If you're using a number of plugins that interact with content in some way, you might notice the entity menu can get pretty crowded.  You can edit/delete/feature/like/subscribe/pin/export/share - that's a lot to cram into a small space.

This plugin groups those items into a tidy dropdown menu for each entity.  In the plugin settings you can set items to be left out of the dropdown so they display normally.  See the screenshot for an example.


Note: uses css styles to fit the Athabasca University page, you may want to change that to fit your own site.  Styles can be found in views/default/entitymenu_dropdown/css.php


Produced for and with the support of Athabasca University, Canada.
