Questions answered by this recipe
Is there a solution to get all editing, administer and layout options on one place to provide a nice overview and easy access.
A desktop-application like menu for authors and admins. The menus position is fixed at the top of the page.
Tryout a demo on http://demo.netstreams.org/menu. Login/Password is Author/test or Admin/test.
Cookbook:AuthUser. Create authgroup @admins and @authors. The menu shows only actions/options which a user is allowed to perform. The menu works also without AuthUser but you have to change the if authgroup @authors/@admins conditions in Site.Menu.
This is a beta release. Suggestions and bug reports are very welcome. This receipted uses Cookbook:HorizontalVerticalMenu. This may change in to future in favour to a JQuery plugin.
