A recent tweet by @andrea_r inspired me to post my relative bookmarks (bookmarklets rather) solution. If you manage a lot of websites in WordPress, you probably find yourself jumping around the administrative area a good bit and while the 2.8 admin redesign helped a lot in saving time, using these universal bookmarks takes it a step further.

It is quite simple. I created a folder in my Bookmarks Toolbar in Firefox and placed the bookmarks I use the most in it, as shown below:

wp-admin

The way to make this URL/blog independent is link to relative page, for example “Add New Post” points to post-new.php (which needs to point to www.andrejciho.com/wp-admin/post-new.php on this blog). The “relativeness” is done via javascript so the “Location” of the bookmark is:

javascript:window.location=’post-new.php’

So you can really roll your own bookmarks following the pattern above. The links in the

javascript:window.location=’post-new.php’
javascript:window.location=’edit.php’
javascript:window.location=’page-new.php’
javascript:window.location=’edit-pages.php’
javascript:window.location=’link-add.php’
javascript:window.location=’link-manager.php’
javascript:window.location=’plugins.php’

Note: These bookmarks only work once you are already logged in and within WordPress admin.
