Managing a Network takes a lot of navigating around the network and main site admin panels. A huge portion of this time is wasted by searching for the right menu to click when trying to reach a certain page, or navigating the many levels of the links on the admin top-bar.
WP Ultimo Jumper aims to fix that issue and give all that wasted time back to you.
Ok, but what is the WP Ultimo Jumper?
The Jumper is a new, simpler UI to navigate between WordPress Admin Pages. It offers an interface similar to Spotlight on MacOS, for those familiar with it.
It can be triggered by using ctrl + alt + g (cmd + option + g on a Mac), and it looks like this.
It follows 2 simple rules:
- If the URL is local to your network (meaning, is a URL inside the admin panel of your network), it redirects you to that URL;
- If the URL is an external URL – And you can your own custom URLs – (e.g. a link to your WPEngine Dashboard, for example), it opens the URL in a new browser tab.
Customizing the Jumper
You can extend the Jumper adding your own custom links and change the trigger key on WP Ultimo Settings > Tools;
Changing the trigger key
On the Jumper settings, set the Trigger Key option to your desired trigger key. The new keyboard shortcut will be ctrl + alt + your chosen key (cmd + option + your chosen key on a Mac),
Adding Custom Links
Adding custom links is as simple as it can get. Simply add a new line onto the Custom Links settings, following the format Your Link Title : http://yourcustomlinkurl.com*.
