Iconizing Lifetype Admin

Iconizing Lifetype Admin

Postby Nomad on Sun Oct 21, 2007 3:29 pm

For version 2 I was thinking of working on Iconizing the Admin section. Mainly the Dashbaord and then each general page within the Admin section. The pages such as 'Manage', 'Resources' and 'Control Center'. I need a little info though on how to get started on this..

How are the links created? I've looked at the admin xml file and Locales/admin/locale_en_UK.php. Now I'm sure that somehow this is how the links are created but am not sure. What I'm thinking is to replace the 'Text based Links' with Icons with text and lay them out neatly..

Anyway - what would be needed to do this?

You can't add links based on the content of menus.xml, unless you extend menus.xml to include an additional attribute that contains a link to the icon/image and then modify the code that generates the menu tabs to display the icon in the right place.
