WordPress Helper// It's the little things, little things, that make the world

The Firefox extension WordPress Helper helps you working with WordPress by providing useful help and tools. The extension eases the fast and simple access to develop-relevant pages of the WordPress Codex. So you always have all the necessary help at your fingertips. It's also possible to search after strings of text that is currently marked. Furthermore it's possible to easily switch to WordPress backend of current site. More than that, a small Icon indicates wether the currently displayed website makes use of WordPress.

'Editor's Choice' links are obtained from a remote source (the author's website), therefore are faster kept updated and available than the Codex links of this WordPress Helper extension. The links are maintained by the plugin author, new links can be suggested by any user though.

  1. Looks like a really great plugin ..but it would be nice if you could specficy exactly where the backend is located since I don’t use the paths you have indicated.

    • The paths are examples only, and just specify the document _level_ where your blog is installed, not the exact folder name.

  2. hi admin, I m using WordPress so far, According to my experiences, your great result mozilla “wordpress helper” addon, it had helped me, thank you for your efforts.

  3. Tolles Plugin! Ich benutze es quasi schon von Anfang an.
    Nur habe ich jetzt leider festgestellt, das es mit der neusten Firefox beta (4.0b11) Probleme gibt.
    Das automatische ausfüllen der Kommentarfelder funktioniert leider nicht. Das finde ich extrem schade, denn das ist meiner Meinung nach die beste Funktion. ^_~
    Ich hoffe, das das Problem behoben werden kann.

    • Hey Nici,

      habe gerade eine neue Version an Mozilla übermittelt, die diesen Bug behebt. 🙂 Sollte nur ein paar Tage dauern, bis Mozilla das Update freischaltet.

      Danke für den Hinweis!

  4. WordPress bietet 5 User Rollen an. Usermanagement beginnt beim Verständnis der 5 Userberechtigungen /user-roles die WP mitbringt. Hier die Grundlagen. Was kann und darf ein Mitarbeiter, Abonnent, Autor, Redakteur oder Administrator. Ergänzung mit INFO-Grafik und .pdf zum Download.
