Mautic Plugin - Database Driven Custom Navigation

Hey guys,

So we have built a plugin that allows you to add custom navigation items that load within frame or external pages.

My personal object was to be able to embed my commands which I use on the regular, but has a broader scope and flexibility to allow us to add any URL as an internal page or link to external resource.

Let me know your thoughts

This is brilliant! Thank you for sharing!!!

Hi - I’ve been unable to get this installed on 3.1.2. Tried all the usual steps (i.e. clearing cache). Any suggestions?

What is the plugin directory folder name?


  • Copy folder to the plugin directory
  • Rename the plugin directory folder to “CustomNavigationLinksBundle”
  • Make sure you have full read/write access to the folder (the plugin will be rebuilding config files in the directory)
  • Install Plugin
  • Clear cache
  • Navigate to plugin via admin menu /s/navlinks/1
  • Create new
  • Select Location (Admin/Primary)
  • Label of the link
  • URL of the link
  • Nav type (_blank, iframe)
  • Save and Close
  • Clear Cache (This will rebuild the config files and update everything)


I followed your instructions and it installed perfectly. Not sure where i went wrong the first time, but thank you for the help and the exciting plugin!

Just stumbled over it and it looks very handy.
Nice work. Thank you for that!
I’ll start playing around with it.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to work with 3.2. Plugin doesn’t show up to install.

It does, got it running on 10 setups for the latest

make sure you
*Rename the plugin directory folder to “CustomNavigationLinksBundle” *

then clear your cache, then ping new/install plugin command

Thank you. We’ve got it working. Successful.

Great plugin. Just have one question on how to get it to pull the icon ?

I have added an icon png to media/images/. given it all the correct permissions, am able to access the url from a browser, however plugin is not pulling in icon next to new menu item.

Any help would be appreciated.
