Creating a new Module for Admin interface

Add New Icon to Joomla Control Panel

This was used to add a new icon to the quick icons in the Joomla Control Panel


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<name>Quick Icons for Thing</name>
<author>Joomla Project Modified by Bectin Corporation</author>
<copyright>This template is released under the GNU/GPL License</copyright>
<description>Replaces default Quick Icon set to include Jevents Export Link</description>
<filename module="mod_quickicon_thing">mod_quickicon_thing.php</filename>
<language tag="en-GB">en-GB.mod_quickicon_thing.ini</language>

Then all of the files are put in a sub-directory mod_quickicon_thing

If everything is not done correctly you will get any of the following error messages:

JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find XML setup file (this comes from a V1.5 extension in J1.6/7/2.5)

JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find Joomla XML setup file

The following error message came when I didn't have the modeule=”” paramter in the filename.

Module Install: No module file specified 
Error installing module
