big thick admin bar across the top of each page, pushing your own layout down. This was no good for me as I didn't like the look of a big fat bar on the top of the pages I was working on - it made it harder to visualise how the page would actually look to an end user. I guess it comes down to personal preference.

Functionality wise they are better than my little plugin in that they give direct access to pretty much all the admin pages, but I prefer mine in terms of it's simplicity, and I like the fact that it doesn't spoil the look and feel or significantly alter the layout of the blog/site I'm working on.
