I was inspired when reading the blogpost from Jaime Santos Alcon about his first bookmarklet Go To Publication. When seeing a blueprinted item in a child publication, it would be great to browse with one click to the same location in the origin publication. Great idea, that can save a lot of clicking and browsing in Tridion.
From my point of view bookmarklets are useful, but have some drawbacks:
- The are a bit nerdy and not very likely to be broadly understood by Content Managers and other users.
- With large organizations everybody has to install them in their own browser.
Since this is also useful for non-developers, I think it was worth creating a GUI extension out of it. Then we lower the barrier for usage and it’s easily available for everybody.
I have shared the code of the GUI extension on github: https://github.com/Guzzter/GoToOwningPublication. You can download it there and install the GUI extension by hand or using Robert Curlette’s GUI installer script.
Hope it helps.
