Hi Salvador,

Many of the seldom used, or not entirely reliable "features" from the 
admin were "removed" to allow for a cleaner starting point for your 
average user with this bootstrap template.

With that said, many of the actual pages and content remains, and can be 
"turned on" simply by adding it back into a menu, or in some cases 
retrieving it from the another location. For example, the menu editor is 
an admin page, and is contained in whatever Interchange version you are 
using at

<your IC location>/lib/UI/pages/admin/menu_editor.html

So in some cases it would just be a matter of adding it (the tab or 
link) back onto the menu in admin. We intend at some time to complete 
the effort to get the admin into a modern template like bootstrap as 
well, but were not far enough along to include that with this release.

Menu editor is a bit of a different deal because we did include a new 
version of the menu tag called "bootmenu.tag" in order to take advantage 
of bootstraps built in menu capacity for displays. The intent was to 
still be able to possibly use, albeit in a more limited fashion, 
existing menus, but at the same time display them using mostly css.

So, overall, the bootstrap templates were designed first to accommodate 
a quick start for a new modern, clean, simple catalog, and second to 
allow use of existing catalogs with some level of conversion effort.

As long as you know that most of the old pages that were in Interchange 
admin previously are for the most part still around, with a little 
searching and some minimal admin menu mods, you can get them back. As to 
whether they will still function...... things like menu editor probably 
will, but things like content editor probably won't!

Good Luck!
