Customizing interface

As shop administrators get more used to working within redSHOP and its interface and way of doing things, they also have at their disposal several tools and third party extensions which can enhance the experience of working with redSHOP and the back end. These can range from the "Quick Links" that the administrator can configure for easy access to commonly used sections, to administrator-oriented modules such as "redSHOP Dashboard", to templates and plugins such as those from AdminPraise and NoNumber.

Quick links / shortcuts (Dashboard)

redSHOP's Main Menu allows for the addition of "Quick Links", providing a space where the shop administrator can display shortcuts to the most frequently used sections in redSHOP.
