I'm trying to add a sub-menu under administration, for example:


  • ......
  • Content
  • Structure
  • ......
  • My test (sub menu under administration)
    • My view 1 (a view that I created)
    • My view 2 (another view that I created)

Under structure-> menu, I see that I can create a new menu and add link to existing menues, but I cannot understand how can I add a sub menu to Management.
Note: I'm using Drupal 7.

Edit: I added a link (My test) under management (Like in @Clive's answer) with path admin/test under My Test I created another link with path admin/test/form-view-test-3 and also gave that path to the view.

enter image description here

When I click on My menu I what to see a list of subcategories, in my case Some view. Instead Test 3 (The View) appears as overlay tab and I see the list of admin menus.

Click on my test

  • Are you trying to add another menu as Sub Menu in Management Menu ?

1 Answer 1

  1. Go to admin/structure/menu/manage/management; you'll see all the links currently in the menu.
  2. Click "Add link"
  3. Fill in the title, path and any other relevant data.
  4. Click "Save"
  5. Re-order the menu items if necessary
  6. Repeat the process for as many links as you need to place under the new top-level item you just created.
  7. If you're using the Admin Menu module, you might need to flush caches before changes take effect (but you might not).
  • I did what you wrote above, but it still doesn't work for me. Please see the edit.

    To address your edit: you'll need to create the root path programatically using hook_menu(). The page callback will be system_admin_menu_block. See system_menu() for several examples
