Provides a text field in the WP Admin allowing you to jump to common WP Actions.
Streamline the way you use the WordPress Admin
WP Butler adds a simple text field to your WordPress Admin, that puts everything at your fingertips. Simply start typing the action you wish to perform, and it will show you all the possible options. You're always a single click away.
You can now even search your posts from WP Butler. Just type 'search', followed by a keyword from one of your posts, then select the post you were after.
WP Butler now supports internationalisation. Most of this is provided by WordPress itself, however the few parts exclusive to WP Butler that need translating could use some help. If you can translate WP Butler to a language other than English, please get in touch!
- Upload the 'wp-butler' folder to the '/wp-content/plugins/' directory
- Activate the WP Butler plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
shift+alt+bor click on
WP Butlerin the Admin Bar on any admin page to launch WP Butler.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are the translations a little hinky?
Unfortunately, I don't speak / write any languages besides English well enough to translate, so I used Google Translate to get things started. Hopefully others are willing to contribute further translations, and corrections for the ones Google Translate didn't quite get right.
If you want to contribute a translation, please get in touch with me: https://github.com/Japh/wp-butler/issues?state=open
