Hey there!

I wonder if is possible and, if so, if you guys can point me in the right direction.

I want to create an icon in the home page of AEM, next to sites, community, experience fragments, etc and link it to a page inside my code (let´s say I create a folder "test" where I put a file "test.html"), so, when an administrator / author click on that item, they go to that page, not loosing the top navigation menu, nor the feel and look of AEM.

 

About creating the icon, I have done it so far, through crx

problem, here, are two things:

1) if I click on the new icon, it downloads the file, instead of showing it

2) I guess, if I manage to get to the page, I am going to loose the top nav menu.

 

Any ideas on how can I do this?

 

Thanks!

Hi @gusboca , 

You can achieve this by Overlaying node , as it is good practice not to touch "libs" folder.Please find attached two screenshot. One is of Navigation & other is crxde nodes.

@gusboca I guess you are trying to build custom admin console page with your own data to be displayed. 

 

Please refer to excellent article by one of our AEM experts on this:
