WordPress Admin Bar Plugin Now Distributed With WPMU

My decently popular WordPress Admin Bar has been forked into the core of WPMU. Changes/improvements made to my standard plugin will likely be ported over, but I’m not going to bother with porting over any WPMU-specific code back to my plugin since it’s in the WPMU core now.

Best of all for me, this means I can hand off the baton for the WPMU-specific code I had been dreading writing (bar showing up on all blogs, etc.). I haven’t fiddled around with WPMU code too much, so to be frank I wasn’t the best person for the job. With it being a part of the WPMU core, it can now more easily be contributed to by the contributors to WPMU.

The bad news is now even more people will be seeing and using my plugin which means I need to stop slacking and make the improvements I’ve been meaning to do. D’oh.

  1. Congratulations on the inclusion! It’s a welcome addition!

    I noticed problems with WPMU’s new Admin Menu providing incorrect links to sub pages (links to wpmu-admin.php?page=wpmu-blogs.php instead of wpmu-blogs.php). It’s discussed in this post about Admin Bar.

    NOTE: This problem was noticed using WPMU trunk-r1617 (not the WPMU 2.7 tagged release). I have not yet had a chance to test the released version, so it may be fixed.

  2. Very nice Plugin, thanx a lot.
    I propose you some improvements:
    1) Show the bar also you are not logged in, showing the link to register and log in
    2) Add a new field in the admin bar, something like “my blogs”, to show a list of clikkable blogs filled in the admin panel.
    Thanx in advance.
    ciao

    I consider the version of my plugin that’s included in WPMU as a fork, similar how WPMU is compared to regular WordPress. Code changes made in the regular version (of both my plugin and WordPress) will get ported over to the WPMU version, but rarely the other way around.

    As such, any WPMU-specific features (such as the ones you suggested) should be taken up on the WPMU Trac rather than with me as WPMU isn’t my strong point.

  4. mine suggestion was for the wordpress stand alone version :-)
    My fault I didn’t explain very well my thought :-)
    I have 3 blogs and I write on another 2 blogs the idea was to have in the menu something like “my ring” or “me on the internet” where visitors could click and find me elsewhere :-)
    ciao and thanx again for the fantastic plugin.
    ciao

  5. Ah… Thanks for the reply. Actually, I just installed the release version onto another site last night, and WordPress-Admin-Bar works *great*. Thank you!

    BTW, this comment indicated a possibility that you might add the ability to [x] Always show standard WordPress Admin Menu in the Admin Area. I don’t know offhand what that’d take to implement, but it’d be a helpful addition…

    Thanks again for your hard work to make WordPress (and WordPress MU!) better!

    That doesn’t apply anymore. My plugin doesn’t (or at least shouldn’t) hide anything anymore as WordPress 2.7 supports collapsing the admin menu out of the way if you don’t want to use it.
