If an extension that contains a backend menu has been installed or was removed, the module link doesn't show up in the left menu frame. It's necessarry to reload manually to get the new module visible.

The extension manager could trigger an automatic reload if a module was installed or removed.

Please have a look at the attached file 0004886.patch and test its functionality.

Works fine here on TYPO3 4.1beta3*PHP5*FF*OS X 10.4.8 !
What really annoys me is the logout/login procedure to awake the modules functionality. But this is another story.

Thanks Peter for testing the patch. I had to do some small changes to the patch. For the case, requirements of an extension didn't match the restart process lead to an endless loop.
This is fixed in 0004886_2.patch.

~12059: You can also just reload the whole BE frameset, see also comments to #15084


Updated by Oliver Hader over 14 years ago

Karsten, thanks for the hint! A link which offers to reload the whole backend and that appears only when an extension containing modules was installed, is simple and helpful. The attached new file (0004886_3.patch) implements this feature...
