Small but nice usability features for Admin Panel
« on: October 17, 2013, 05:17:26 PM »
These improvements would be appreciated by all AbanteCart admin users:

- ability to modify Product names and Category names quickly right at the Catalog -> Products and Categories screens  (like it's already possible in the control panel for many other objects maybe thanks to jGrid)

- additional products page navigation frame (Page 1 of 2    .. View 1 - 20 of 133) on Catalog -> Products screen. It is currently only present at bottom,
and having the second one at the top of the screen would help turn the page without having to scroll down the products' list every time (btw, there are only 2 options for viewing such lists: 20 and All.  It is also worth adding 10 and 40 as options for the number of products to be shown at a page.)

- clicking on product image thumbs(cameras) in the product list at Catalog -> Products screen would bring up the Resource Library manager instantly, and there's no need no more to go through product Edit->Media->images path only to add or change product image.

- a button to clone a (sub)Category -- including all of its underlying (if any) Sub-categories  ( without cloning products, of course! )
at the Catalog -> Categories screen.  This is similar to the Cloning button that is already present at Catalog -> Products screen.

- the 'Products Count' at Catalog -> Categories screen has to show the real count including all products of child sub-categories down the tree;
otherwise, when you are having sub-categories, it will always show you a zero count, which is of little use for admin..

Thank you for the cool cart !
