Toolbar Publish Button

Description

Too often it turns out very inconvenient to scroll WordPress admin page back and forth in the quest for the big blue button to save latest changes.

Simple jQuery script of this plugin duplicates Update / Publish / Save Changes / Save Draft / Preview Changes button for posts, pages, custom posts, taxonomies, user profiles, and settings to the top WordPress admin bar, so that it stays on site while you are scrolling your admin page. The plugin options allow to keep the scrollbar position after saving.

The plugin is well-integrated with the Advanced Custom Fields, and capable to leave open ACF field groups after saving your edits.

The plugin does not affect any native WordPress functionality, it just redirects your click to the original button, and uses the current button text, of course, with the current language.

Plugin options allow:

  • to keep the scrollbar position after saving for admin pages including code Editor and Plugins page after plugin activation / deactivation,
  • to choose which buttons to show on the admin bar,
  • to set a background color for its buttons to highlight them.

Reviews

Very nice

Great stuff! The scroll-to-latest-position feature is worth 5 stars on its own and the fact that the button is always available is worth another 5.

Perfect!

Works pretty well. The pain of writing/editing posts is finally over. ANd this plugin deals with it with charm. Thanks a lot for it.

Efficace

Plugin très pratique, gain de temps et de manipulations.

Tiny greatness

Just found this plugin and made my first intstall. 2 min later I’ve decided to include this to my standard WP-install. Should really be part of the core.

Thanks for a perfect little plugin.
