Custom Admin Entry
  • Hi,

    I try to create an custom entry within the Admin-Navigation.
    The common way is creating a model and adding it to the config - but is there any way to simply create an navigation point within the admin menu that is not binded to a table and for Example simply performs a task such as echoing "Test" in the content area of the administration Area?

    Best Regards,

  • Yes. You can overwrite the navigation in the by overriding the 'nav' config in MY_fuel.php. The default navigation (found in the fuel/modules/fuel/config/fuel.php which will be overwritten by MY_fuel.php) is the following:

    // Site... Dashboard will always be there
    $config['nav']['site'] = array(
    'dashboard' => lang('module_dashboard'),
    'pages' => lang('module_pages'),
    'blocks' => lang('module_blocks'),
    'navigation' => lang('module_navigation'),
    'tags' => lang('module_tags'),
    'categories' => lang('module_categories'),
    'assets' => lang('module_assets'),
    'sitevariables' => lang('module_sitevariables')

    // My modules... if set to empty array, then it will automatically include all in MY_fuel_modules.php
    $config['nav']['modules'] = array();

    // Tools
    $config['nav']['tools'] = array();

    // Manage
    $config['nav']['manage'] = array(
    'users' => lang('module_users'),
    'permissions' => lang('module_permissions'),
    'manage/cache' => lang('module_manage_cache'),
    'logs' => lang('module_manage_activity'),
    'settings' => lang('module_manage_settings'),

    Additionally, there is the following config parameter you may want to set to FALSE in your MY_fuel.php file to have more control of the ordering:

    // Will auto arrange the navigation into the normal order
    $config['nav_auto_arrange'] = TRUE;

Howdy, Stranger!
