    I do not know where to put this at your forum (not acutally a bug):

    Few text errors:

    Module Extra menues:

    // webtrees – simpl_menu2 module EDIT TEXT to kiwitrees – extra menues module

    Simpl pages module:

    Renaming the module to page_module (or something else – should not be named simpl anymore since it is in the core code)

    Same goes for simpl_privacy and simpl_research

    WISHES:

    Adding some more help text for extra menu and page module (how to copy the modules and adding icons)
    The abillity to userdefined names and userdefined icon link for the modules (at least for pages, gallery and menu)

    By removing theme switch for visitors the ability for switching color dissapeared too. The theme is a color theme and
    visitors should be able to use the color palette

    SUGGESTION:
    A frame module. The ability to add a frame in kiwitrees. Something like having the predefined module and with the ability to add the link that appears in the frame. The size of the frame. Standard for language and access. And of course as mentioned before the ability to userdefined name and icon link. (I use this but made the code my self – with your help – and I know you hate frames)

    I’ll comment on others another time, but for iframes try adding this plugin to the CKEditor module:
    http://ckeditor.com/addon/iframe

    If you find it works or you find a better plugin I can include it in a future release.

    That one could be interesting ! Could be easier for users to add frames and just using page module for this! Good one Nigel 🙂

    But it is allready activated in pages 😛

    Module Extra menues:

    // webtrees – simpl_menu2 module EDIT TEXT to kiwitrees – extra menues module

    Sorry, I don’t understand this comment. “simpl_menu2” no longer exists. Where are you seeing the text “extra menues module”

    Simpl pages module:

    Renaming the module to page_module (or something else – should not be named simpl any more since it is in the core code)

    Same goes for simpl_privacy and simpl_research

    Yes, I understand the logic for that. I can and will do it for simpl_privacy.

    But for any module that stores any settings (simpl pages, simpl_research) it is not so easy. It is not a change of name, it is a completely new module. For simple_privacy it is easy. I can create the new module, and the upgrade process can delete the old folder where your server permits that. But then in some cases the old module will remain.

    But I should not delete modules like simpl pages, simpl_research in an upgrade because it will delete all the settings. So the alternative is a new module, new name, and ask you to re-do all your settings then delete the old module. Some will do that, some won’t. Those that don’t will end up in time with out-of-date, non-maintained modules causing bugs in their system.

    For major changes (like simpl_menu) I feel that is acceptable, but just for a change of module name it sounds like to much to ask everyone to do. But, if its everyone’s preference I’m happy to reconsider. The names mean very little to me.

    The ability to user defined names and user defined icon link for the modules (at least for pages, gallery and menu)

    I think that complex explanations about how to use these fairly complex modules that are best provided in the FAQ pages of this site, as part of the system documentation. If you would like to write something I would happily edit and then include it. Otherwise I will do it, but I don’t know when 🙁

    As for user (I hope you mean admin) defined icons, yes I agree that woulld be good. It is on my ‘to do’ list. I will add it to the Road Map too.

    Not sure about the “user defined names” though. What does that mean. In my mind I think it already exists, but I expect your meaning is different to mine.

    Module Extra menues:

    // webtrees – simpl_menu2 module EDIT TEXT to kiwitrees – extra menues module

    Sorry, I don’t understand this comment. “simpl_menu2″ no longer exists. Where are you seeing the text “extra menues module”

    Open module “Extra menues” and look in the top 😛

    Yes admin defined icons!

    We talked about using titel as name for the gallery. The same could be for pages and menu

    Only suggestion for making the system simple! It does not change how the modules works 🙂 But in first hand I guess you just can edit the “return name” in the module and in the future renaming it completely 🙂
