search bar in the admin panel

Post by akashic on December 29th 2008, 12:40 am

Hi

I was thinking it may be a good idea to have a search bar in the admin panel, for example if you are looking to change something but can't remember where you found it you can put a keyword in the search bar and it would take you to the particular section.

I don't expect the people who are used to the admin panel would use it much but it would sure help out the new people.

I the people(and myself) using this, but a tutorial on the admin panel (in which i am working on) would be alot more understanding.

I can atually see the newer users using this more than any FAQ listing, and i also see that this is actually quite a good suggestion for the admin panel.

I'm voting a solid yes.

I voted no. I don't think its really required. If you spend about 10 minutes just clicking around in the admin panel a day, you'll soon know where everything is.

I personally don't need it, as I already know where 95% of the options are found.

That administration panel is very easy to use compared to others.

I vote no.

Sorry I vote no. If you just spend time and look on what things do you will know where stuff is. Also that's why forumotion has a FAQ Wink

Voted No, and 3 members above me already said what had to be said. Plus - as an administrator you HAVE TO know where the things are in your admin panel.

Like I said, people who know where things are may not use it much, but it would help new people a lot. If they were looking to change the header for example, instead of asking here, they could simply type in header and be taken to that section - chances are once they were there they would know what to do.

Yes i agree as well. I do understand that the admins need to know where everything is located. But when you are new there are a lot of options and finding one can be a pain until you get used to it. I am voting yes as well.
