edit page link

Generally speaking, I get this gray bar shown here >> http://screencast.com/t/6k2LxlEn6 when logged-into my Wordpress site.  Fortunately, I usually see it and do not need to go into the back-end directly, and then navigate to the page in order to see it.  I can just click on "edit page" in the gray bar and I am instantly where I need to be.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always appear.  How do I get the bar to stay put for my admin login only?

For reference, my Wordpress website is tedpenner.com

I'm not sure, Matt.  Thanks for the plug-in.  That might work if I could restrict it to only show up for me.  Perhaps based on a cookie or something.  I am not sure I want even the link to that to be available to anyone.
you can check by logging in using a normal user also i would suggest you to create a test web which will help you test plugins and other stuff before you apply on your actual site

I should have alot I don't have.  Will your suggestion be visible to the public?
nope you should create a private directory called test123 or whatever name you can think of and put your wordpress clone (which is your main website) so each time you want to try something you should do it on test system

My web developer was going to do that I think but so far it hasn't been done.  None-the-less, it is probably good for me to learn how.  That subject is a bit off topic though.

Since you brought it up, what would be the steps?  We are using Bluehost shared hosting platform.  As I understand it, Wordpress is an auto-install from there.
ok basically what you need to do is backup your current databse and create a new database based on the backup file if they offer you phpmyadmin its really simple to do that.
download your entire website use a ftp client such as filezilla and then create a new test directory and upload again then entire files all you have to do is modify the wordpress setting file provide a new database details if you have alot of content then you can run some sql script to change the path since the url will be different in test site data is not a big concern its the actual configuration which matters so whenever you want to apply new templates or plugins you do this on your test system first your developer can easily do this for you
