The Ultimate Toolbar Plugin - And the WordPress Toolbar can finally be part of your Social Network site
Customize the WordPress Toolbar the way you want...
This plugin is targetted for WP Symposium sites. However, if you're not running a Social Network site but you're willing to customize the Toolbar, you may use this plugin and benefit from its generic per-role settings, its custom menus, as well as its styling settings. Give this plugin a try!
When I began this project, I was aiming at primarily providing WP Symposium sites with a little more functionality. I needed to ensure WP Symposium is actually activated, and what was initially a safeguard eventually became a feature : WP Symposium Toolbar can function as a stand alone plugin as well as integrate with WP Symposium.

On top of all this, style the Toolbar beyond the limits of your imagination: colours, gradients, shadow, fonts can all be changed from the Styles settings page, which by the way has a nice real-time preview mode for you to play with the styling before actually saving...
You are no longer bound to showing to your members information you don't want them to see. You are no longer bound to using just a theme navbar for navigating your site, or network of sites. You are no longer bound to displaying that dark bar that doesn't fit with the overall look of your site. You are no longer bound to configuring several plugins to make the Toolbar at your wishes.
My warm thanks go to Louis, my friend at Central Geek, for his help in specifying and testing the plugin. He's always been available with wise advices whenever I was needing them, so that WPS Toolbar is as much his plugin as it is mine.
