Admin Menu Configurator

Customise the way admin users find and access site content and settings by configuring the admin menu with your own structure, labels, icons and links.

Admin Menu Configurator and Customisations

Customising the Menu

In the Admin Menu Configurator interface you’ll see two configuration panels. The left side displays the full, default admin menu which you can use to build out your own customised version in the right side configuration panel.

You can do this individually by dragging and dropping an item from the left to the right (or vice versa, to remove items). Or, to start with all items and just remove a few, you can make a complete copy of the default menu using the “ Copy Menu” button at the top of the left panel.

You can also create brand new menu items with your own internal or external links, labels and custom icons (or choose from available system icons).

Once you have menu items added to your custom configuration you can reorganise them and even nest them within other items via drag and drop.

Clicking on an item will open its options for editing where you can save any changes, delete the item or enable/disable it temporarily.

Be sure to save the menu configuration with the “SAVE” button at the bottom of the screen to apply the menu to the admin interface.

With a custom admin menu in place, the CMS will no longer make any changes or updates to the admin menu. Newly added Custom Modules or features added due to system updates, will need to be manually added to your menu configuration.

If you are wanting to block access to parts of the admin for certain admin users, implementing Admin User Roles may be a better option.

Menu Item Options

Item Name
Enter a descriptive name that will display as the menu item’s label.
If the item was originally copied from the default menu, its original name will be displayed for reference under this field.
Use the add file icon () in this field to choose from a range of system icons or alternatively upload your own custom image.
Only uploaded images to the system directory can be used here. No external or absolute image paths are allowed.
The suggested icon dimensions are 24px x 24px and .svg file format is preferred, however, most other image sizes and formats should work.
Items are enabled by default. Uncheck this option to hide this menu item from the admin, but not delete it permanently.
