Sticky Admin Sidebar

Description

This plugin solves the problem of when you have long pages/posts/custom posts edit screens in the WordPress admin, usually caused by lots of custom fields or plugins. Whenever you get down to the bottom of the page you need to scroll back up to the top to press the update or publish button. This plugin solves this problem by automatically scrolling the sidebar into view as you scroll the page.

Screenshots

  • Without the plugin you have to scroll back to the top to publish
  • With the plugin, the publish button is always visible

Installation

  1. Upload the sticky-admin-sidebar folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory or search for “Sticky Admin Sidebar” using the plugin install tool in your WordPress installation
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Simple, but very useful. Still works with WP 5.2 (you should SVN an update to the readme).

I use this plugin as a basic necessity on all of client sites. It's especially useful when working on a laptop with a smaller screen. I agree with a previous review who posed the question as to why this feature isn't native to WordPress. Kudos and many thanks to the developer!

I have been trying a variety of sticky plugins and this does work, with the exception that if I have an extremely long sidebar, I won't be able to access all of the sidebar's elements because the 'sticky' part floats too far. This is hopeful, but needs a little more work.

I use a lot of custom fields, and I'm tired to scroll the page up and down. Fortunately for myself I found this plugin. This plug-in simply doing his job. Thank you. P.S.: It is strange that so few people use this plugin. And it is strange that this functionality is not enabled in WordPress by default.
