Former Genesis Toolbar Extras – abandoned –> Migrate to: Toolbar Extras


The old “Genesis Toolbar Extras” is NOW: Toolbar Extras — more general Toolbar Admin Bar plugin for WordPress
The old one is abandoned, the new one is better than ever – and executes my original vision in the way I always wanted it, yeah!

The New Plugin Has These Benefits:

  • Full Genesis Framework support out of the box
  • Integration with dozens of Genesis Child Themes, including from StudioPress, Mai Themes, SEO Themes, and Genesis Customizer
  • Integration with Genesis plugin ecosystem – lofts of plugins from third-party vendors, community and StudioPress
  • Up-to-date technology
  • Updated for 2019
  • Settings page – finally!
  • Way better user experience!
  • For Site Builders, Non-Coder Designers and Non-Techies!


If you do want to migrate to “Toolbar Extras” (the new one) you can do so and dismiss the admin notification.
BUT: There WILL NOT be any updates to this old plugin here – use at your own risk.

The recommended way is to migrate to the new plugin, as it has only benefits and advantages over the old one.

Thanks in advance!

Why was the original plugin abandoned?

It was a good plugin and it was a great time 7 years ago, in 2012.
However, its focus was too small, only on Genesis and not on the whole site-building picture with WordPress and non-Genesis specific plugins.

Toolbar Extras has a more general name, yes, but it is even more supportive of Genesis than its predecessor.

And, Toolbar Extras has another plus: overwhelming support for page builders and more general plugins for site builders. This makes the whole user experience much superior!

Is Genesis really be supported?

Yeah, absolutely!
I went the extra mile to make sure Toolbar Extras works perfectly fine with latest Genesis!

Genesis and its ecosystem of Child Themes and plugins has changed a lot over the last seven years, and the new plugin “Toolbar Extras” reflects that in supporting all the latest stuff.

  • Updated resource URLs
  • Supporting the most popular Child Themes
  • Supporting the most popular Genesis-specific plugins, including Genesis Design Palette Pro
  • And also supported are my own Genesis plugins like Genesis Layout Extras, of course 😉
