    Hi ctekmusic,

    There are no template tags for the switching links. You can achieve it with something simple like this though:

    global $user_switching;
    if ( $user_switching->get_old_user() )
    echo '<a href="' . $user_switching->switch_back_url() . '">Switch Back</a>';

    +1 for a shortcode to insert a switch back link.

    OK... I implemented a shortcode to insert a switchback link.

    You can call it from PHP like this, with or without a custom message:

    <?php echo do_shortcode( "[switch_back_link]" ) ?>
    <?php echo do_shortcode( "[switch_back_link]WARNING: Don't use the logout button![/switch_back_link]" ) ?>

    To do this, I added this line in __construct():

    add_shortcode('switch_back_link', array($this,'switch_back_link_shortcode'));

    I initially wrote switch_back_link_shortcode() as a call to admin_notice() wrapped in ob_start() ... ob_end_clean(), but I couldn't get it to work. The script quietly aborted in or around admin_notice(). Probably something a more experienced PHP programmer would figure out, but it stumped me. So I just copied the guts of admin_notice() into my function. Not elegant, but gets me what I need.

    function switch_back_link_shortcode ($atts, $content = null) {
    		global $user_identity, $user_login;
    
    		ob_start();
    
    		if ( $old_user = $this->get_old_user() ) {
    			?>
    			<div id="user_switching" class="updated">
    				<p><?php
    					if ( isset( $_GET['user_switched'] ) )
    						printf( __( 'Switched to %1$s (%2$s).', 'user_switching' ), $user_identity, $user_login );
    						printf( ' <a href="%s">%s</a>.%s', $this->switch_back_url(),
    							sprintf( __( 'Switch back to %1$s (%2$s)', 'user_switching' ),
    							$old_user->display_name, $old_user->user_login ),
    							(!is_null($content) ? " <span>$content</span>" : "" )
    						);
    				?></p>
    			</div>
    			<?php
    
    		} else if ( isset( $_GET['user_switched'] ) ) {
    
    			?>
    			<div id="user_switching" class="updated">
    				<p><?php
    					if ( isset( $_GET['switched_back'] ) )
    						printf( __( 'Switched back to %1$s (%2$s).', 'user_switching' ), $user_identity, $user_login );
    					else
    						printf( __( 'Switched to %1$s (%2$s).', 'user_switching' ), $user_identity, $user_login );
    				?></p>
    			</div>
    			<?php
    
    		}
    
    		$sb_link = ob_get_contents();
    
    		ob_end_clean();
    
    		return $sb_link;
    
    	}

    I've not tested this extensively, but it does work in header.php while switched and not.

    John - Feel free to use or adapt this in any way you would like in your module. I'd rather abandon my branch if you do.

    I needed to switch to one user account easily for every admin user.
    I searched how to display a "switch to" link in admin notice and i found.

    I don't know if someone need this but i share my code, insert to line 225 juste after

    <div id="user_switching" class="updated">
    				<p><?php
    					if ( isset( $_GET['switched_back'] ) )
    						printf( __( 'Switched back to %1$s (%2$s).', 'user_switching' ), $user_identity, $user_login );
    					else
    						printf( __( 'Switched to %1$s (%2$s).', 'user_switching' ), $user_identity, $user_login );
    				?></p>
    			</div>
    			<?php
    
    		}

    i added this lines

    else {
    		//switch to timothee <a href="' . $this->switch_to_url( $user->ID ) . '">'. _e( 'Switch To', 'user_switching' ).'</a>
    		?>
    		<div id="user_switching" class="updated">
    				<p><?php
    
    				if ( current_user_can( 'switch_to_user', 1 ) )
    					printf( '<a href="' . $this->switch_to_url( 1 ) . '">' . __( 'Switch To', 'user_switching' ) . ': Timothée</a>');
    				?></p>
    			</div>
    		<?//end of switch to timothee
    		}

    The number 1 is the ID account of the user i want to switch. It appear two times you have to change it if needed.
    The username of this account is Timothée so i wrote Timothée you have to change it too, or simply erase it.

    I think the code is without security problem can someone confirm that ?
    I'm sorry for my English, especially if there are mistakes.
