Admin Bar Menu Packer

Description

Some of themes or plugins add menu items to the toolbar (admin bar). These additional items may be useful, but sometimes you feel annoyed as the toolbar fills up with various items. Admin Bar Menu Packer gathers these items on the toolbar into one hamburger menu. The message “Howdy, username” next to the Avatar is also removed, but most WordPress built-in items remain as they are.

Debug Mode

If WP_DEBUG is enabled, this plugin will run in debug mode.
In debug mode, you can see:

  • [Node ID popup] Each item in the hamburger menu has title attribute contains node ID
  • [Debug menu] Additional item (‘All Nodes’) which contains node IDs of all items on the toolbar

Translations

This plugin is currently available in English and Japanese (日本語).
