After doing a number of big projects with Hippo CMS, I came up with the idea of creating a plugin. I'm always looking for ways to optimize the user experience as I think user experience is one of the most important parts of a product. Hippo allows you to store your content in a folder structure. In my projects I've noticed that most users only use a few folders to work in. Sometimes this folder is located on a deeper level in the folder structure, which makes the user need to click even more before he reaches his content. My plugin allows the user to mark a folder as a favorite folder. A link will be created on the dashboard (the first screen after log-in). Using this link, the user can quickly navigate to that folder. The favorite folders will also be available in the link picker as a separate section. Continue reading to find out how it works!
