      Hi everyone,

      Does anyone know of an easy way (at least easier than digging into code and customizing the plugin) to put a big “Back to Home” button in the HR Frontend page header? My site leads into the frontend via a link, but there’s no easy way to get back to the main site other than hitting the browser back button. The site logo that’s currently in the header leads back to the HR Frontend home page, not the main site homepage.

      Shawon, any chance this could be added as an optional button with customizable URL, set in the backend somewhere, in a future update? Any suggestions for a workaround in the meantime would be helpful.

      Thanks!

      Dear Ian,

      By default, WP ERP HR Frontend doesn’t have any option to go to Home page of your site. You will have to customize the plugin to add this option.

      Our office is currently closed due to the Religious festival. Once we are, I will reach out to our developer team regarding this and I will let you know.

      Thank you.

      @Raymond, the project we were using this for was shelved ages ago. I assume since you’re asking the question, that means their dev team never added an option for it. I don’t recall if I ever found a workaround at the time. Sorry that’s no help.

      You are right, Ian, we have not considered it. We had a discussion on this but all of our board was not agreed on this. Frontend is a totally different part than the backend and people are intended not to allow users seeing/accessing the backend. So, if we add a go-to backend button and if the Employee can go to the backend with that button, there is no reason to have a frontend then.

      Frontend is to prevent the Employee to access the backend. I hope Raymond got your answer 🙂

      Thanks

      Hi Mehedi. If that’s the conversation you had with your team, then unfortunately I think you’ve misunderstood the original request entirely. The button was not intended to bring the user to the backend, it was meant to take the user back to the home site. At the time of the original request, once a user navigated off the main site to go into the HR Frontend, there was no easy way to navigate back to the main user-facing set of pages (I’m not talking about the wp-admin backend here). A button with a customizable destination URL would solve that problem.
      For context, our site was used for multiple purposes. Company staff would log in to the main page, where they would see an intranet-style dashboard. Here they could find company info, wiki, communications from other staff, and also the HR Frontend. If they clicked into the HR Frontend, once they were done what they needed to do, there is (was) no easy way to get back to the main home page dashboard from within the HR Frontend.
      I hope that’s clearer. Like I mentioned before, we don’t use our site, or this plugin, anymore, so my investment in seeing this added beyond these comments is nil. But if other users are still commenting on this 1.5-year-old thread it means there’s still a need here.

      Hello Ian,

      Yes, I agree, this can be helpful for the multi-purpose sites as you had. Okay, I’ll discuss it again with the team if they agree to consider it 🙂

      Thanks for the clear explanation, Ian. We do have some plan to enhance the Frontend, so yes, your valuable feedback will help us 🙂
