Once the plugin is installed, users will have immediate access to the plugins features in the User Bar.
Note: This plugin was developed to help address a common complaint in Jive 5, regarding the removal of "Your View" where people used HTML Widgets to manage direct links to their places of interest.
This plugin addresses the essence of that use-case by giving the users the ability to quickly being able to manage a set of 10 links for ready access in the UI.
The links drop down expanded with 2 of the 10 links defined.
Simple Edit Screen to manage your Quick Links
Note: URLs much be relative to the Jive Environment, unless otherwise allowed by the configuration. (see Configuration section below)
Plugin install through Admin Console.
Configuration is now done through an Admin Console Screen. System > Settings > Configure QuickLinks
- Reported December 16th, 2011: When selected from your default landing page under User Preferences, selecting "Links" will result in a person's default page being "blank".
- Workaround: For the time being, it is recommended that this option not be used.
- Fix: Corrected in version 188.8.131.52 released on 02/08/2012

Will lobby Jive to include this feature into the core product. Suggested placement is to the left of the History icon, as this is a means of getting back to content similar to History, Bookmarks, and Search.
I am not looking to grow this plugin's functionality much, as I think it would be served as a core platform implementation.
Please vote on this idea if you like this plugin, or even the concept:
