Tip: Shortcuts in Joomla Admin Saves Time

If you find yourself constantly clicking through the menu systems of Joomla to get to a particular place, I have a time-saving tip for you.

It's really quite easy to create a custom list of shortcuts you often use and place it in the control panel of your Joomla admin.


This is how you do it:

  1. Copy the links you mostly use from the backend.
  2. Go to the "Module manager"
  3. Click "Administrator"
  4. Create a new Custom HTML module and put in your links there
  5. You will want to create meaningful anchor texts for your links instead of using the links themselves. It is easier to use that way.
  6. Assign the module to the "cpanel" position and save the module.

Now, you have a list of direct links to your favorite parts of Joomla.
