  5. How to Create a Custom Menu Link

In QuickBox, you are able to add Custom Menu Links to the Navigation Panel. In order to do this, you must be comfortable with HTML coding and editing web files.

  1. Connect to your Server via SSH, FTP, SFTP, X2G0 or noVNC
  2. Navigate to /srv/quickbox/custom/
  3. In version 1.3.0 and above, you will see a file already created called custom.menu.php – This file will then be included in the bottom of the Navigation Panel. 
    1. If you are using a version below v2.3.8, we strongly recommend updating to the latest release to take advantage of this article.
  4. Edit that file
  5. At the bottom of the file, by default we have added a link to the QuickBox.IO Knowledge Base. You can add your custom menu links after this using the following sample code (this file may be blank and that is ok!);
<li class="usr-img-frame rounded-circle"><a href="https://quickbox.io/knowledge-base/" target="_blank"><img src="assets/img/favicon-16x16.png" class="mr-2 img-fluid rounded-circle" style="width:18px;height:18px;background-color:#171e27;"> <span>QuickBox.IO <br/><?php echo T('KB'); ?></span></a></li>

So if we wanted to link to the a custom subdomain for an application such as Ombi;

<li class="usr-img-frame rounded-circle"><a href="https://ombi.somedomain.com/" target="_blank"><img src="assets/img/brands/ombi.png" class="mr-2 img-fluid rounded-circle" style="width:18px;height:18px;background-color:#171e27;"> <span>Ombi <br/>@ ombi.somedomain.com</span></a></li>

Your new Custom Link would then look like this;

There is no limit as to how many links you can add to your navigation panel.
