KL Admin Rocks

Posted on 16 May 2016

Not only does it work as expected, it has features that I was not looking for, but love using!

Ease of use

Very easy to use.


I only needed to contact support once and their response was quick, friendly, and excellent.


Very complete.

Value for money

Top notch.

I used this to: I am using the plugin on most of my sites.


Posted on 16 May 2016

Does what it says. Does what you expect...and a little bit more.

Ease of use

Self explanatory


Since one problem was solved with an update before I could even report the problem.... speaks for itself.


Very thorough documentation... which I've never needed. Was just looking.

Value for money

The only better value would be free... but then, would this app get updates and support? Of course not. Happy to pay the reasonable cost for

I used this to: about 20 websites.

Excellent Product

Posted on 02 October 2015

Very comprehensive functionality. Let's you completely change the look and feel of the admin screens without needing to create a whole new t

Ease of use

I'm not sure if they could make it much easier. It's very straightforward. I barely needed the documentation.


Super responsive and fast support.


Highly accurate and easy to follow.

Value for money

If you have multiple clients like I do, the ability to easily customize the look and feel of the admin is worth way more than what these guy

I used this to: Unless I'm building a personal site, I'm going to use this for every site I build going forward. Even for a personal site I think it's worth using just because it makes the admin area look so cool.


All needed to customize correctly the administration part are present.
Suggestion:add the possibility to change the url of the administrator

Ease of use

Very easy, no need to read lot of documantation to understand how it works.


Not needed on my side, because it's very simple to use.


Very well documented

Value for money

Can use on multiple domain, so it's great for agency to customize administrator of our customers for a single price

I used this to: web agency sites


The functionality was excellent. The settings export/import feature is awesome.

Ease of use

Very easy to use and understand. A no-brainer, really.


Really fantastic! The version I installed created a conflict with another component. Support was on top of it immediately.


Very good although the extension is so simple, it's hardly necessary.

Value for money

An excellent value.

I used this to: Changing branding for a client where there will be multiple users accessing the back end to manage directory listings.


Works without any problems.

Ease of use

Very easy to use.


Prompt support from the developer, but really not needed. It works perfecty.


Documentation is included with the component and is available on their site.

Value for money

Costs hardly anything, and can be used on unlimited sites. A bargain!

I used this to: Great for changing the look of the admin panel. My clients like it and it helps me make sure I am working on the correct site when I am multitasking multiple sites at once.

With some simple settings you can completely change the look and feel of the admin interface. If you spend hours every day doing Joomla admin, this is a welcome visual relief!

If you too admin many Joomla environments, you can customize each so that you never again accidentally "do the wrong thing" on the "wrong environment".

This extention is what I was looking to make the admin area more professional and cover the needs of my Joomla costumers. I can change the looking for any company with the logos, images and information that they represent. Very easy to manage. Thank you very much for the great work.

Nice Extension
