Quick Navigation Interface provides a new way to navigate through the Administration Panels, combining the speed of keyboard shortcuts with the ease of a graphical user interface.

Just press g or ` -- the backtick character, usually located above the tab key -- to bring up the interface, and then start typing part of the name of any screen, post, page, etc. As you type, you'll be shown a list of matching links. Use the Up and Down keys to move between them, and press Enter to open one.

This was inspired by Ubuntu's Dash and HUD, and is also similar to the Spotlight feature in OS X.


If you just want to use the plugin, you can install the packaged version from the plugin repository.

If you want to develop the plugin, then follow these steps to setup the development version:

  • git clone
  • cd quick-navigation-interface
  • npm install
  • npm start

After the initial setup, you only need to run npm start. To build the distributed version, run npm run build.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
