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.

  5. Moon

    O.K. :)

  6. Manny Z

    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.

  7. Ricky

    Awesome!

  8. m@q

    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?

  9. Aafke

    :D Stats page is one of my favorites! :D

  18. museditions

    Re: #1, Thank you! That does make things easier. We do like to be plugged in all the time. #2, I didn’t see that in the menu until you pointed it out. For the gazillion of us obsessed with stats, you have fed our semi-addictions. ;) Nice!

  19. Chittaranjan

  23. M. C.

    Thanks a lot!!
    And easy acces to the stats is an improvements many of us will salute! :)

  24. wellgoncho

    It’d be cool to have a sort of admin bar (only smaller) as a browser plug in.

  25. Sakib

    Nikolay, thanks for the updates ;-)

  26. jewaira

    WordPress just keeps getting better and better

  29. Brad Beaman

    This is cool, maybe I will finally check my stats now.

  30. Zack Katz

    Great! I’ve been wanting to access my stats from the bar for a long time, and I know that was one of the major feedback items you received.

    Thanks for such quick improvements!

  38. Niki

    Been waiting for the bar-anywhere feature, thanks!

  39. the rufus

    This saves my day – I need these 1-click stats :lol:

  40. Darko

    Admin bar is about 2 pixels smaller in height, than it’s background — I can even click on “Dashboard” link beneath it. Hope you’ll fix it… or I’ll just Stylish-it ;)

    (Firefox 2.0.0.14, XP SP2)

    p.s. thanks for the Stats link in the bar!

  41. Vashti

    Hurray! Good work guys.

  42. Will Rhodes

    Cool! I wanted the stats there! :)

    I love that I can check my stats direct from my actual home page!

    Thanks

  52. Arun Shanbhag

    Heh! Nice update with the Stats on the Admin Bar!

    Why are you making us get our stats fix so easily?
    :-))

  53. Doriard

    Great… well, I’ve never cared a lot for the Admin Bar but now I find it useful-desu :P
    (Dun care ’bout my otaku-based words, but I can’t avoid ‘em)

    >.> Stats rulz! *3*

    I always start my day watching my stats, but I always get depressed as soon as i get to see em T_T

    Well, now the process anxiety -> Depression, will come quicker…

    Thanks for working on that and making our blogging days easier nyo n.n

    Arigato Gozaimazu! n.n

  54. udom

    Good job ;-)

  55. Kyle

    So now I’ve got another bar which doubles up on links I have on my dashboard?

    It’s not better at all! I can do most of the stuff on that bar from clicking a link on my dashboard, and it just makes annoying clutter. Anywhere else but the dash would be good

  56. raincoaster

    Oooh, more juice for stats addicts! This takes me to my happy place.

  57. jellopenguin

    Pretty cool! A lot more convenient. :D

  58. missesparker

    i definitely love the stats link..nice improvement

  59. erander

    Cool :cool:

  60. Prasanna Pandit

    You guys can read minds! I was just thinking yesterday how great it would be to have stats on the admin bar!!

  61. intlxpatr

    I totally love it. Makes getting around so easy!

  62. tasithoughts

    Thanks for the notes on the new features

  63. Бу

    I saw the new admin bar yesterday, if I’m not mistaken. Found it very useful, thank you.

  64. Kunal

    little things do help….

    it would be great if you add another functionality – to toggle the visibility of the admin bar…

  65. akhdian

    Good Idea. i’ts Great!

  66. Nita

    This is useful. Thanks.

  67. zeynepankara

    Thanks for the info. What a handsome guy you are Nikolay, lol.

  68. Dhimas L N ---- (^-^)v

    yup,, little thing but this useful.

  69. webmastah

    I Like it!

  70. Rob Rockitt

    Very Cool! Thank You!!

  71. artofmulata

    finally a quick way to get to stats! thank you.

    never could figure out why all the admin were separated from one another;
    this goes a long way to making this app so much better.

    looking forward to everything else you folks have up your sleeves.
    how about rolling some cool wp.org plugins into the mix?

    pol

  72. deftoned

    Sweet. Thank you for this!

  73. Little old me

    Thanks, that is a big help.

  74. LeeDee

    You are doing a great job, here !
    I’m a begginer blogger and I’m fascinated how easily worked out the registration of my own blog !
    Thank you and Good luck !

  75. Oma Els

    That’s really cool, keep up the good work!

  76. Sagaro

    Whoa! when the first admin bar came long back, I had requested for the stats page to be included in the bar… and finally it is here. Save a lot of time for people like me, who visit stats page more often than the number of visitors to the blog :P

  77. qmutz

    An interesting tool for navigation … and thanks … ;)

  78. Mr.Rockmantico

    good widgets :_D bye live of rock & roll ^^

  79. sulaaquila

    Great, great, great idea! And very helpful too.

    Thanks so much.

    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.

  81. Zeezat

    Wow… Link for the stats page in admin bar is very useful. I can access my stats anywhere no matter what wordpress.com blog am reading. Its a nice feature. I like it very much.

    WordPress is the best in every way, that’s for sure. Keep growing…

    Best smile,
    Zeezat

  82. *~{š†ΣLLªr}~*

    WOW, thanks for those adds. They are awesome. This is just getting better and better. ;)

  83. W.H. Winegarden

    Fantastic, glad to see you are listening to us…

    Now if you could just add some social networking widgets to allow people to book mark our entries we would really be cooking!

  84. O-S

    cool …

  85. Mick

    I love how we request the little stuff and it happens.
    You guys ROCK!

    Thanks heaps for this…

  86. Wespa
