Add link to the stage and live site in the CMS menu and on pages
Getting to the site from the CMS can be tricky at times as there's no direct "Go to the home page" link in the CMS (unless you're on the home page). Making it easier to get to the site either in Stage or Live mode would help users on screens where the split edit mode isn't available (i.e anything sub 19") and where the page is a complex type.
This could be solved by having the Site Title text link to the home page in the CMS menu.

Agree that this would be useful. I currently do this on all my sites by adding an extra link on the side menu. I just followed this tutorial: http://doc.silverstripe.org/en/developer_guides/customising_the_admin_interface/how_tos/customise_cms_menu

simple and nice idea.

I've always thought it would make sense to make the Site Title in the CMS a link to the site. Good idea.
