Modules for J2 and J3 are only template upgrades of the Joomla Admin Menu module which will now give you options to show/hide both the Default Content and K2 Content menu.
Sorry to keep you waiting with the J3 version.
Looking forward to 3.0 version
First of all, thank you for your review. As for module being reset, it's because this is not a new module you are installing, but a new layout and config xml which offcourse gets overwriten on Joomla update. Just reinstall the module and you're good to go :)
Module for Joomla3 is comming soon :)
Besides that though, this is a great extension. It was confusing for me to have to tell my clients to go to components>K2>Items and have a content tab right up front that they never used. This extension fixes that completely! Now with the 2.5 version you can turn choose to hide the standard "content" menu and only display the K2 menu.
Thanks for this great extension!
Thanx, great i I can help.... Unfortunately JED doesn't allow two download links for each extension version, so this is the only thing I could do :(
Only a pitty is that the normal articles are only accessible by the control panel, sometimes you'll need both shortcuts.
Thanks for the review, in the new Joomla 2.5 module you can choose to show both the default Content menu and K2 Content menu or only one of them.
This is because the MissionControl admin template uses it's own menu module. You could manually edit your menu layout in rtmenuhelper.class.php and change the links, but since it does not use the default activated menu module, it can not work.
If you or your client is using K2 soley for content creation, then this will prevent then from accidentally creating Joomla content instead of K2.
Use this in conjunction with disabling the Admin Quick Icons, for Joomla Content.
