Plugins and Module don't have their own Admin Menu items. In the back-end via "Menus > Manage" you can create new Admin Menu items but only to Component Views.

There's an option to create Menu Items of Menu Item Type "System Links > URL" but you cannot use that to trigger your Modules or Plugins.

  • In "wordpress cms" I can add item to admin menu in php code of "plugin for wordpress".

  • In Joomla you can do it with core Joomla and without plugins: using the admin menu like I described, or even with a template override.
