I am trying to add a custom action to the Welcome menu, right below the Sign Out button. Here are the steps I followed:
1) Created an Empty element called CustomActions and edited the Elements.xml as below:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"> <CustomAction Id="MyCustomAction" Description="This is my custom action." Title="Open Application Page" GroupId="SiteActions" Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.StandardMenu" Sequence="10"> <UrlAction Url="~site/_layouts/SPCustomAction/MyAppPage.aspx"/> </CustomAction> </Elements>
2) Created a feature with scope Site, and added this item to the feature.
Am I missing something? I also tried creating a SPUserCustomAction programmatically on the FeatureActivated, but it's not showing up either.
