Custom tab in Pages Bar


If you have visited link given in my last post on CE Basics you might have seen Pages Bar feature. If not let me paste that stuff for you 🙂

The Pages Bar

Screenshot of the pages bar

In the bottom of the content editor is the pages bar. This bar contains buttons that shift between the content editor, the media library and the workbox.

Now, We wanted to add few more tabs in the bottom like MediaLibrary/Files etc. in it. Do you know how to do it? No? Would you like to know then read below section:


1. Open core database.

2. Locate “/sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Applications”

3. Duplicate any of already existing item and change newly copied item’s Source field to something like below:

/sitecore/shell/Applications/Content Manager/Default.aspx?ro=/sitecore/media library/Files&he=Files

Just a note : ro is the basic guy which you should look at. Here you can give any path which you would like to open!

4. And that’s it!
