I am looking for a way to show a referenced node into the primary tabs menu.

I created a content type "fact box" that is referenced to an article. Now i like to have the content type title of the fact box node in the primary tabs menu.

I tested the Quicktabs Module and References Tabs, but they don`t use the primary tabs menu.

What`s the right way to reference a node into the primary tabs menu?

Is this for Drupal 7?

If so you can create a custom module using hook_menu_local_tasks_alter, maybe in the hook get the arg for the nid for the current page. Then do a node load on the current pages nid to check a reference is set, then from this reference field which will contain the nid... do another node load to get its title. Finally the title local menu tab.
