Is there any way to re-order the admin navigation menu?

I'd like it to read:
Dashboard
Sales
Catalog
Customers
Extensions
etc
etc

Please excuse noob Opencart ignorance :-[

Cheers,

Yes, by using an Event.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Hi Paul,
I guess basically it's for users in our little business that handling orders is their main part of their workload, and most often used menu at the top?!

Also because I want to. What I mean is software needs to be functional in not only what it does, but also in how it does it. As software matures, becomes stable and functional then these fancy bits always help finish a product, so menu re-ordering should be a thing, front-end and back-end.

As mentioned by xxvirusxx, editing a twig file is possible, as an ex-IT person I can do this, but non-techies probably not, and anything else for a "user" then definitely not.

Cheers,
Iain

so do it :-\ you only have to do it once - they won’t have to do anything

I have a free module that adds modules - it will get you started without editing the file itself - useful if you mess up.

It is probably much easier just to write it again than re-order it - so just replace all the lines with new lines in the order you want them. https://github.com/opencart/opencart/wi ... ion-System

DISCLAIMER:
You should not modify core files .. if you would like to donate a cup of coffee I will write it in a modification for you.
