I'm trying to create a third button that sits beside the "i like it" and "tags & notes" buttons. So far I have managed to add my button on the ListItem and Documents ribbon tabs:

<CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.ListItem.TagsAndNotes.Controls._children">


<CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.Documents.TagsAndNotes.Controls._children">

But I can't find the right location to add it to the controls on the "Browse" tab. How can I add my button there?

  • How about adding your button the the master page? Commented Oct 1, 2013 at 10:37
  • I'd like to do this as close to best practices as possible, plus editing the master page is in this case no option :(

In case of SharePoint 2010, you can edit your master page with Designer. Find the following node:

<td class="s4-socialdata-notif">
 <SharePoint:DelegateControl ControlId="GlobalSiteLink3" Scope="Farm" runat="server"/>                                      

Then add another td before or after this one.

For instance, this is what I did withing 30 seconds using this technique:

New button


As Hinek pointed out, the best way to do it, is by adding a custom control to the page using a delegate control for the ControlID: GlobalSiteLink3. So, check this link as an example

  • Thanks, I will not edit the master page, but you showed me, the area is a DelegateControl, so I will try to add a new control to it.

  • Yes, exactly. Delegate control is the best way to go here. I've just shown the easiest way. Commented Oct 1, 2013 at 11:33
