Joomla Admin Menu Module - Tweaked for K2

This is an administrator module (installed via normal Joomla 1.5 extension installer) that has been rearranged and customized for sites primarily running K2 for content management. [Based on: Admin Menu K2 on JED]

If you look at the screenshots, you'll see that I've moved a number of things in the control panel - users, modules, components, global configuration... I've moved these things based on my own personal experience building over 100 Joomla sites and training each client personally to make changes on their own.

To install:

  1. Install via Joomla extension manager
  2. Navigate to Extensions -> Modules -> Administrator
  3. Edit the new K2 admin menu module, enable, assign to "menu" position
  4. Disable the standard Joomla admin module

    @Kai - Crack open the ZIP file and edit helper (dot) php - you'll see there are no language variables, just the menu link text directly in this file.

    @Nate - yes, that would be great. I would love to use this module, but would like to translate it into Norwegian. Since there are no language files, I am not sure which language strings are used.

    @Kai - There were no language files included with the original Admin K2 Module, either. Do you want to translate into your language and I will post your translation also?

    Great module, but there are no language files included for the module.
