Purpose

This mod servers 2 purposes

  • Adds a link to the admin users getperson page.
  • Adds a link to the "What's New" page.

Introduction

I like to double-check media items when I upload them and connect them to individuals. I've made spelling errors and typos in the past, only to find it a bit of a chore to leave the admin screen and check whether the item I have just added is correct. Now, I can add a media item and click on the What's New link and go and view it to ensure it (or they) are installed and attached to the right people. With the "My Page" link (based on an original idea by Ulli Heist), I can quickly go to my own page in TNG. This will work with any Admin user as long as they have a 'getperson' page.

Visualisation

This is how the additional menu items look.(Customised template 12 on TNG v10.1.0)
