Redesign XOOPS Admin Section

I'm been using XOOPS for years now and one problem that keeps coming up with our clients is the issue of how complicated the admin section is to use. It is a bit intimidating for a lot of people. So I put together a mockup of some suggestions on improvements of the admin section. I'm a designer, so I can't help with the programming, but I can help with the HTML/CSS development. Let me know what you guys think.

Notes:
Organization by Action, rather than by module
Expandable action sections
Ability to minimize Admin sections or turn them off
Icons are under the LGPL.
WYSIWYG integration for blocks and news is key (Fckeditor or TinyMCE with ibrowser)
Notes section for users to keep reminders
Real time user list
Maybe a drop down menu with redundant info should go across the top?
Admin Section ought to be themable to further customize stuff


Thanks!

Great work technigrafa

This is one of my projects at these days

I like joomla admin section, it's based on daily webmaster works more than the CMS structures,so we need simple powerfull administration panel with nice colors and icons.

WYSIWYG integration for blocks is option can doing by user and compatibility of admin panel with all browsers is very important.

Finally, new admin panel must be create for XOOPS 2.0.x and 2.x too

And yes, the admin side is being redesigned for later releases... so there is possibility that some of these ideas may be looked at

Don't forget to add a link to this thread at the XOOPS Sourceforge feature request page!
