|What the heck could be an easy toolbar ?
OK. I'll try to explain all the easy features in an easy manner Zwinkernd
First of all you will have instant access to ALL the extensions (and their functions) currently installed on your Joomla! system. You can display their Icon, or one of your own choice, in a convenient place for easy access. Any Extension installed afterwards requires only a few clicks to be included in your toolbar.
The toolbar is extendible with... let's call them 'plugins'. They are actually small code snippets with a function (or more) providing some extra functionality. This could be whatever you are able to imagine, or your programming skills permit.
All standard Joomla functions are provided as plugins. So there is a 'logout plugin' an 'online user plugin' and so on.
More advanced plugins will provide you with information about memory usage, load values or free disk space on your servers hard disk. These plugins are also included in the package but are not yet activated.
There is an upload & install function for plugins that will be released in the future.
For the coders we have included "EditArea" Code editor, so you can edit the plugin code online.
This is still somewhat experimental, so... don't forget your backup.
Plugin packages can include their own images and language files.
We are using the new Joomla! 1.5 unified installer with a special adapter.
For a multiuser environment you can provide every user with his/her very own personal toolbar. Meaning you can asign every button of your toolbar to a specific user or group.
This is not ment to be an 'access control' feature but for providing a somewhat 'easy access'.
Did i mentioned that the toolbar is multilingual? yes of course, like the new Joomla! now gives you the long awaited localized backend, the whole toolbar is also localized. So you can provide your users with a personal toolbar in their own language.
The script tries to complain with MVC structure and of course is native Joomla 1.5 compatible - no legacy mode.
