Adds a lot useful admin links to the WordPress Toolbar / Admin Bar in Multisite, Network and single site installs. Comes with extended plugin support!


Quick Access to Super Admin Resources – Time Saver!

This small and lightweight plugin just adds some missed and very useful admin links to your Toolbar / Admin Bar in Multisite installs, and even regular single site installs.
Also included is support for some awesome, useful third-party plugins out of the box. So you might just switch from the backend or frontend of your site to the ‘Network Wide Plugins’ or access the ‘Nav Menu’ Settings of a sub site/blog. To make you even more happy, the plugin also works just perfectly in single WordPress installs (non-Multisite context), just fewer menu items then… —> Use this time saver and get quicker access 🙂

NOTE: This plugin is only intended towards Super Admins / Admins.
