<?php if (current_user_can("manage_options")) : ?> <a href="<?php echo bloginfo("siteurl") ?>/wp-admin/">Admin</a> <?php endif; ?>
If a user is logged in and they are an Admin of the site (not just an subscriber or author), then display a link to get them to the WordPress Admin area. Otherwise, display nothing.
More specific than the regular log in / log out function, which will show for everyone:
<?php wp_loginout(); ?>
really handy piece of code.
I think the following (within the loop) does the same thing and lets you go directly to the post or page you want to edit:
<?php edit_post_link(‘Edit’, ”, ”); ?>
Really handy! So, why not combine both scripts and have “Login” and “Edit” for Admins only?
For example, inside the loop:
Really a handy code but some more descriptions would have really made me appreciate you more
i get the code but not that good with php so want to know where exactly do i insert the code, header, footer or the body. though i guess header since it deals with login/logout. and what specific purpose those this serve on a site
You insert that into your theme functions.
You better do not insert this in your theme functions.
But do insert this code in any of the theme Templates:
single.php, page.php, archive.php.
It makes no sense to put it in functions.php since it is not logic function, rather representational function that needs to popup somewhere.
You could, though, theoretically put it in functions.php, via filter function that defines when to present Admin link on any of the templates mentioned above :)
