This module is a quick way to add additional icons to your control panel without having to install a number of different modules or a component. The Joomla 1.6-1.7-2.5 version can also be used to display the icons in the title position so they show on all pages.

Suggestion: not only show the name of the icon at the backend, but also a preview. This makes selecting an icon much easier.
This module goes a long way to help with this by enabling me to configure the key aspects a client would need in an attractive menu that is tailored to their specific web site.
It installed without any issues and was configured within minutes.
Excellent work LK :)
The only improvements I can see would be to allow more then ten icons out-of-the-box. The stock quick icons mod doesn't suite my client needs (I really don't want them to have quick access to some of the defaults), and if this mod could have more than 10, I'd just replace the stock mod.
The other thing would be to be able to reorder them without having to re-enter each one. The latter would probably require restructuring the mod and making it database driven- so why mess with a good thing?
Thanks for the great work- it is really useful!
