The Quick Navigation provides a category quick selection with a filter field and lists of the last edited articles and media (last modified).

In live filter you can filter by categories, authors or yrewrite domains. For example, if one enters a domain, a tree of the respective domain is quickly displayed.

Favorite categories can be maintained individually by the editors in the AddOn settings. The favorites list only appears when favorites have been selected. New articles can be created directly via the (+) symbol next to the category.

Quick Navigation incorporates functions of other AddOns as well, provided they have been installed and activated. Current: YForm, Watson

The Quick Navigation is accessible via the access key m.

Admins get all functions. For editors the availability of the functions can be defined by role permissions. It can also be configured that an editor can also track the changes of other users.


  1. install via installer or unzip file in AddOn folder, the folder must be named "quick_navigation". Install and activate the AddOn.
  2. configure rights for roles
