[RFC] Add ACP link to the top of the index

Post by bonelifer » Thu Oct 24, 2013 9:28 pm

Since page refreshes now are using ajax it would be nice to have the ACP link at the top by [ Moderator Control Panel ] in prosilver. Previously you had time to click on the ACP link on the intermediary page to get the ACP login page. I often find myself as a moderator logging in to the forum and immediately logging into the ACP so that I can use the ADMINISTE USERS function right away when banning users. Now that there isn't an intermediary page, I have to scroll all the way down. Having the link at the top of the page would help users who use this workflow.

I'm fine with this, as long as we keep the current link in the bottom as well. IMO to be nitpicky, I'd want the ACP link to come before the MCP one, but that's no big deal.

EDIT: Note that if https://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopi ... 08&t=44827 is merged (or something like it) we should consider the pros/cons of putting the MCP/ACP links in the dropdown.

Agree, it would be good to have it in User dropdown menu

+1 to this but someone needs to explain what the intermediary page is...

When you login to phpBB 3.0.x you get this page:

which means you have time to click on the ACP link before it refreshes to the index and you then have to scroll down.

The idea was to make it quicker to get to, hiding it in a menu would mean hovering(ie extra steps).
