WeblogsActionMenu is a plugin that modifies the interface of Movable Type.
The dropdown menu of available weblogs in the header of every Movable Type screen is a handy way to jump from one weblog to another. What's not so handy is that you have to first go through the other weblog's menu in order to do anything with that weblog. WeblogsActionMenu lets you jump directly to a specific action for a different weblog than the one you're in.
This version of WeblogsActionMenu requires Movable Type 3.3.
To install the WeblogsActionMenu plugin, upload the file
WeblogsActionMenu.pl to the
plugins directory within your Movable Type directory. If
BigPAPI.pl is not already present in your
plugins directory, upload that as well.
WeblogsActionMenu is available free of charge under a Creative Commons license.
Please use the support forums for all support requests, bug reports, feature requests, questions, and comments regarding this plugin.

When WeblogsActionMenu is installed and you view any page of the MT interface, to the left of the standard menu of weblogs in the header, you'll see a second dropdown menu with an item called
Menu selected. This menu contains 21 weblog-specific actions.
If you want to navigate to a different weblog and go somewhere other than that weblog's Menu page, choose a different action from the actions menu. Then choose the desired weblog from the menu of weblogs.
Note that WeblogsActionMenu doesn't take permissions into account when building the menu, so you may see a Movable Type error message if you choose an action you're not permitted to perform for a given weblog.
