Admin Bar Everywhere

We are happy you liked our new admin bar design, but we are even happier to make it better.

Here are two little improvements, based on your feedback:

The admin bar is visible in your admin panel, too.

The admin bar used to show only on blog pages. Not any more.

There is a link to your Stats page in the admin bar.

The link in My Account takes you to to the Stats page on your Global Dashboard, where you have access to the pageviews and other stats of all your blogs.

It’s little things that make us smile.

    cool.

    unfortunately the latest dashboard tweaks mean that it no longer works in older versions of Safari… the browser crashes instantly.

    but good to know you guys listen to feedback.

    I think it is a redundancy as we already have all the option Tabs in our dashboard, but… well… some time this redundancy seems very useful. Suppose from the DESIGN option now I can directly go to the STATS option! Well another good addition. Thanx WP team.

    Don’t you have any plan to allow the java scripts in wordpress.com? Is there any new gorgeous theme is coming for wordpress.com?

    At first glance this appears almost useless.

    The global stats page not really valuable to us. First, if you have more than one blog – what do you see on the global stats page? For us, it isn’t the stats of the blog we want.

    Second, to get what you want – Stats – you have to click numerous times – what’s the point? Where’s the value?

    For those who want blog stats, ie, how many hits today – why not just add a widget to the admin bar that displays the # of hits 24/7? No clicks, always available and when you click on the # it then takes you to the full stats page. Get there and you’ll have created time savings & value. Yes your total internal page hits will go down but who cares – your customer sat will go way up.
