This mod adds icons to admin menu.
It gives visual hints while selecting menu positions. You navigate your admin area faster.


P.S. And it looks cool ;-)


Demo: OpenShop.org.ua/demo/AdminMenu

It's a great Extension, but adding additional Icons to other Mods's is not so easy for many, so, I have created a small Workaround to avoid screwing up when trying to add Icons to New Links in the Admin Menu Section.

It's my first small contribution to this great Software.

best regards

Hello OS Fan's,


Another one, this is the best multi-purpose Product Page Tab-Mod I have checked so far.

I put it in Fastdraw Style into my brandnew OpenShop v1.7 Version and it works well. Finally, I can add Tabs as many as I need and use them for everything imaginable.
I added the image link into the .xml-sub below in order to have an Icon as shown above:

<file name="admin/view/template/common/header.tpl" error="log">
      <operation error="log">
         <search position="after"><![CDATA[
            <li><a href="<?php echo $information; ?>"><?php echo $text_information; ?></a></li>
         <add trim="true"><![CDATA[
            <li><a href="<?php echo $product_tab; ?>"><img src="view/image/feed.png" style="vertical-align:middle;" height="22" width="22">&nbsp;<?php echo $text_product_tab; ?></a></li>

Just for those liking a nice, clean and complate Admin Section, when adding Stuff to it.
I know it would be >more professional< to add those Links where they belong, but I will hardcode most VQMOD's into the system one day, then, I'll make it better, I promise...

Oops, I just finished my own implementation into my New v1.7 Version, I took the Variables from the VQMOD .xml and implanted them with hardcoding into my Admin Section. Again, one less VQMOD required, every day, I move forward to eliminate them out of the XML-Sub.


This is what's left at present. I hope to implement most of them into the standard files soon.

It's my way of keeping the Serverload at a lower level , and prevent future VQMOD-incompatibilities wherever possible. Most Users work on shared Servers with hunderds of  'Inhabitants', every 'Gram' will eventually make a difference, if it ever comes to Traffic...


I've learned it this way, playing since the mid 90'es with Perl based Platforms and 'then' very small and slow Servers. So, keeping it will not harm, and it forces me to get used this this PHP stuff faster!


I love OpenShop, it's a great thing to make something out of it!


Best regards and thank you for your continued Engagement, something, many former 'Freaks' seem to have lost, at least from my point of view.
