Drupal 6 drupal 7 admin_menu project Project README File

This content is from the Drupal 6 drupal 7 admin_menu project project README file:

 -- SUMMARY --
 The Administration menu module displays the entire administrative menu tree (and
 most local tasks) in a drop-down menu, providing administrators one- or
 two-click access to most pages.  Other modules may also add menu links to the
 menu using hook_admin_menu_output_alter().
 For a full description of the module, visit the project page:
 To submit bug reports and feature suggestions, or to track changes:
 * Install as usual, see http://drupal.org/node/70151 for further information.
 * You likely want to disable Toolbar module, since its output clashes with
   Administration menu.
 * Configure user permissions in Administration  People  Permissions 
   admin_menu module:
   - access administration menu
     Users in roles with the "Access administration menu" permission will see
     the administration menu at the top of each page.
   - display drupal links
     Users in roles with the "Display drupal links" permission will receive
     links to drupal.org issue queues for all enabled contributed modules. The
     issue queue links appear under the administration menu icon.
   Note that the menu items displayed in the administration menu depend on the
   actual permissions of the viewing user. For example, the "People" menu item
   is not displayed to a user who is not a member of a role with the "Administer
   users" permission.
 * Customize the menu settings in Administration  Configuration and modules 
   Administration  Administration menu.
 * To prevent administrative menu items from appearing twice, you may hide the
   "Management" menu block.
 * To override the default administration menu icon, you may:
   1) Disable it via CSS in your theme:
      body #admin-menu-icon { display: none; }
   2) Alter the image by overriding the theme function:
      Copy the entire theme_admin_menu_icon() function into your template.php,
      rename it to phptemplate_admin_menu_icon() or THEMENAME_admin_menu_icon(),
      and customize the output according to your needs.
   Remember that the output of the administration menu is cached. To see changes
   from your theme override function, you must clear your site cache (via
   the "Flush all caches" link on the menu).
 * To override the font size, add the following line to your theme's stylesheet:
   body #admin-menu { font-size: 10px; }
 * If the menu does not display, check the following:
   - Are the "access administration menu" and "access administration pages"
     permissions enabled for the appropriate roles?
   - Does html.tpl.php of your theme output the $page_bottom variable?
 * If the menu is rendered behind a Flash movie object, add this property to your
   Flash object(s):
   <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
   See http://drupal.org/node/195386 for further information.
 -- FAQ --
 Q: When the administration menu module is enabled, blank space is added to the
    bottom of my theme. Why?
 A: This is caused by a long list of links to module issue queues at Drupal.org.
    Use Administer >> User management >> Permissions to disable the "display
    drupal links" permission for all appropriate roles. Note that since UID 1
    automatically receives all permissions, the list of issue queue links cannot
    be disabled for UID 1.
 Q: After upgrading to 6.x-1.x, the menu disappeared. Why?
 A: You may need to regenerate your menu. Visit
    http://example.com/admin/build/modules to regenerate your menu (substitute
    your site name for example.com).
 Q: Can I configure the administration menu module to display another menu (like
    the Navigation menu, for instance)?
 A: No. As the name implies, administration menu module is for administrative
    menu links only. However, you can copy and paste the contents of
    admin_menu.css into your theme's stylesheet and replace #admin-menu with any
    other menu block id (#block-menu-1, for example).
 Q: Sometimes, the user counter displays a lot of anonymous users, but no spike
    of users or requests appear in Google Analytics or other tracking tools.
 A: If your site was concurrently spidered by search-engine robots, it may have
    a significant number of anonymous users for a short time. Most web tracking
    tools like Google Analytics automatically filter out these requests.
 Q: I enabled "Aggregate and compress CSS files", but admin_menu.css is still
    there. Is this normal?
 A: Yes, this is the intended behavior. the administration menu module only loads
    its stylesheet as needed (i.e., on page requests by logged-on, administrative
 Q: Why are sub-menus not visible in Opera?
 A: In the Opera browser preferences under "web pages" there is an option to fit
    to width. By disabling this option, sub-menus in the administration menu
    should appear.
 Q: How can the administration menu be hidden on certain pages?
 A: You can suppress it by simply calling the following function in PHP:
      module_invoke('admin_menu', 'suppress');
    However, this needs to happen as early as possible in the page request, so
    placing it in the theming layer (resp. a page template file) is too late.
    Ideally, the function is called in hook_init() in a custom module.  If you do
    not have a custom module, placing it into some conditional code at the top of
    template.php may work out, too.
