Starting in WordPress 2.7, a menu is included in the upper-right corner of the Admin. The menu, by default, includes links allowing easy access to frequently used pages in the Admin. But there isn’t an option to add your own links!
Favorites Menu Manager allows you unfettered customization of that dropdown menu. You can easily add your own links, remove existing ones, and put them in the order you desire. Customizations are stored on a per-user basis, so each user can have their own collection of frequently used links.
- Unzip the download and FTP the entire “favorites-manager” directory to your WordPress blog’s plugins folder (/wp-content/plugins/).
- Activate the plugin on the “Plugins” tab of the Admin.
Visit the Users -> Edit Favorites Menu page of the Admin to add, remove, and reorder items in the Favorite Actions menu.
The easiest way to add a new item is to visit the page you wish to add, then choose the “Bookmark This” option from the menu. You will be taken to a Manage Favorites Menu screen, where you can adjust the name of the menu item before pressing the button to accept.
Be careful of the Remove links when managing the menu. The item will be removed immediately. You will NOT be prompted.
