How to reconfigure 'Dashboard' button to appear on top menu row?

Asked by Hiteshbhai on 2012-12-03

Hi,
  As per our requirement, we want to rename the Dashboard button and put it on first row of the menu instead of second row and also want to rename it.

 We couldn't find anything within the Manage Menu to do that.

  We also tried hiding the default Dashboard menu item from all and creating alias menu but that also doesn't allow to create alias menu item for Dashboard.

 Similarly, we also want to rename the 'Front Page' menu item and put it on first row of menus.

 Please guide us to accomplish it.

thanks,
Hitesh

At first glance I think your best shot would be creating your own theme, based on the default "cloud".

Can you create a visual mock up of what you want to achieve?

Currently, they are two rows of menu items in phpdevshell,
   in Top row we can create the menu we want for our application and in second row we get
   Front page and Dashboard.

    We want to eliminate second row of menu item (i.e Front Page and Dashboard) and we want to create our own menu item call "Settings" in Top row which will do exactly what "Dashboard" menu item doing.

Just duplicate the default theme (cloud), change the config, install it and modify the theme exactly as you wish. The menu configuration is stored in print_r($this->navigation->navigation) so you can do whatever you want. If it is static menus you can add them as you please.

Note that PHPDevShell V3.5.0 (released soonish) uses a brand new menu system when is much more effective.

Can you help with this problem?
