Enhanced Meta Widget

This plugin replaces the meta sidebar included with WordPress, and displays links based upon user roles.

This plugin replaces the meta sidebar included with WordPress, and displays links based upon user roles.

For logged in users all links are based upon that user's role/permissions. Can the user write posts? A link for "Write Post" is presented. On a post/page that the user can edit? There are links for "Edit Post" or "Edit Page". If the user is an administrator, then there are links to all the main sections of the administrator pages, plus a few of the subsections like "Manage Widgets" and "Manage Drafts".

If a user is not logged in can present a log-in form or simple link to the standard login page, as well as a link to register (if allowed in site settings).

There are also links for the standard entries and comments RSS feeds, as well as to wordpress.org, like in the original meta widget.

All links can be turned on/off, and a different title for the sidebar widget can be set.

Enhanded Meta Widget is also a multi-widget -- it can be used in multiple instances on the same or different sidebars. Want your admin links only on a right-hand sidebar, but your general meta links on the left? Can be done. Want one widget just for the standard meta RSS and wordpress.org links, and a section below, with a different title for admin links? That can be done too, just add two separate widgets to the same sidebar and enable different options.

This widget is fully internationalized. A list of current languages can be found in Other Notes, the Faq, or at the end of the readme.txt file. If anyone is willing to translate for me, please contact me or follow the directions found at the plugin homepage (see Faq).

This plugin was developed using ideas gathered from a number of different WordPress plugins. Credits and Copyright information can be found in Other Notes (or at the end of the readme.txt file).
