Description

This would remove a click and I think a lot of people would enjoy the addition. I know I go to the plugins page more than users or sites combined.

Oh, yes. This would be very useful.

To be consistent a link for themes should be added then too. Or just use Snack Bar.

Themes aren’t changed as often as plugins. I’m fine with both, but I need the plugin link. :)

#8 @Ipstenu

Giving it one more option, what about adding themes and plugins, btu removing "Visit Network"? That just sends people to the main site, which is great for a network like WPCOM, but less useful when you're housing lots of un-related sites (which is the growing usage I've seen).

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.7

Moving to 3.7 for discussion.

Latest patch from Ipstenu adds 'Themes' and 'Plugins' to the network admin section and removes 'Visit Network'.

+1 from me, Visit Network always drives me crazy.

In 25120:

props Ipstenu, SergeyBiryukov.
fixes #21674.

How about a link to Settings too? That would cover each of the top level menu items in Network Admin then.

I would argue this isn't needed. While it might be nice parallelism, pretty much everything on wp-admin/network/settings.php is set-it-and-forget-it, not a page you need to go to often for management and administration (which you do with users, sites, themes, and plugins).

A single site's snack menu only contains items under Appearance, also omitting Settings.

Is this still being added to core? I don't see it in the latest 3.8 trunk.

The "Plugins" and "Themes" links were added three months ago in [25120], if that's what you're referring to:

Thanks for clarifying. Talk about see what you want to see! I actually read the title as something different. Was looking for a ticket on adding 'Plugins' link to the front end WordPress toolbar.
