I) What is JSN Power Admin?
JSN PowerAdmin is an admin navigation extension, which makes management of your Joomla website easier than ever with features like Spotlight Search, Site Manager, Template Styles Manager, and more.
For Joomla newbies, the simple things in Joomla such as changing module positions, hiding an article’s title, or relocating menu items might be difficult and they will have to spend time to control the website. So this is the reason why JSN Power Admin was born. The main purpose of the extension is to help people manage Joomla websites in an easy and fun way. It allows you to have full control over your Joomla website in a single screen. Editing website content, searching for items, etc. has never been easier than ever when using JSN Power Admin. With the extension, you can:
- Control all website content, including Menus, Components, and Modules in just one place. The user can easily do tasks such as editing details and reordering items using drag-n-drop. There is no need to compare the front-end and the back-end content.
- Locate a wide variety of items that you need to edit but have no idea about where they are.
- Edit, duplicate or uninstall all existing template styles with just a few clicks.
II) Insight of features
1) Site manager: “Manage menu, component and modules in one place”
Site Manager helps you to control all website content in just one place. In Site Manager, you can manage the three main sections of your website: Menus, Components and Modules, in one area.
Users can easily do tasks such as editing details or reordering items using drag-n-drop operations. There is no need to compare between the front-end and the back-end content.
2) Spotlight Search: “Search for anything instantly”
The main purpose of Spotlight Search is to search for website items like articles in just few seconds. It allows users to quickly locate a wide variety of items as typing.
The results will be shown immediately
In your Joomla Website, you need to click a lot to search for front-end items in the back-end. But Spotlight Search can help you find items in your website, and access them quickly.
3) Admin Bar
The Admin bar is the new editor switcher in JSN Power Admin. You do not need to go to user Manager or Global Configuration to switch off the editor for the current user as usual. Just with clicks, the process of switching off the editor can be implemented.
4) Template Styles Manager
You can conveniently choose to access the default template styles manager or the brand new Template Styles Manager. JSN PowerAdmin provides you with a quick way to access all installed template styles. And you can do some basic operations on a template such as Edit, Make Default, Duplicate, Delete and Uninstall quickly with a few clicks.

To help you manage Joomla!’s back-end in the way you prefer, JSN PowerAdmin has a “Configuration” page. Here, you can configure the logo and its menu link, search coverage or history number; turn off the “Uninstall” feature or manage extensions support, and so on.
Go to “Component” => “JSN PowerAdmin” and click on “Configuration”
