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

manifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<extension
type="module"
version="1.7"
client="administrator"
method="update">
<name>Quick Icons for Thing</name>

<version>1.0</version>
<description>Replaces default Quick Icon set to include Jevents Export Link</description>
<files>
<filename module="mod_quickicon_thing">mod_quickicon_thing.php</filename>
<filename>helper.php</filename>
<filename>index.html</filename>
<filename>mod_quickicon_thing.xml</filename>
<folder>tmpl</folder>
</files>
<languages>
<language tag="en-GB">en-GB.mod_quickicon_thing.ini</language>
</languages>
</extension>

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
