Toolbar Extras for Oxygen Builder – Power Up Your Admin Bar

Toolbar Extras for Oxygen Builder – Power Up Your Admin Bar | David Decker – DECKERWEB


🚀 Quick Access to Your Oxygen Site Building Resources – Big Time Saver. Perfect for Non-Techies and Non-Coder Designers.
This smart WordPress plugin just adds some missed and very useful Oxygen-specific admin links to your Toolbar / Admin Bar. Save scrolling travel and time. Access settings and content pages faster from one central area in the Admin Dashboard AND when on the frontend of your site. Plus few optimizations for Oxygen’s own Toolbar within the Builder :-).

ℹ️ Essential: Toolbar Extras for Oxygen Builder is an Add-On plugin, it requires the base plugin “Toolbar Extras”.
ℹ️ Important: “Oxygen Builder” is a premium plugin for WordPress by Soflyy.
ℹ️ Disclaimer: Toolbar Extras for Oxygen Builder is an independent free plugin by David Decker from DECKERWEB. It does not represent Soflyy/ Oxygen.

♥️ Features – What the Plugin Does

  • More links for the “Back to WP” section in Oxygen Builder interface itself — Oxygen Templates, WordPress Pages, WooCommerce Products, Oxygen User Elements Library
  • Optionally open those “Back to WP” links in a new tab/ window — perfect for previewing your templates/ pages …
  • Useful Row action “Edit with Oxygen” for all Oxygen Template post types, plus any item of an Oxygen-enabled post type that contains an Oxygen Element already
  • Useful Post State “Oxygen” appended to all post type items edited with Oxygen – for example for Pages
  • Registers Oxygen Builder – set as default Builder for the “Build” Group
  • Adds Oxygen Templates links to the “Build” Group in the Toolbar, including Reusable Parts and User Elements Library (2.3+)
  • Optionally adds list of Oxygen Templates to the Toolbar as extra group
  • Optionally adds list of Oxygen-edited Pages to the Toolbar as extra group
  • Label tweaks and additions for Oxygen Templates in the “New Content” Group
  • Adds Website install wizard/ Importer to the Toolbar “Build” Group as well – for faster access

  • Adds links to settings of Oxygen Add-On Plugins (only if these are active)
  • Adds lots of official and Community resources to the Toolbar (optional, can be disabled via settings) – documentation, forum, Facebook Group etc.
  • Frontend only: The original Oxygen Toolbar item can be customized – icon, location, label
  • Add additional view to filter Oxygen Reusable Parts only – in Templates post type list table (overview table)
  • Proper highlighting of Templates submenu in Oxygen’s admin menu – so you always know where you are
  • Adds new tab on plugin’s settings page (under “Settings > Toolbar Extras > Tab: Oxygen”) so you have control over what is displayed and what’s not!
  • Corrected post type labels for Oxygen Templates (‘ct_template’) and User Elements Library (‘oxy_user_library’) where needed
  • Use any other “global” Toolbar Extras feature like automatic detection of Local Development Enviroment, Dev Mode, and lots of customization options

👍 More Benefits

🔌 Oxygen Add-On Support/ Integration

👉 A Typical Workflow / Usage
