Daily Tip: Use the Customized Startbar module

Tired of switching between the Master and Core database during development? Making the mistake of making changes on the wrong database? Install the Customized Startbar Module.

This module will do multiple things, but the main two things that I really like are:

  • You can add buttons to the Quicklaunch bar.
  • Add the database name next to the database icon (bottom right)

You can download the Customized Startbar module from trac:
http://trac.sitecore.net/CustomizedStartbar/ (Thanks to Alistair Deneys for this module.)

A good example of the use of the customized start bar is a startbar with Quick action buttons that open the Content editor for the master, web and core database.
