    John Chapman's blog is great for this. Especially in this case where you want to keep the original links: sharepointjohn.com/… Commented Oct 17, 2013 at 13:49

I always have added custom links to the suite bar using a small jquery script on the page

On SharePoint 2013 you can do that using this code

<script type="text/javascript">
var suiteBar = $("#suiteBar").find(".ms-core-brandingText");
suite.html("<a href="www.google.com"> custum link </a>");   

If you are using Office 365 you can use this code

<script type="text/javascript">
var suiteBar = $("#suiteBrandingBox");
suite.html("<a href="www.google.com"> custum link </a>");   

Both codes here will change the sharepoint logo and add a custom link on it's place.

    This is a nice workaround, but not a very good solution. For example, to change the SharePoint logo permanently no more than two-three rows of Powershell is needed. This will improve performance on every page load Commented Oct 17, 2013 at 13:48

    Robert you are right but for Office 365 you can't run the powershell Commented Oct 22, 2013 at 10:45

    True, but the question is targeted for SharePoint Enterprise Commented Oct 22, 2013 at 11:26

There is an easy step no need to use powershell or visual studio follow these steps :

  • Be sure that you have proper permission to edit share point

  • Use share point designer to edit share point file

  • go into master pages from left panel "INSIDE SHAREPOINT DESIGNER"

  • right click on seattle.master then click on Edit file in Advance Mode "GET BACKUP IF YOU ARE NOT EXPERT IN SHAREPOINT DESIGNER"

  • Find id="DeltaSuiteLinks" then paste below code exactly right after
    <SharePoint:AjaxDelta runat="server" id="DeltaSuiteLinks"
    BlockElement="true" CssClass="ms-core-deltaSuiteLinks">
    This Tag.


<span id="intranet" class="ms-core-suiteLink">
    <a class="ms-core-suiteLink-a" href="http://YOURLINKADDRESS">
      <asp:Label ID="intranet" runat="server" Text="Intranet"></asp:Label>

Note : Remember If you Want to have more Links you should Copy and paste last 5 lines of code "Remember to change span id="intranet" and Label ID"Intranet" in each link"


The following code it's a sample that can be used to add html (or even .js references) on the suite bar on a web app scope.

$wa = Get-SPWebApplication [WebAppUrl]
$wa.SuiteBarBrandingElementHtml = "<div class='ms-core-brandingText'>SharePoint (custom html)</div>"
