Have Quicker Access to Your WooCommerce Shop Resources – Time Saver!

This small and lightweight plugin just adds a lot WooCommerce related resources to your WordPress Toolbar / Admin Bar.

Also links to all setting/ tab pages of the plugin are added making life for shop administrators/ webmasters a lot easier. So you might just switch from the frontend of your site to ‘Payment Settings’ page or check recent ‘Orders’ etc.

General Features

  • The plugin is primarily intended towards shop managers, site admins and webmasters.
  • All WooCommerce shop settings, products and orders management as well as extensions are hooked in!
  • Supporting all official and most third-party plugins with own settings pages!
  • Access WooCommerce resources from your dashboard with one click – or just search the documentation.
  • 4 action hooks included for hooking custom menu items in — for all main sections plus the resource group section (see Other Notes section here for more info on that).
  • 7 additional icon colors included :) (changeable via filters)
  • Plus 7 filters included to change wording/tooltip and icon of the main item – for more info see Other Notes 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 Other Notes section here
  • Fully internationalized! Real-life tested and developed with international users in mind!
  • Fully WPML compatible!
  • Fully Multisite compatible, you can also network-enable it if ever needed (per site use is recommended).
  • Developed, tested and fully maintained since the WooCommerce 1.2.x branch up to now! Plugin also supported by WooCommerce main developer!
  • As of this plugin version 2.7.0 or higher: Only WooCommerce v2.1.0 or higher, and legacy branch 2.0.x are supported! So please update your installs!
  • Tested with WordPress branch 3.8 also in debug mode (no stuff there, ok? :) (Note: Plugin should also run with WP 3.6+ but please always update to latest version, ok?!)

Special Features

  • Not only supporting official WooCommerce sites ALSO third-party and user links – so just the whole WooCommerce ecosystem :)
  • Link to German language/translation plugin – only displayed when German locales are active (de_DE, de_AT, de_CH, de_LU, gsw)
  • Link to downloadable German language packs – only displayed when German locales are active (de_DE, de_AT, de_CH, de_LU, gsw)

  • Link to Spanish language/translation plugin – only displayed when Spanish locales are active (es_ES or es_PE)
  • Link to Czech language/translation plugin – only displayed when Czech locale is active (cs_CZ)
  • NOTE: I would be happy to add more language/locale specific resources and more useful third-party links – just contact me!

Requiremets

  • Technically speaking this plugin runs also without WooCommerce 2.x being active
  • BUT: it really makes no sense to use it without WooCommerce 2.x!
  • WordPress 3.6 or higher, but latest version always recommended!

As the name suggests this plugin is intended towards admins/ webmasters/ shop managers. The new admin bar entries will only be displayed if the current user has the WooCommerce capability of manage_woocommerce (a.k.a. user role “Shop Manager”). (Note: I am open for suggestions here if the default value should maybe changed to a more suitable capability. However, you can now tweak this also yourself using our new filter :)

Currently supporting: 27 official premium extensions // 15 free third-party extensions // 13 third-party premium themes/frameworks // 1 free third-party theme // plus all official free/premium WooCommerce themes by WooThemes!

Installation

Installation Steps

  1. Installing alternatives:
    • via Admin Dashboard: Go to ‘Plugins > Add New’, search for “WooCommerce Admin Bar Addition”, click “install”
    • OR via direct ZIP upload: Upload the ZIP package via ‘Plugins > Add New > Upload’ in your WP Admin
    • OR via FTP upload: Upload woocommerce-admin-bar-addition folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Look at your toolbar / admin bar and enjoy using the new links there :)
  4. Go and manage your shop – good luck with sales :)

Requirements

  • Technically speaking this plugin runs also without WooCommerce 2.x being active
  • BUT: it really makes no sense to use it without WooCommerce 2.x!
  • WordPress 3.6 or higher, but latest version always recommended!
  • WooCommerce branch compat: As of this plugin version 2.7.0 or higher: Only WooCommerce v2.1.0 or higher, and legacy branch 2.0.x are supported! So please update your installs!

Note: This plugin has NO settings page because I believe it’s just not neccessarry. All customizing could be done via action hooks, filters, constants and regular WordPress user roles & capabilities (see “Other Notes” section here). As the plugin is indended for a shop manager/ admin/ webmaster use that’s the way to go. This way we can save the overhaul of an options panel/settings page, additional database requests, uninstall routines and such. End result: a lightweight system that just works and saves clicks & time :-).

Multisite install: Yes, it’s fully compatible but have a look in the FAQ section here for more info :)

Own translation/wording: For custom and update-secure language files please upload them to /wp-content/languages/wcaba/ (just create this folder) – This enables you to use fully custom translations that won’t be overridden on plugin updates. Also, complete custom English wording is possible with that, just use a language file like wcaba-en_US.mo/.po to achieve that (for creating one see the tools on “Other Notes”).

· Minimum WordPress version required: 3.6 plus WooCommerce 2.x
· Tested up to WordPress version: 3.8.16

FAQ

Q. How are new resources being added to the admin bar?
A. Just drop me a note on my Twitter @deckerweb or via my contact page and I’ll add the link if it is useful for admins/ webmasters and the WooCommerce community.

Q. How could my plugin/extension or theme options page be added to the admin bar links?
A. This is possible of course and highly welcomed! Just drop me a note on my Twitter @deckerweb or via my contact page and we sort out the details!

Particularly, I need the admin url for the primary options page (like so wp-admin/admin.php?page=foo) – this is relevant for both, plugins and themes. For themes then I also need the correct name defined in the stylesheet (like so Footheme).

Q. There are still some other plugins/ extensions/ add-ons for WooCommerce out there why aren’t these included by default?
A. Simple answer: The settings of these add-ons are added directly to the various WooCommerce settings pages or tabs and have no anchor to link to. So linking/ adding is just impossible.

Q. How can I customize & brand the admin bar / toolbar items?
A. All this could be done via our filters and constants. Really lightweight and simple. Just step up the “Other Notes” area here and scroll down to the proper section.

Q. Is this plugin Multisite compatible?
A. Yes, it is! :) Works really fine in Multisite invironment – here I just recommend to activate on a per site basis so to load things only where and when needed.

Q. In Multisite, could I “network enable” this plugin?
A. Yes, you could. — However, it doesn’t make much sense. The plugin is intented for a per site use as the admin links refer to the special settings, plugin-support and theme-support for that certain site/blog. So if you have a Multisite install with 5 sites but only 3 would run “WooCommerce” then the other 2 sites will only see support links in the Toolbar / Admin Bar… I guess, you got it? :)

Though intended for a per site use it could make some sense in such an edge case: if all of the sites in Multisite use WooCommerce and have lots of WooCommerce-specific plugins in common and use the same theme/framework. This might be the case if you use Multisite for multilingual projects, especially via that awesome plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/multilingual-press/

Q. Why is there no admin settings page to this plugin?
A. This plugin has NO settings page because I believe it’s just not neccessarry. All customizing could be done via CSS styling, filters, constants and regular WordPress user roles & capabilities. As the plugin is indended for a shop manager/ admin/ webmaster use that’s the way to go. This way we can save the overhaul of an options panel/ settings page, additional database storing & requests, uninstall routines and such. End result: a lightweight system that just works and saves clicks & time :-).

  • NEW: Added full WooCommerce 2.1.0 compatibility — by keeping backwards compat for former 2.0.x branch (that will be for a certain time, not always!).

    • NEW: Added support for “Kiosk” and “Gigawatt eCommerce” (both premium, by Obox Design)

2.2.0 (2012-03-23)

  • Woot, major updates on almost all fronts! :)
  • New features:
    • COOL: Plugin can now be branded and customized a lot more!
    • NEW: Added 7 filters to change icon graphic, main item name, main capability and more! For these cases there are now the new built-in filters and helper functions available! (See “Other Notes” here)
    • NEW: Plugin now goes hand in hand with the official “WooCommerce Branding” extension (only if that one is activated, of course) — using custom name, icon and color scheme together! (See “Other Notes” here)
    • NEW: Almost all sections can now be removed for special needs, capabilities etc. — all done via constants in your active theme/child theme — this way you can customize for your staff members if you need some more users with extended or restricted admin bar/toolbar access (See “Other Notes” here)
    • NEW: Via add_theme_support you can now add all WooCommerce order status with counters to the “Orders” item — I decided to make it optional because getting the counts will need a database call, so not every admin will want this! (See “Other Notes” here)
    • NEW: Via add_theme_support you can now add all frontend shop links (all special shop, cart etc. pages) to the main level “Orders” — not every shop manager needs that so I decided to make it optional (See “Other Notes” here)
    • NEW: Added search form for official “WooComerce Docs” site directly to the main level (in Resources section) – note: search results will open in new window/tab!
  • More updates, additions and improvements:
    • NEW: Added new “Tutorials” and “Community Videos” links to “Docs” item.
    • UPDATE: Added proper capability checks to all plugin and theme menu items – the links are now following the same capabilities like in the original plugins/themes. So, if a user don’t sees any left-hand admin menu items the same user won’t see anything of this in the toolbar!
    • UPDATE: Added an interim patch to get somewhat locale-independent reports admin urls – now for ALL locales – getting the slug strings directly from the language files of WooCommerce itself — Therefore the 3 strings (“sales”, “customers”, “stock”) should NOT be translated in my plugin language files! — Waiting for “WooCommerce” to switch to IDs for the tabs slugs…

    • UPDATE: Updated readme.txt file with new and updated documentation/instructions etc.
    • UPDATE: Updated some of the screenshots (more might follow soon…)
