A couple of days ago I wrote a tutorial on how to display content for only the admin to see. I kept thinking a bit more about what else I could do with this WordPress trick and I ended up creating the WP Easy Admin plugin. I’m no PHP guru, and I’ve never made a WordPress plugin before, so go easy on me!
WP Easy Admin is a WordPress plugin that creates a navigation bar at the top of your site, with quick access links to the default WordPress admin panel options pages (Dashboard, Write, Manage, etc.). The navigation bar is only visible to administrators who are logged in.

Towards the end of the development stage for this plugin, I wanted some feedback so I had a few buds test it out. I was told by one of them that there’s a plugin like this that already exists! I was pretty disappointed but I’ve decided to release it just for the hell of it. Enjoy!
