Hi Guys I have this problem:
I want to deploy a custom application page to the SharePoint Central Administration. I found these 2 links: http://kamilmka.wordpress.com/2012/04/30/how-to-deploy-a-application-page-to-central-administration/ and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff798467.aspx and did everything they said.
No problems occured during deployment or activation, however the link to the page does not show in the Central Administration.
I checked and found out that the page is deployed to the
\14\TEMPLATE\ADMIN\ReminderConfiguration folder as it should, but the custom action does not appear to work. Here is the xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"> <CustomAction Description="Here you can change the xml of the timer job." Id="ReminderTimerConfigurationLink" Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Monitoring" Sequence="1000" GroupId="TimerJobs" Title="Reminder Timer Configuration"> <UrlAction Url="_admin/ReminderConfiguration/ReminderConfiguration.aspx" /> </CustomAction> </Elements>
All the names appear to be correct.
I tried to create my own Custom Action Group and place the Links there, still nothing worked. The feature activates with no problems and the logs show no errors as well.
