We have come up with a few modules that make it easier/faster to adminster a site that uses OWS.
First, a module on every page that is visible only to administrators. It lists all of the OWS modules on the page (except itself) and a link to the administration pane for that configuration. Basically - you don't need to go into edit mode in DNN to get to OWS.
Second, a bug reporting module that scans recent logs for errors and displays the user, time, and module (with config link of course).
Does anyone else have any tools they use to make OWS even more easy to use?
