The Administrator Menu Bar

Type: mod_fullmenu

Located at the top of the Control Panel the buttons on this menu opens links - via cascading menus - to all the Back-end functions of Joomla!

note icon NOTE: The menu bar will become 'greyed out' on occasions and will not allow access to its options. This will happen when an Item - of whatever description - is open in an edit mode, for example whilst creating a new Content Item.

The buttons found in the Menu Bar on the standard installation of Joomla! are:

Home: Click this button from anywhere in the Back-end to return to the Control Panel.

Site: Provides access to all the configuration and site wide functions.

Menu: Provides access to the controls for the Menus created on the web site via the Menu Manager.

note icon NOTE: Any new Menus that are created at a later date will also be listed here.

Content:

Components: Provides access to the Components installed on Joomla! By default the following items are installed and activated. These Components are configured during the installation process if the Super Administrator chose to install the example data to the MySQL database. New Components that are subsequently installed would normally be appended to this Menu. Modules: Provides access to the main control pages for the installed Modules in both the Front-end and Back-end of Joomla!. These Modules are configured during the installation process if the Super Administrator chose to install the example data to the MySQL database. Mambots: Provides access to the main control screen - the Mambot Manager - of the installed Mambots. These Mambots are configured during the installation process if the Super Administrator chose to install the example data to the MySQL database. Installers: Provides access to the installer managers allowing new functions to be uploaded and installed to the Joomla! installation.
