Gravity Forms Toolbar

This small and lightweight plugin just adds a lot Gravity Forms related resources to your toolbar / admin bar. Also links to all admin settings pages pages of the plugin are included, making the life of form administrators/ developers a lot easier. So you might just switch from the fontend of your site to read current ‘Entries’ or just ‘Add a new Form’ etc. How cool is that? :) Also, support for all official and lots of third-party add-ons is included!

As the name suggests this plugin is primarily intended towards website admins/ developers. Beside the forum, support links etc. the main plugin settings links will only appear if the current user has the appropiate rights/ capabillities for these. This just goes hand in hand with the very same user rights Gravity Forms itself uses to display its menu entries. So also Editors or any user user with the proper rights could view ‘Entries’ etc (you could easily tweak all those roles & caps with the awesome “Members” plugin!).

NEW Features since v1.2+

  • Admin settings page to optinally remove Support/Docs/FAQ and/or “Active Extensions” sections from menu (settings under “General Settings”)
  • Admin settings allow also to dynamically add existing Forms (link to their edit pages) and Entries of these forms
  • Visual notification of new entries in the Toolbar (top level) and on “Entries” sub-level (if dynamic entries are activated)
