WordPress Admin Bar

Deprecated / dead plugin.

Version 3.1.12

  • Fix the generation of URLs to use & instead of ? where necessary. Thanks to lucasm for reporting this.

Version 3.1.11

  • The theme editor is added using the API but yet is it's own script. This was breaking the link in the admin bar. Add a manual exclusion for this particular item (ugly, but it works).

Version 3.1.10

  • Fix broken dashboard link. Need to check !empty(), not isset(). Thanks to @LuisTheDude for reporting the issue.

Version 3.1.9

  • Update for WordPress 3.0.
  • Bug fix for children of custom top-level menu items.
  • Italian transation thanks to Gianni.

Version 3.1.8

  • Don't do anything within the comments popup. Props spencersokol.

And yes I'm aware this plugin will need updating for WordPress 3.0. :)

Version 3.1.7

  • PHP notice fixes.
  • Added Japanese translation thanks to Naoko McCracken.

Version 3.1.6

Update for WordPress 2.8.

  • Moved the settings page to Tools as that menu is available to all users including subscribers.
  • Updated the jQuery checkboxes plugin.
  • Add a new global to WPAdminBar::SetupMenu() to fix a notice and warning about taxononmies. Props rovo89.
  • Hide seperators as they aren't true menu items

Version 3.1.5

  • Start plugin slightly later so plugins like Gengo that aren't hooking in early enough (use priorities!) can get their stuff done first.
  • Notice fixes.

Version 3.1.4

  • Fix HTML validation error. Props Flashbytes.
  • Add filter to default settings.

Version 3.1.3

  • Adjust settings page unordered list CSS for WordPress 2.7 (add some padding to children menu items).

Version 3.1.2

  • Make the log out link work correctly (use the function that'll produce a nonce'd URL).

Version 3.1.1

  • Version 3.0.3 should have been 3.1.0, so this is 3.1.1.
  • Wrap parenthesis around the number of plugins needing updating to make it clearer.

Version 3.0.5

  • Forgot to finish making the settings form redirect back to the form after saving. Fixed.
  • Don't hide the default navigation menu in the admin area any more even if this plugin is being used there. Just collapse it if you don't want to see it.
  • Force some settings page stylings for WordPress 2.7.

Version 3.0.4

  • Remove debug code (sorry!).
  • Fix a little big.

Version 3.0.3

  • Update for WordPress 2.7. No new features or anything, this was just an "emergency" release.

Version 3.0.2

  • Fix navigation tabs being hidden in the media uploader.
  • Add a link to the Settings page next to the plugin (de)activation link.
  • Minor code improvements.

Version 3.0.1

  • Fix display issues in IE. Props Mark.
  • Don't allow this plugin's menu item to be hidden in the admin area, otherwise it'd be possible to hide all menus and not easily be able to get them back.
  • Hide the "Dashboard" tab in the upper-left on non-WPMU installs if the admin bar is enabled in the admin area.

Version 3.0.0

  • Complete recode from scatch. Changes too many to list (themes, options page, etc.)

Version 2.0.5

  • position: fixed made the cursor not show up in input boxes. The default has been changed to position: absolute which means it will no longer stick at the top of your screen when you scroll.

Version 2.0.4

  • Some CSS added in 2.0.3 hides the comments in moderation count if it's 0, but the plugin was still adding parathensis regardless. This has been fixed.

Version 2.0.3

  • Added a tweak to put parathensis around the comments in moderation count in WordPress 2.5.
  • Some CSS, image, and code improvements.

Version 2.0.2

  • Need to include_once() rather than include() to avoid having all menu items being listed twice in the admin area if this plugin is enabled there. Props Nigel Kane.

Version 2.0.1

  • Support added for using this plugin in your admin area. Just edit the plugin file and uncomment the two hooks as described in the file.

Version 2.0.0

  • Plugin renamed to "WordPress Admin Bar" to avoid any confusion that this plugin is officially related to WordPress.com.
  • Complete recode from scratch. Everything is dynamic now and pulled directly from the regular admin area.

Version 1.0.3

  • Support for Democracy added as well as the upcoming WordPress v2.1.

Version 1.0.2

  • Support for more plugins added, including Akismet (thanks Paul for reminding me).

Version 1.0.1

  • All CSS declarations in the CSS file are now marked as !important to make sure to overwrite your theme’s declarations and make the admin bar display correctly.

Version 1.0.0

  • Initial release.
