Custom side menu items

edited May 3 in Feature Requests

We should have a way to add a custom side menu items using different, built in templates.

For example, adding a menu item for "Monsters" that will act like the items page, or a custom "Quests" menu item that will act like the Adventure Log one.

    Thanks for posting this request!

    If we see some more of the community support this request, then we can redirect some dev time to it and get a beta version together for some of y'all to test out.

    I know some of the users have been using the custom css and html directly in their pages to simulate this, but that solution requires every page to have the custom html, and so it can be a headache if you want to go add or remove a menu item because you have to edit every page.

    Indeed. I miss the Items functionality, if for no other reason than I liked the way that things were linked and displayed. Being able to designate particular menu items that give that functionality would be great for everything from Planar Cartography to Sects and Factions!

    @DungeonMasterLoki, Items is still available, it's just turned off by default in a campaign.

    Go into the "Settings" on your campaign.

    Click on the "Advanced" tab.

    Check the "Show Items Section (Not Recommended)" checkbox.

    Click Save.

    And Items will show up in your side menu.

    There is a beta version of Custom Navigation now available.  It's simply a wholesale replacement of the default navigation with whatever HTML you enter.  If anyone is interested in trying out this beta feature, let me know and I'll add you to the beta.
