Ambox notice.png The Custom Menu Hook Mod replaces the Custom Drop Down Menu mod and the Site Menu Mod in TNG V10, where the Custom Menu Hook has been redesigned to use the syntax of the Custom Drop Down Menu

Note that this mod is only needed if you want to track your changes to customconfig.php with the Mod Manager, otherwise a mod is not required. See Custom Menu Hook on the syntax requirements for defining custom menu entries including additions to the TNG Find, Media, and Info pull down menus.

See the Converting Custom Menu Hook instructions on how to convert your previous Site Menu Mod
Custom Drop Down Menu mod users should only need to copy the changes to customconfig.php and cust_text.php from their previous mod.

Replaces the Custom Drop Down Menu and Site Menu Mod in TNG V10
This mod is an example only. See Custom Menu Hook for the changes you need to use the Custom Menu Hook


Purpose of the mod

This mod was developed to provide an example on how to create your own Custom Menu for TNG V10 if you want to use the Mod Manager to control all your changes to TNG. It is not strictly speaking required, since all changes for the Custom Menu Hook can be done by adding variables to the customconfig.php and you cust_text.php files,

I provided the Converting Custom Menu Hook instructions on how I converted my previous Site Menu Mod to this new mod.


Mod Developer is Ken Roy

Custom Text

The following text example is provided for the languages/English/cust_text.php and languages/English-UTF8/cust_text.php files
