Quick Access to bbPress Forums Resources – Time Saver!
This small and lightweight plugin just adds a lot bbPress 2.x related resources to your toolbar / admin bar. Also links to all setting/ tab pages of the plugin are added making life for forum administrators/ moderators a lot easier. So you might just switch from the fontend of your site to your ‘Forums’, ‘Topics’ or ‘Main Settings’ page or even plugin extensions etc.
- The plugin is primarily intended towards forum admins and webmasters.
- Support for all native bbPress 2.x plugin settings plus a huge list of supported plugins & themes out of the box (see below for full listing).
- A massive list of resource & community links is included: support forums, videos/tutorials, code snippets, translations etc.
- A special – fully conditional – “Manage Groups” group where plugins like hook in.
- The added menu items added via my plugin follow the same user cabalities as their original links – in other words: if a link to a settings page is not displayed without my plugin for a certain user role/capability it won’t be when my plugin is active!
- 5 action hooks included for hooking custom menu items in — for all main sections plus the resource group section (see FAQ section here for more info on that).
- 10 additional icon colors included 🙂 (changeable via filters)
- 7 filters included to change wording/tooltip and icon of the main item – for more info see FAQ section here
- For custom “branding” or special needs a few sections like “Extensions” and “Resource links group” could be hidden from displaying via your active theme/child theme – for more info see FAQ section here
- Fully internationalized! Real-life tested and developed with international users in mind! Also supports update-secure custom language file (if you need special wording…)
- Fully Multisite compatible, you can also network-enable it – full support of Multisite specific stuff!
- Fully WPML compatible!
- Tested with WordPress versions 3.2-branch, 3.3.1, 3.3.2 and 3.4-beta releases – also in debug mode (no stuff there, ok? 🙂
- Not only supporting official bbPress 2.x sites, ALSO third-party and user links – so just the whole bbPress 2.x ecosystem 🙂
- Link to downloadable German language packs – only displayed when German locales are active (de_DE, de_AT, de_CH, de_LU)
- Link to official German bbPress forum – only displayed when German locales are active (de_DE, de_AT, de_CH, de_LU)
- NOTE: I would be happy to add more language/locale specific resources and more useful third-party links – just contact me!
As the name suggests this plugin is intended towards forum admins/ webmasters and moderators. The new admin bar entries will only be displayed if the current user has the bbPress/ WordPress capability of
moderate. (Note: I am open for suggestions here if this should maybe changed to a more suitable capability.)

For translating I recommend the awesome “Codestyling Localization” plugin and for validating the “Poedit Editor”, which works fine on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Idea Behind / Philosophy: Just a little leightweight plugin for all the bbPress Forum managers out there to make their daily forum admin life a bit easier. I’ll try to add more plugin/theme support if it makes some sense. So stay tuned :).
