Help people navigate through the WordPress backend thanks to the pretty WordPress Pointers.

= About this plugin

= WordPress GPS tries to guide people throughout the WordPress admin jungle. Tell it what you want to do and let it show you the way, with the pretty WP Pointers feature.

= Features

= This plugin provides an admin panel with a scenario selection. It comes with some default scenarios, which will teach you for example how to:

  • add a new post
  • add a media
  • add an user
  • ...

Each scenario is defined with capabilities the user must have to play it: if the user doesn't have these capabilities, the scenario won't be in the select box.

WordPress GPS is available on Github: https://github.com/lpointet/WordPress-GPS Please feel free to send me pull requests, issues, evolution requests etc.


WordPress GPS provides some hooks to plugin writers:

  • a filter to add, remove or order the default scenarios (gb_gps_default_scenarios)
  • a function to create a new "pointer": gb_gps_create_pointer
  • a single function to register a new scenario: gb_gps_register_scenario

= gb\_gps\_create\_pointer



$args = array( 'pointers' => $pointers, 'label' => $label, 'description' => $description, 'capabilities' => array('edit_post'), );
