Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Plugin


Missing Link makes it possible to access all of EE2's major content and site management features from the front-end of your site. Edit entries, publish new content and more.

Intuitive, simplified content management

Missing Link simplifies EE’s content management workflow, placing a consistent ‘Admin’ menu on every page when an admin user is logged in. In addition to ‘edit this’ functionality the menu provides access to all of the other key areas of your control panel, including publishing new entries and managing comments. Missing Link is smart enough to detect when changes are completed and will prompt the user to click a reload link and view their changes.

Support for inline edit links ensures that even entries without their own dedicated page can easily be edited via the frontend.


In addition to making client’s lives easier and keeping training costs down Missing Link is a useful developer tool, providing links to edit the current template, toggle output debugging and clear caching. Missing Link detects user’s permissions automatically, so admin-related links will be hidden from content managers with no configuration necessary.

For further details see the Missing Link overview and user guide.
