How to Create Custom Administrator Menus in Joomla

How to Create New Administrator Menus in Joomla

One new feature in Joomla 3.7 is the ability to create new admin menus.

This is a very handy feature for sites with multiple users. Instead of trying to manipulate the permissions for some users, you can simply give them a different set of menu links.

In this example, I'll show you how to make an admin menu that only shows for the Administrator user group.

What are Multilingual Associations in Joomla?

Multilingual Associations Manager, a New Feature for Joomla 3.7

We have already covered several new features in Joomla 3.7 including custom fields and an improved URL structure.

Joomla 3.7 also includes a new component called "Multilingual Associations". This will make your life much easier if you build multi-lingual Joomla sites.

Before now, there was no easy place to manage all of your translation items. Every translated item had to be found and edited individually. With the Multilingual Associations component, you will be able to edit all your translations in a single interface. This will save you a lot of time and energy.

Here's Why We Use Recurring Subscriptions at Joomlashack

Recurring Subscriptions are Key for Sustainable Joomla Businesses

It's not easy to build a strong and sustainable business.

That's true whether your business is in construction, retail, food, farming, or any other industry.

It's definitely not easy to build a strong and sustainable business in Joomla. The platform is over 10 years old and the user-base is active, but not growing quickly.

However, over the last two years, we've managed to grow Joomlashack. Our revenues have doubled every six months. This enables us to add more developers and support staff, plus push out frequent product updates. 94% of Joomlashack tickets get a reply inside 3 hours, and 90% of users say the support is "great".

Yes, we have some good extensions and templates, but one thing has made that growth possible: recurring subscriptions.

Some customers are upset about this, so I want to talk through the reasons behind this decision.

How to Use K2 Sub-Templates in Joomla

What K2 Sub-Templates Are and How To Create Them

Joomla provides you with a powerful and safe way to override your site's default HTML layouts.

Why does it matter to you? Making changes to Joomla's core files is often necessary.

The wrong way is to directly edit Joomla's files. If you do, you'll lose all your changes when you next update your site.

The right way is to use an override. You can place copies of any layout file into your /templates/ folder. Joomla checks this folder first before loading the original files and if it finds these files present, it uses them instead of the core files. If you're new to using overrides, check out OSTraining which has 13 great tutorials on using template overrides.
