WordPress 3.2: Bring Back Your Network Admin Link With Our Free Plugin

Network Administrators are going to be a little bit sad when they realise that their Network Admin/Site Admin button has been tucked away inside a dropdown menu in WordPress 3.2. Check out the image on the right to see where it is.

There are a few reasons why this isn’t such a good thing:

  • The presence of the button on the dashboard tells you quickly which dashboard you are on;
  • Network Admins on large networks need to quickly move around and one unnecessary mouse click is one too many.

It’s a problem we knew we’d encounter over at Edublogs and we created a free plugin to solve it. Check it out:

If you’d rather have a big round button we’ve included that as well. Just add the following code to your wp-config.php file above the line /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

define ('NSB_SHOW_BUTTON', true);
