Quick Access to bbPress Forums Resources - Time Saver!
This small and lightweight plugin just adds a lot bbPress 2.x related resources to your toolbar / admin bar. Also links to all setting/ tab pages of the plugin are added making life for forum administrators/ moderators a lot easier. So you might just switch from the fontend of your site to your 'Forums', 'Topics' or 'Main Settings' page or even plugin extensions etc.
- The plugin is primarily intended towards forum admins and webmasters.
- Support for all native bbPress 2.x plugin settings plus a huge list of supported plugins & themes out of the box (see below for full listing).
- A massive list of resource & community links is included: support forums, videos/tutorials, code snippets, translations etc.
- A special - fully conditional - "Manage Groups" group where plugins like hook in.
- The added menu items added via my 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!
- 5 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).
- 10 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 Multisite compatible, you can also network-enable it - full support of Multisite specific stuff!
- Fully WPML compatible!
- Tested with WordPress versions 3.2-branch, 3.3.1, 3.3.2 and 3.4-beta releases - also in debug mode (no stuff there, ok? :)
- Not only supporting official bbPress 2.x sites, ALSO third-party and user links - so just the whole bbPress 2.x ecosystem :)
- Link to downloadable German language packs - only displayed when German locales are active (de_DE, de_AT, de_CH, de_LU)
- Link to official German bbPress forum - only displayed when German locales are active (de_DE, de_AT, de_CH, de_LU)
- NOTE: I would be happy to add more language/locale specific resources and more useful third-party links - just contact me!
As the name suggests this plugin is intended towards forum admins/ webmasters and moderators. The new admin bar entries will only be displayed if the current user has the bbPress/ WordPress capability of
moderate. (Note: I am open for suggestions here if this should maybe changed to a more suitable capability.)
