Note of Plugin Discontinuation:
WordPress 3.1 features a built-in admin bar like this, so I will no longer continue development of this plugin. I recommend uninstalling this plugin as it will no longer be maintained.
This plugin creates an admin bar at the top of your site for logged in users (i.e. you) based on the design of the admin bar located at WordPress.com. It has links to all popular areas of the admin area, saving you time.
It requires no theme editing whatsoever — just upload and activate and you’re done.
Adding Custom Themes:
If you’re the author of a WordPress theme or just otherwise wish to add an custom admin bar theme of your own, please check out this plugin’s theme API.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Some plugins don’t show up in the admin bar. What gives?
A: The author of the problematic plugin has a
is_admin() test when creating their admin menu which means that if you’re outside of the admin area, their plugin won’t register it’s admin menu. Therefore it of course won’t show up in my admin bar. Contact them and ask them to remove the
is_admin() test (or do it yourself).
