    This is nice, but what would be really useful would be the ability to edit customized plugin translation files, so files located in the project /lang/ directory (and its subdirectories).

    But nice plugin anyways, thanks for the work!

    Great plugin. Works fine and good addition to the dashboard. Some suggestions for improvement:

    • show content in sub folders (currently it only lists content in the main content folder)
    • add an option to only show pages/content for the active theme
    • make it possible for site owners to prevent editors from changing the widget options (currently, a user that can only edit static pages, can still select other types of content in the widget settings and thus edit pages or partials, which they shouldn't be allowed)

    Thank you for your suggestions!

    I updated the plugin. Now it lists items from subfolders too. The active theme option is available since v1.2.2. If you like to prevent editors from changing the widget options, use the Backend Elite plugin.
