Image from store WordPress Admin Switcher
Description from store This extension is great for power users who want to skip the manual steps of always having to type "wp-admin" into the address bar to log in to WordPress sites, or always having to reach for their mouse/trackpad and click a link in the WP admin bar in order to switch to/from the admin; those processes are replaced with a single keyboard shortcut instead. HOW TO USE: On any WordPress site, hit cmd + shift + A (Mac) or ctrl + shift + A (Windows/Linux) to log into or switch to/from the WordPress Admin. EXAMPLES: 1. You're not yet logged in to a WordPress site. Hitting the shortcut will direct you to the WordPress admin login screen. After logging in you will be directed to the admin post edit screen for the post/page/custom post type you were viewing before you logged in, if possible, or else the main admin screen. 2. You're logged in and are on the front end of a WordPress site. Hitting the shortcut will direct you to the Admin post edit screen for the post/page/custom post type you were viewing, or else the main Admin screen. 3. You're logged in and are in the WordPress Admin. Hitting the shortcut will direct you to the page on the front end for the post/page/custom post type you were editing, or else the main site URL. FAQ: "Can I change the keyboard shortcut from cmd/ctrl + shift + A to something else?" Yes. Type chrome://extensions/shortcuts into the Chrome address bar and hit enter. Find WordPress Admin Switcher on the list of extensions. Enter your desired keyboard shortcut into the "Switch to/from admin" field. "If I'm logged in to a site, WordPress provides links in the admin bar at the top that can be used to jump back & forth between the Admin and front end. How is this any different?" It's about efficiency and productivity. The more you can leave your hands on the keyboard without reaching for the mouse/trackpad, the faster you'll be. Not to mention that if you're not yet logged in to a WordPress site, the Admin bar links aren't there for you to click on so you'll end up manually highlighting and deleting part of the URL and typing in "wp-admin <enter>" every time. The number of steps saved is illustrated below. Logging into a site WITHOUT the extension: - Move your hand to your mouse/trackpad. - Move the cursor up to the omnibar/address bar. - Click and highlight everything to the right of the domain. - Type 'wp-admin' followed by the enter key. Logging into a site WITH the extension: - Hit cmd/ctrl + shift + A Switching between front end/admin WITHOUT the extension: - Move your hand to your mouse/trackpad. - Move the cursor up the WordPress Admin bar. - Click one of the links to go to/from the Admin. Switching between front end/admin WITH the extension: - Hit cmd/ctrl + shift + A

  • (2020-05-15, v:1.0.4) Dean Loh: Option for setting custom login URL
    Hi, I have iThemes Security running on all my sites and I renamed login URL for some site for added security. This extension seems to default to wp-admin at the moment. Is there anyway I can add in my custom login URL?

  • (2016-07-01, v:1.0.1) Katarzyna Janoska (anoriell): Does not work for WP installed in a folder
    Hi! A very nice extension! It just does not work if I have a WP installer in a folder. So if I have WP installed e.g. like this: http://example.com/wordpress ctrl+shift+a gets me to: http://example.com/wp-admin and not to: http://example.com/wordpress/wp-admin Do you plan to fix that any time soon?
