This plugin will add a “Settings” to every active plugin listed on the “Plugins” page (right next to the “Deactivate” and “Edit” links). This makes it easy to acccess plugin configuration without hunting through the entire dashboard menu.
The plugin finds the right page to link to by automatically scanning through the WordPress menu structure to detect configuration-related plugin pages. Lab trials shown success rate of over 95%.
Additional notes :
- Quick Configuration Links will automatically skip plugins that already add their own custom link(s) to their “Plugins” page listing.
- If a plugin has only one menu entry, the “Settings” link will always point to that page – even it has nothing to do with configuration. This is by design.
Install it just like any other plugin :
- Download the .zip archive and extract it.
- Upload the
quick-configuration-linksdirectory to the
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
You may need to refresh the page before the “Settings” will appear.
