would it be possible to add the options to enable/disable this for both the front-end and back-end of the site? For example, I’d like to use it on the front-end of the site while I don’t have access to the standard admin sidebars, but would like to turn it off on the admin back-end. That would be fantastic.
It could be possible, however, the effect is mostly done with css and since the standard admin navigation is not on the front end, I’m not sure how it would work. If there is a way to load the left side admin nav on the front (similar to the toolbar), then this would be a lot more possible.
I’ll look into seeing if the left admin nav can be loaded on the front end. If you know of a plugin that does that, feel free to comment back here and let me know.
However, the formatting on this is sometimes affected by the theme in use, and I would also prefer a more compact solution, so if it can be done (maybe using what the above plugin does?), it would be perfect.
