Add another link to Network Admin

Description

There are problems accessing the link for Network Admin in the toolbar dropdown:

I would like to add another link to that screen in case the other issues are not both fixed. It could go on the My Sites screen and/or in the side admin menu.

Hi,

It would make sense to me to add a submenu under Dashboard.

By the way I don't think it would hurt if we add an additional link in the "My Sites" screen, too.

I agree completely that discovery for the Network Admin area is a legitimate problem.

My opinions, for what they are worth:

  • The submenu items under the Dashboard top-level menu should be reserved for things inside that site, not outside of it. The visual hierarchy is inwards/down, not outwards/up
  • Other admin screens also have links in the area that is suggested in "My Sites" and they feel a little bit floaty and random, and I don't like them in the other screens either

Any other ideas? 😅

The link doesn't fit very well above Dashboard, so the link is below the bottom separator instead in 53888.menu-bottom.patch.

I did not include a network submenu to avoid confusion with other links that have the same text (which refer to the individual site's Dashboard, Users, etc.).
