Admin Toolbar

What is Admin Toolbar module?

Admin Toolbar intends to improve the default Drupal Toolbar (the administration menu at the top of your site) to transform it into a drop-down menu, providing a fast access to all administration pages.

The module works on the top of the default toolbar core module and is therefore a very light module and keeps all the toolbar functionalities (shortcut / media responsive).

How to use Admin Toolbar module?

Just install it like any other module.

What else?

The module provides also a submodule called "Admin Toolbar Extra Tools" adding extra links like what does Admin Menu module for Drupal 7 (flush caches, run cron, etc...). You must install admin toolbar extra tools to benefit from lots of useful links in the toolbar menu.

The Admin links Access filter module that fixes the display of links user shouldn't have access to (see #296693: Hide empty admin categories) was included as submodule.

Starting with 8.x-1.21 Admin Toolbar has become compliant with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act most notably by making the module keyboard accessible and compliant with color contrasts for focus. For more information about this visit
