SMF 2.1-style Admin Area (SMF 2.0.x Only)

SMF 2.1-STYLE ADMIN AREA v1.11
By Dougiefresh -> Link to Mod


Introduction
This mod reorganizes the layout of SMF v2.0.x's Admin area so that it closely matches SMF 2.1 Alpha 1's menu, as of July 28, 2014.  It also rewrites the "Adminstration Center" page to look like SMF 2.1 Alpha 1....

Most of the modifications are to Admin.php and Admin.template.php, with a few other edits to make the moved menu entries work.

In SMF 2.1 Alpha 1, there is no Core Features page.  Those settings have been migrated to the individual pages to enable/disable the feature.  These modifications are not duplicated, as they would add MUCH, MUCH more code to the admin area....

Installed without any hassles and works a treat (SMF v2.0.9-ish).

Good one, again, Dougie!

Nice job.

Technically if you followed the code that was put in, the only images used would be Crystal Project ones; Oxygen is used for the avatars in 2.1 and Fugue is used for some smileys and some menu stuff, but not for the main admin area.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Thank you.  I'll update the mod to reflect this information....

I think it's a good thing that some long-standing issues are getting tackled. I'm a fan of bug-fix releases and I'm quite pleased in general that the cycle of 'only ever doing security fixes' was broken to include legitimate bug fixes too.

As to 'special few', the team all get access to patches before deployment for testing. I've also been known to have the odd pre-release slung my way for testing, but not on this occasion, not that I've had the time to really look at it anyway.

Another great mod, dougie! You're really good at this.

2.0.9??? ??? Well, a new version is certainly a good thing.

As to 'special few' ...

I should have put quotes around it as well. It was said with tongue-in-cheek. I know most if not all the team gets an advanced copy for testing ... :D

All the team should have access to the board where such things are discussed. I, however, am not a team member, so I don't get privileged access - and on this one they're more than capable of fixing it themselves (seeing how I know two of the things to be fixed because I'm the discoverer)

Eh, there's nothing seriously exciting in 2.0.9. A few bug fixes, one of which stems back years and no-one noticed before, so I don't think it ever bit anyone before but I thought it should be fixed.

Thank you for pointing that out.  It's been fixed in both the first post and the mod itself!
