Ability to create custom cPanel application links

Zomex shared this idea 1 year ago
Under Consideration

Hello,

This is just a quick idea, it would be great if there was the option to create custom links in cPanel, the option to reference a icon URL, add a link title and URL.

This could be implemented under setup > application links > configure cPanel

It would be easy to implement but very powerful for WHMCS users as it would allow us to create more focused/branded links especially useful for those of us with our main website outside of WHMCS.

Regards,

Jack

To extend this further we need the ability to remove and/or orverride some of the links. Some of us do not want all of those.

Yeah that would be especially helpful so we could add our custom Status page (ie from statuspage.io) or for customers who use a 3rd party support system etc.

text Links are not translatable... we can't use it in a professional way

Just found this morning that all links are not correct, we disable Application Links

Hi,

Thanks for suggesting this idea and for your votes so far.

WHMCS controls the Billing & Invoicing link group on the cPanel homepage, so I would be interested to know what kind of links you would like to add there?

Why is it preferential for you to make this change to the cPanel interface via WHMCS vs. doing it using the customisation resources available in cPanel directly?

In no way, you can do that easily in cPanel ! Moreover, we talk of existing things in cPanel, and thus for WHMCS to be able to add any link.

Before that, existing links must be translatable, and customizable..., see other feature request

Correct.

@John, simple example... Open Ticket link, we don't use the WHMCS ticket system. Same for news and announcements, download resources, knowledge base, etc. Also, we don't necessarily want all these links here either. We could remove them i guess via cPanel but then were assuming that cPanel will be able to remove them after WHMCS adds them and not before.

Hi Sean,

Thanks for responding to my questions. The individual Application links added to cPanel by WHMCS Can be switched off individually, so it's entirely possible to remove the News, Announcements, Download, Knowledgebase etc. links alredy: http://docs.whmcs.com/Application_Links#Configuring_Application_Links

Specifically I would like an Application Link that goes to my software installer. #1 support question we get is "how do I install wordpress" and it would be wonderful if "Install Software" was right there in the application links. A custom App Link that passes the necessary parameters to cPanel would be ideal.

Hi Will,

This is something which would be configured in cPanel directly: https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/SDK/Tutorial+-+Add+a+Link+to+the+cPanel+Interface

But it's not external is an internal cPanel item already. I just want to add it to WHMCS like the others.
