With this upgrade came a refresh of the Joomla Control Panel. Keep reading for a guide on the new changes to this tool!

New Features

Joomla 4’s new dashboard has quick access icon modules such as Site, System, Notifications, Last Actions, and more. These modules are customizable so you can control the quick access icons that you want to display on your dashboard and make the organization of your dashboard fit your needs.

  • Users: User manager and user groups, access levels, and others
