Joomla Plugin: AdminBar Docker

Published › October 12, 2011 0 Comments


AdminBar Docker is an admin plugin that adds a dock/undock option to the Administrator.

With sites with loads of articles or with certain components you get long pages in your administrator. You often have to scroll up and down the page a lot. And when you want to save something or enter the main menu, you have to scroll all the way back to the top of the page.

AdminBar Docker offers a solution for this. With one click on a little icon (top-right of your screen) you can undock the menu and the toolbar. Now they float over your page at the top of the screen… even if you are at the bottom of the page.

Now you have the menu and the action buttons (save, apply, cancel, etc) in view in a super quick and handy way.

AdminBar Docker also gives you quickbuttons to jump to the top or bottom of the page.


AdminBar Docker is a Joomla extension compatible with Joomla 1.5.
The extension consists of a system plugin


AdminBar Docker will only work correctly if your setup meets these requirements:

  • Up-to-date version of Joomla!
  • PHP 5.3+
    => if your server uses a php version lower than 5.3, ask your host to upgrade it for you!
  • PHP mbstring (Multibyte String) functions should be enabled
  • MySQL 5+

I can not provide support for setups that do not meet the above requirements. The core Joomla files should of course not be altered in any way.


The easiest way to install/update is via the NoNumber! Extension Manager.

If you have problems installing AdminBar Docker, please try the manual installation process as described here:

If that fails too, you can try the manual installation process as described in the INSTALL.txt in the package (currently only for Joomla 1.5 setups).
