Different staff members typically have different roles within a community - especially larger communities, where you may have staff responsible for the theme, others handling tickets and different staff maintaining the system. In 3.x, we had a 'Bookmarks' system in the AdminCP that allowed you to create a menu of frequently-used sections in an effort to make them easier to get to, rather than navigating the main menus.<br />&#160;<br />As with every feature in IPS4, we took some time to think about what this Bookmark feature aimed to achieve, and whether it was the best way to achieve it (seriously - we have considered everything you'll see in IPS4 very carefully; nothing gets a free pass).<br />&#160;<br />We determined through speaking to administrators that the primary use of this feature was actually to get to one place quickly - whatever place that might be. It appeared to be rarely used as an actual bookmarks menu, and besides, duplicating browser functionality should always send up a red flag. We decided to rethink the idea.<br />&#160;<br />What we decided to do instead is allow AdminCP menus, both primary and secondary, to be reordered on a per-admin basis. This means each admin can set the AdminCP menu up however works best for themselves. If you use the theme system a lot, you can make that your first menu item. Or, if you use the ticket system in Nexus, you can put that first.<br /><br />Here's how it works:<br />&#160;<br /><a href='' class='bbc_url' title=''></a><div id='attach_wrap' class='rounded clearfix'> <h4>Attached Thumbnails</h4> <ul> <li class=''> <a class='resized_img' rel='lightbox[9654]' id='ipb-attach-url-56132-0-61936600-1395932083' href="http://community.inv...1392824682.png" title="reorder.png - Size: 28.05KB, Downloads: 0"><span rel='lightbox'><img class='bbc_img' src="http://community.inv...4682_thumb.png" id='ipb-attach-img-56132-0-61936600-1395932083' style='width:250;height:185' class='attach' width="250" height="185" alt="Attached Image" /></span></a> </li> </ul></div><br /><a href='http://community.inv...ncp-reordering/' class='bbc_url' title=''>View the full article</a><br /><br />View the full article
