I’ll enter info here as questions come in.

What the ALP plugin does

ALP is basically a widget to provide edit links (“edit this page”, “edit this post”, and other admin links according to the selected options, when an admin user is logged in. When not logged in you’re presented with a login form which logs you in and bounces you back to the current page.

Installing and setting options

You install it by unzipping the download file into a plugins directory or subdirectory.

Then in the admin area of yoru site you go to “plugins” and activate the ALP plugin.

Finally you go to Appearance > Widgets and add ALP to one of your widget areas. Finally you need to “edit” the widget to enable the different links (such as “edit this post”) which will then appear in the widget area when you’re visiting your site.

The login form only shows for logged-out users if the “loginout” option is checked.
