We install this on all our sites, makes administration much easier for clients. One thing: it will sometimes get removed on Joomla updates. Just reinstall.

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 :)

We build all of our sites with K2 so this is a not brainer module. It cleans up the menu of links that we never use and makes it easier for the users to find what they are looking for. Well done.

WARNING: The download link directly download the 1.5 ONLY version. I made the mistake of installing that on my 2.5 site. Not pretty!
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 :(

Very handy module! Works fine on two websites I installed it.

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.

Good module but it didnt work for me on a site with MissionControl (admin)Template
Owner's reply

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.

Nice idea but it didnt work for me on my site as it was always disabled and greyed out.

Works perfect, only one cons, it should use a standard lanuage .ini files if it possible. Thanks. I will do a full polish transaltion and put on my blog.

Thanks for the review, the new Joomla 2.5 module now uses K2 languages files for menu items.

This is one of those simple modules which basically removes the default backend menu which would normally allow you to select Joomla content such as articles, categories, sections etc.

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.

Well done.
