Multisite Toolbar Additions

Adds a lot useful admin links to the WordPress Toolbar / Admin Bar in Multisite, Network and single site installs. Comes with extended plugin support!

Installation Steps

  1. Installing alternatives:
    • via Admin Dashboard: Go to 'Plugins > Add New', search for "Multisite Toolbar Additions", click "install"
    • OR via direct ZIP upload: Upload the ZIP package via 'Plugins > Add New > Upload' in your WP Admin
    • OR via FTP upload: Upload multisite-toolbar-additions folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. In your Network Dashboard network activate the plugin through the (Network) 'Plugins' menu -- or in a sub site dashboard: per-site activate this plugin through the (Site) 'Plugins' menu
  3. Look at your toolbar / admin bar within the "My Sites" menu and enjoy using the new links there :)
  4. If you want you could add a special custom Nav Menu via "Design > Menus" (best if using the main site of your Network for that) and assign it to the new "Multisite Toolbar Menu" menu location (only visible & accessable for Super Admins!). (See FAQ here for more instructions)
  5. Go and manage your Multisite Network :)

Please note, this plugin requires WordPress 3.3 or higher in order to work!

Also note: This plugin has NO settings page because I believe it's just not neccessarry. All customizing could be done via filters, constants and regular WordPress user roles & capabilities. As the plugin is only indended for a Super Admin (Network Admin) usage - that's the way to go. This way we can save the overhaul of an options panel/settings page, additional database requests, uninstall routines and such. End result: a lightweight system that just works and saves clicks & time :-).

Multisite install: Of course, it's fully compatible but have a look in the FAQ section here for more info :)

Single install: The plugin WILL also working like a charm for regular non-Multisite installs - just without the network specific stuff. However, there's still A LOT (single) site specific stuff supported. So it's up to your use case :). -- I for myself use this plugin on each and every install because it SAVES ME A LOT OF CLICKS & TIME! ...and that was the very reason I've developed it, yeah :-)

Own translation/wording: For custom and update-secure language files please upload them to /wp-content/languages/multisite-toolbar-additions/ (just create this folder) - This enables you to use fully custom translations that won't be overridden on plugin updates. Also, complete custom English wording is possible with that, just use a language file like multisite-toolbar-extras-en_US.mo/.po to achieve that (for creating one see the tools on "Other Notes").
