Turbo Admin

Description

The command palette that gives super fast access to your WordPress Dashboard.

Usage

Install, activate and then:

  • Windows: Ctrl-Alt-Shift-P (Linux also?)
  • Mac: Cmd-Alt-Shift-P

You can customise the keyboard combination used in the settings in your user profile. Be careful not to choose a keyboard combination already used by your browser.

Close the palette with Escape, clicking outside of it, or pressing Ctrl/Cmd-Alt-Shift-P (or your custom key combination) again

Hover over the snail in the admin bar for a reminder of your shortcut at any time.

Turbo Admin: The command palette that gives super fast access to your WordPress Dashboard.

Ugh, this Dashboard menu is so cluttered?

Where is everything?

Is it in Tools? Or Settings? Or some menu of it’s own?

How am I supposed to work with this clutter?

If the WordPress Dashboard is slowing you down, Turbo Admin is here to speed you up.

A customisable key-combination launches a command palette with all your menu items.

Fuzzy search helps you find items even when you’re not sure what they are called.

If you’ve used AlfredApp or Spotlight or the command palette in your text editor or IDE, you’ll know the benefits of a tool like this and you’ll quickly feel at home.

Install… activate… work faster!

How does it work?

Install the plugin and activate it and then press Ctrl-Alt-Shift-P (or Cmd-Alt-Shift-P on a Mac) to open the palette.

The keyboard shortcut can be customised from settings in your user profile. Be careful not to choose a keyboard combination already used by your browser.

You can:
– type to filter the commands
– use up and down arrows to select an item
– press enter to select an item
– hit escape (no too hard) to close the palette

I’d love it if…

Yes, yes, there are lots of enhancements planned. Keep an eye out for updates.

Do I really have to install this on EVERY site?

It’s funny you ask. I’m working on a browser extension that will let you have a command palette on every wp-admin without having to install anything!

Installation

The easiest way to install this is to:

  1. Search for it on the plugin directory
  2. Install it
  3. Activate it

If you’re reading this then you’ve probably already done step 1. So what are you waiting for?

I searched for this solution, and tried a couple of plugins. This one has won me over. Easy to use (especially since you can choose your own shortcut keys) and looks and works perfectly. Massively time saving. Great work!
