You can use Navbar to add shortcuts to your plugin options, comments or other frequently accessed WordPress screens or posts on your blog.

Especially interesting is 3rd party plugin integration as more information can be added to the Navbar info area. On next screenshot you can see integration with Plugin Central where it displays a link to automatically upgrade all of your outdated plugins at once.

    This is awesome!

    Also, I see that you use the compact view for the wordpress icons. You might want to try out a plugin called Ozh' Admin Dropdown Menu. It turns the wordpress menu into a quick and handy one. It's like the first plugin I install whenever I make a new blog. Try it out.

    Hi Vladimir!

    I'm going to download now. I did not try the plugin yet.
    But, what I could see on the video, this is the plugin I was looking for.
    I have Xsite pro 2 and this plugin is similar because you see the website and at the same time
    you see controls of the wordpress and it seems that you have more control.

    Great job!

    Thanks for this great plugin.

    It worked when I used on WordPress MU 2.7.1 but on WordPress MU 2.8.4a I have to refresh the screen manually at the end.

    Separators can be deleted by simply drag and dropping them to trash like any link.

    Hi, Vladimir! I like your plugin, and want to localize him to russian language. Bot when i run "xgettext" mi outpot .po file has been empty. Why you don't use "__" or "_e" functions? If you are interesterd in localization your plugin and update "navbar" with this functions - tell me please, and i translate him to russian.

    Hey Vladimir,

    Great plugin! The fact that you can add any link to it makes it really usefull. I found one tiny bug though, it seems that you cannot delete separators? Or am I missing something?

    kind regards,

Have your say
