Adds useful admin links and resources for the Connections Business Directory plugin to the WordPress Toolbar / Admin Bar.

== Description ==

This is an extension plugin for the [Connections Business Directory Plugin]( Quick click access without having to scroll to all of Connections admin pages from either the admin or the front end for easy management. You can even go to a specific settings tab of filter the entry list with a single click making you life easier.

Why not just include this with the plugin as an option? Two reasons, the admin bar has limited space and to limit the amount of core plugin options and code.

* [Contact]( :: Displays a contact form on the entry's profile page to allow your visitors to contact the entry without revealing their email address.
* [CSV Import]( :: Bulk import your data in to your directory.
* [Custom Category Order]( :: Order your categories exactly as you need them.
* [Form]( :: Allow site visitor to submit entries to your directory. Also provides frontend editing support.
* [Link]( :: Links a WordPress user to an entry so that user can maintain their entry with or without moderation.
