Blog Switcher

One of the things that has been a long-standing pain here is that if you run more than one blog on it’s pretty difficult to switch between the dashboards.

It’s actually easier to leave your dashboard and go to your blog’s home page, so you can use the admin bar to move between dashboards. Countless mouse clicks have been wasted doing so.

Look at the arrow!

No longer! Now if you have more than one blog you can hover over the title of your blog in your dashboard and it’ll show you a drop down with all your other blogs. Clicking on one will take you to the same page in the other dashboard, with one click! Mice around the world will breathe a sigh of relief.

When you hover over it

Just a note: It only shows up if you have more than one blog, or if you’re on the global dashboard.

    WP rocks!

  39. JV

    What a wonderful update!!

  52. amiripz

    Ah, if it only happened a month ago.
    I had two blogs and then I had to delete one and start from a differet email addres (user name) because the dashbord mixes.

    Never mind my case, a superd addition Matt.

  53. Alexandre

    Merci !

  54. Karura

    My second blog has always been a bit neglected because switching to it was just a little bit too much effort…but now there’s no excuse not to check it :)

  60. James17930

  64. adam

    very awesome, i’ve needed that for a while.

  65. masterclasslady

    Merci buckets!

  66. kylydia

    Oh, this is lovely and very much appreciated. It was my biggest pet peeve with WordPress!

  67. KarenV

    I’ve just noticed this – thanks very much, it was a bit of a pain before!

  68. benny75

    Hey Matt, I´ve missed this feature… just until today! In my case, it was very good for switching all my blogs … before, I´ve had to go to wordpress home page or visualize a blog to switch ..
    Thank you!

    Saluti Celesti

  69. NAyK

    This is it! And sooner than expected! It’s what I (we all) wanted. Thanks so much. I guess now the only issue remains is the interface… to make it look more ‘pretty’. Right now the drop down is a little obtrusive and overshadows a bit of the screen space. Maybe with a little more design it will not only be useful but more aesthetically pleasing.

  70. Phoenix

    Cool I was looking for this all the time… you’re the god of small things! :)

  71. thesinger

    it’s a wonderful thing!!

  72. Burner

    Great job, Matt. Thanks! No more bitching when switching blogs now. :D

  73. ivoryhut

    You guys are awesome. I always look forward to checking out the dashboard every time I log on. It’s like checking to see if there are new little surprise gifts left for us while we were away.

    Thank you so much for all your hard work. WordPress rocks!

    I agree with JV’s comment above about hoping for multiple author IDs to go along with the separate blogs. (For us mulitple personality type of people!)

  93. Brian Purkiss

    I posted a comment earlier telling you that I couldn’t use that feature with Safari.
    Well, I’ve got it now! It’s working! I don’t know why it wasn’t working earlier, but it’s working now.

    So, now I can give a report!

    It’s AWESOME.
    Thank you so much for that update. I’m using it a bunch already. It’s very useful.
