Adding Menu Item


I’d like to be able to add a menu item pointing to an External URL in the “Other” menu of FreePBX 2.10.

Is this possible?



The menu items in FreePBX are populated automatically by the modules that are installed and enabled in the configuration database. Without hacking things apart the only way I’m aware of to do what you’re after is to create a new very basic module, and have the module’s core page do a redirect (or have a link that does a redirect when you click on it). If you had multiple external URLs it might make sense to have your module page have all of the external URLs on it. I haven’t dug through the menu generation code in a while, so maybe there’s another way that a FreePBX dev can point out…

If you are using FreePBX 2.10 check out freepbx_menu.conf.template. This will allow you to customize the menus.
