I know there’s people not liking the Admin Bar WordPress 3.1 – now rebranded as Toolbar in WordPress 3.3 – introduced, but I do. I think it’s a great tool to use and I have been using my own plugin adding a bunch of links to it. I decided I wanted to turn it into a proper plugin and the first derivative is the Genesis Toolbar+. This small plugin adds a couple of handy resources when using the Genesis Framework.

What does this plugin do?

This plugin adds an extra menu full of links about the StudioPress Genesis Framework to your Toolbar. The menus are translatable and the output of the menu is now filterable.
Now you can quickly navigate to any and all resource links on the StudioPress site from the comfort of your Genesis powered website.


Installation of this plugin works like any other plugin out there. Either:

1. Upload the zip file to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Or search for the plugin via your plugins menu.

    Thanks for the plugin. It rocks all my Genesis installations.
    I have one suggestion though; can you add the Simple Hooks settings to your plugin?
    It is on the same level as other Genesis Settings.
    Maybe the Genesis Slider can be added as well?
