There are a lot of tips and tricks for the UI menu, but none seems to fit me
I'd like to build some functionality that is to be accessed from all
catalogs. And I'd like to use the admin menu system, but the functionality
will be completely different.
This means different pages, different menu items and everything else is
different. The only connection to the admin menu is that I like the menu from
the construct demo; it would be a good idea to start from there, and my
system will not be copied to each and every catalogue.
So I thought I'd copy the lib/UI/pages/admin directory and change the
functionality from there. Or is there a better way?
There are a lot of UI_BASE all over the place. Seems they have to be changed
to another variable for my purposes.
But I have a hard time finding the menu options themselves. How do I change
the names "Orders", "Customers" et al in the menu?
If this is the wrong way of doing it, I'd really like to know.
