I already try to submit the ideas in Github and it seem to have been forgotten. I even contact the Team leader of the administrator template and it went nowhere.

This is for that I start that post.

Anyway, I’m not a coder, I know I can do the modification myself relatively easily. Only the placement of the action button will be probably required a small change in the structural code, the rest is simple CSS.

So where is the coordination and resposibility of the admin template design working group? Is there not a admin design work group leader that can step in and discuss and manage the situation here?

Isnt that why Joomla have created this structured way of working?

Where is the Joomla admin template leadership? hello ?

The backend template team was a temporary structure, which has been disbanded when the PR was merged. What are you expecting to be announced here, which hasn't been announced?

Great, can you tell us what will be done to fix the administrative template and was announced here? :D

I ask because I don’t recall seeing anything clear about any plan to modify the faulty design? :eek:

Imho the design of the admin template is too confusing to the average user. It even confuses me. I was only able to find the obvious stuff because I already know Joomla!.

Really? If post count is associated with ones knowledge of Joomla, then I clearly have f*** all clue about the CMS

IMHO

Never judge someone by the number of posts. Since, typically, those who know how to do things and not have much time to help others, they don't write posts in the forums.

I have writed only 66 posts, and i have joined the forum in 2007.
Maybe i know Joomla better than 99% of users in this forum. Maybe.
I use Joomla since 2005, and i have started with Mambo.

Are 66 posts a signal of my ~ 400 websites developed with Joomla (as a freelance and in team with our web agency)?
I speak of B2C and B2B websites with custom templates and custom extensions for customer which have revenue over some million €... but i have only 66 posts! :-[

(And that's why I allow myself to judge on how bad is the new J4 backend templayte, just because I know what it mean working, and not playing as a hobby, with a cms.)

Please!

Calm down its not about post count and knowledge of Joomla.

Its just very common that spammers like GarageGear come and do one post that is very irrelevant to the topics and post a few more to make their own prs links later. So for me the user memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=853362 behave like this and Toivo already removed his spam link but kept his post. I just want to remove this too bcs its against the rules to post links like that and especially irrelevant links to the topic in your first post!

Hope thats clarifies what the situation is Lodder? Updated: and simbus82

This is a real UX and great Web Design example.

Remove the square brackets around "you tube". (the brackets are added by this forum).
The video does play when you fix the URL - select/copy/paste to your browser, then remove the brackets.

Thanks AMurray, just watch the video.

The mechanic is ok, but again a washout overall design with no clear demarcation between menu and content.
Worst, No quick icons to important tools hidden in the menus in the dashboard.

Saddly not the right direction !
