adi_recent_tab – Recent Items

To help speed up workflow – especially during website construction – this plugin gives you a menu of recently accessed TXP items.


Install & activate the plugin in the normal way. A new top level TXP admin tab – Recent – will then be available.

The Recent tab dropdown menu shows a list of articles/images/links/pages/forms etc that you have recently visited in the admin interface.

This menu contains items that you have visited – as opposed to the Recent Articles list in the Article tab which only contains articles that have been recently modified.

The Menu

The Recent menu gives you direct access to:

  • recently visited items
  • and their tabs

The Tab

The recent items are also available on a standalone page – simply click on the Recent tab itself.

Here you will also find preferences to:

  • specify which recently visited items you want to record
  • set the number of items to remember
  • choose whether to have article/image/link/file IDs included in the menu


You can adjust who gets to use the plugin by setting the privileges in options.


To install the Textpack, go to the plugin’s Options tab and click on “Install textpack”. This will copy & install it from a remote server. The number of language strings installed for your language will be displayed.

If the Textpack installation fails (possibly due to an error accessing the remote site), the alternative is to click the Textpack also available online link. This will take you to a website where the Textpack can be manually copied & pasted into the TXP Admin – Language tab.

Additions and corrections to the Textpack are welcome – please use the Textpack feedback form.
