Hot Corners


Want a toolbar that stays out of the way? Hover to the corner of the page to get your admin links.
This plugin was made to enable users to get access to the admin area quickly without the default wordpress
toolbar. The four corners of the page are configurable via drag and drop settings page.

Please let me know if you have any issues with the plugin or you would like to see additions.


  • The corner editor in the backend of WordPress
  • What the corners look like on the font end


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/hot-corners directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the Settings->Hot Corners Name screen to configure the plugin

I’ve been fighting with a responsive site with a sticky nav bar which just wasn’t playing nice with the toolbar on mobile. I needed to have quick access to the back end so couldn’t just turn the toolbar off, so this is perfect! Also I like the fact that you can choose which users have this enabled, but I’d like to see (maybe for a future release?) setting the access by user roles instead. Only thing I’ll miss is the Yoast SEO stuff from the old toolbar. =)
