Overview

Publish Bar is a subtle and unobtrusive extension that adds a translucent "Publishing Bar" to the bottom of the ExpressionEngine entry editing screen and adds additional Publish buttons above the Publish Form's Tab Grouping (see screenshots).

As you scroll down the page, Publish Bar appears on the screen pinned to the bottom of the browser window.

Within Publish Bar is a 'Submit' button and a 'Back to Top' link, allowing you to conveniently submit changes or go to the top of the page witih ease. If autosave is enabled in ExpressionEngine, Publish Bar will display the autosave notification in style.

Hard-core keyboard users will appreciate the accesskey, "s", added to the Submit button -- saving even more time by keeping your fingers on the keyboard. For accesskey usage in your browser, see:
