Joomla 1.6 Menu Manager

  • Access both the Menu Item and Menus list from new Linkbar.
  • Integrated management of trashed articles.
  • New filtering options.
  • When menu items are unpublished or trashed, all of the children are also set to the same state.
  • A new safety feature is that you can only delete items permanently when filtering only on trashed items.
  • Batch set the access level of selected menu items.
  • Copy or move menus from one menu to another and also choose the new parent item.
  • New Toolbar actions to save the current menu item as a copy, or to save it and then start a new menu item without going back to the list.  These icons should become standard across all core components where applicable.
  • The state counts are now linked back to the menu item list and set the appropriate filter automatically for you.
  • All the modules that are mapped to the menu are displayed.

* There will be more new features in Joomla 1.6 as it moves towards a stable release.
