Adding a custom button the the Edit Toolbar in 5.5.1

Permalink
I've been struggling to try and get a custom button (a link to a Single Page of Training Videos for editors) added to the Edit Toolbar in C5 v5.5.1... and everything I've tried has failed.

I gave a shot using the Interface helper. No luck.

Then I tried the jQuery route to append an "<li>" to the "#ccm-main-nav" list, and that didn't work.

Has anyone successfully done this that could provide some pointers?

Thanks!

Check out the ProEvents plugin. Not sure how they do it, but they do.

@kellyelton,

Thanks! This blog post looks like it's perfect!

I ended up doing something else for the site I was working on... but now that I have this, I may go back and "improve" it for them! ;D

Really appreciate the pointers!

Does anyone know how to do this with a link to another page? I want to make a package that will add an 'edit in composer' button for pages that support it. Seems like all the posts I find about it are for making a dialog, that's not what I want to do, I just want to link to the composer dashboard page.

There are two ways to do this

1.http://www.codeblog.ch/2012/04/concrete5-custom-toolbar-button/... this will not mess with the core of C5 which can be tricky

2. navigate to core concrete/tools/page_controls_menu.js
scroll down until you get to this code

<?php  if ($dh->canRead()) { ?>
   menuHTML += '<li><a class="ccm-icon-dashboard ccm-menu-icon" id="ccm-nav-dashboard<?php  if ($md->isMobile()) { ?>-mobile<?php  } ?>" href="<?php echo View::url('/dashboard')?>"><?php echo t('Dashboard')?></a></li>';
<?php  } ?>
menuHTML += '<li id="ccm-nav-intelligent-search-wrapper"><input type="search" placeholder="<?php echo t('Intelligent Search')?>" id="ccm-nav-intelligent-search" tabindex="1" /></li>';
menuHTML += '<li><a id="ccm-nav-sign-out" class="ccm-icon-sign-out ccm-menu-icon" href="<?php echo View::url('/login', 'logout')?>"><?php echo t('Sign Out')?></a></li>';
menuHTML += '</ul>';


copy and paste
menuHTML += '<li><a id="ccm-nav-sign-out" class="ccm-icon-sign-out ccm-menu-icon" href="<?php echo View::url('/login', 'logout')?>"><?php echo t('Sign Out')?></a></li>';


above the line that echoes <?php echo t('Intelligent Search')?>

and inside
('/login', 'logout')
place your url path to that page

As a note on the 2nd option it is best to not edit any of the core system files. I recommend that anyone going to do the 2nd option simply copy the concrete/tools/page_controls_menu.js and then paste it into the "tools" folder outside of the core and then edit that file instead.

Here is my example of creating a help button next to the "edit" button on the toolbar.

menuHTML += '<li><a id="ccm-nav-edit" class="ccm-menu-icon" style="background-position:-13px -2362px !important;" href="<?php echo View::url('/index.php?cID=212')?>"><?php echo t('Help')?></a></li>';


Just copy the code above and place it in your file like I have in the example below:

menuHTML += '<li <?php  if ($c->isEditMode()) { ?>class="ccm-nav-edit-mode-active"<?php  } ?>><a class="ccm-icon-edit ccm-menu-icon" id="ccm-nav-edit" href="<?php  if (!$c->isEditMode()) { ?><?php echo DIR_REL?>/<?php echo DISPATCHER_FILENAME?>?cID=<?php echo $c->getCollectionID()?>&ctask=check-out<?php echo $token?><?php  } else { ?>javascript:void(0);<?php  } ?>" <?php  if (!$c->isEditMode()) { ?> onclick="$(\'#ccm-edit-overlay\').hide()" <?php  } ?>><?php  if ($c->isEditMode()) { ?><?php echo t('Editing')?><?php  } else { ?><?php echo t('Edit')?><?php  } ?></a></li>';
    menuHTML += '<li><a id="ccm-nav-edit" class="ccm-menu-icon" style="background-position:-13px -2362px !important;" href="<?php echo View::url('/index.php?cID=212')?>"><?php echo t('Help')?></a></li>';
   <?php 
   $items = $ihm->getPageHeaderMenuItems('left');
   foreach($items as $ih) {
      $cnt = $ih->getController(); 
      if ($cnt->displayItem()) {
      ?>
         menuHTML += '<li><?php echo $cnt->getMenuLinkHTML()?></li>';
      <?php 
      }
   }
} ?>
