Admin Helper – WordPress Plugin (essential tool for theme developers)

on September 18, 2011
(1 minute read)

Admin Helper is a tiny WordPress Plugin that will provide you useful information such as the ID of the current page, the type of page you are viewing (post, page, category, tag, tax, author, archive, 404, search…), the template used by the page, the order of the page and links to edit the page, the Administration Panel and logout.

The plugin is extremely lightweight and is an essential tool for WordPress theme developers.

Admin Helper is hidden and does not show unless you are logged in. Once logged in it appears unobtrusively like this:

So it is not as annoying as the default Admin Bar that comes with WordPress yet it provides everything you need while developing the WordPress theme in a mouse move or click.

Login square: While you are not connected, a 5×5 invisible square at the bottom right of the page will link you to the Login page.
