Greetings,

I am not excatly sure what you are talking about so if I misunderstood, then just ignore me lol.

However, I do know that you can edit and change around the summary page in your admin zone. For example, you can remove and add blocks and such  things like links and what not using the block layout editor to edit your admin zone.

I discussed that here…
View topic: Did ya know, you can customize the admin zone!? - ocPortal

If that is not what you are aiming for, then my appologies.

Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!

Not exactly. I am sort of creating an addon for ocp which i build for my website. But as i think that there might be some interest for it in public i wanted to desing it as standard conform as possible - including a administrative section in the control panel (like you clik on Styles - THemes to get to that section i wanted to create something similar for me.)

You need to create a systems/do_next_menus hook.

Our ocdeadpeople addon has one, if you want an example. Just download the tar and look inside it.
