In BE 2.5 to add links to the Admin menu all you do is add them to the


and then it puts it in the Admin menu and the Admin widget.

Doing that now in BE 2.9 all it does is add it to the Admin widget but not the admin menu.

So I am guessing I have to hard code it somewhere the problem is where?

I looked at all of the files in the /admin folder but could not figure out where to add it :)

So would like to know what file or files needed to be coded for the link to show up in Main menu of admin panel.

Hi kbdavis, you need to modify \BlogEngine.NET\admin\views\shared_nav.html for first level menu item
in particular the section under <ul class="nav navbar-nav">...</ul> you have to add <li><a ...>your link</a></li> for each custom links.

Have a nice day!
