Front-end Pages Loaded Into Admin Area (AKA Faux Admin Apps)

  • Admin Panel
It would be a good (and probably a simple) intermediate step towards “Admin Apps” if we could load external web pages and/or the site’s own front-end pages into a frame within the Admin interface.

We could then customise the Admin menu to link to an external page but specify it to load into the admin frame.

I’m not suggesting that this page can interact with the admin or call data from it, but just being able to load custom pages or sites within the context of the admin could be very useful. ie:

- Client Training materials
- Front-end “Admin” functionality
- External site references and tools (to help the client create content for example)
