Support » Plugins » plugin for admin functions in blog sidebar?

  • I was just wondering, is there a plugin for wordpress that lets you put popular admin functions in your blogs sidebar?

    I’ve seen admin dashboard plugins, but could that be put in the sidebar as well?

    what I mean by popular admin functions, things like making a post for instance..

    I know I could put that link in there manually, but that isn’t what I am asking, I am asking if someone has written such a plugin? I’d also like to be able to edit posts by pushing an “edit” button in my blog, that type of thing, has anyone written such a plugin?

    if not, its ok, I can do that stuff manually, I was just wondering if such a plugin existed

  • thanks, so much for the plugin information 🙂 but I don’t want to do a quickpost, just a link to the write new post page is fine for that. I thought maybe one of the dashbard plugins would work with the sidebar “shrugs” thanks anyway

    I’ve never tried them that way, but nothing to stop you trying it out, just make backups first!

    yeah I did, couldn’t get it to work.

    I could write my own plugin to do that, if there isn’t one, only thing I don’t know, is how to check if the user is admin or not?

    I thought about doing

    if (‘admin’ == $user_id) {
    something here;

    but what if the admin changes his name? then what?

    I think you’d be better advised to check for the admin role-level which is 10. And no, I don’t know how to code that, you can check on the role-level stuff in codex to be sure you’ve got it right, and maybe Kafkaesquí or Otto can help you with the actual statements.

    well, I hope so, because I sure can’t seem to figure it out.

    That plugin seems to only work for anyone logged in, which isn’t what I was looking for anyway, what I was looking for was a plugin for the sidebar for admin only type functions. or those with post author privileges. On my blog, thats only me. I wanted to hide it for everyone else.

    This is how you test on user level:
