Now-Reading Admin Bar Menu


With the introduction of the admin bar in WordPress 3.1, I wanted to have the links to the Now-Reading Reloaded’s various pages up on that bar. Since Ben has stated on his site that he is no longer actively developing the plugin, I decided to write this “mini-plugin” to add the links.

Special Thanks



  • Display Admin Bar links


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload mlm-nrAdminBar to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Do I have to install Now-Reading Reloaded too?

Yes. Now-Reading Admin Bar Menu (MLM) does not include any of the functionality of Now-Reading Reloaded. It simply adds the same backend menu links to the admin bar introduced in WordPress 3.1.

Will these links show up if I don’t have Now-Reading Reloaded plugin activated?

While I’ve not actually tested (this is version 0 after all), the links should not show if Now-Reading Reloaded is not installed & active. This plugin checks for the nr_check_versions function from Now-Reading Reloaded before it attempts to generate the admin bar menu.


There are no reviews for this plugin.
