I have some custom module, on activating this module I want to show a "Custom Module Link" as a top link. Please refer the snapshot below.

How can I achieve this? This link should redirect to one of the Customer account navigation link.

Try this

    <reference name="top.links">
        <action method="addLink" translate="label title"><label>Custom</label><url>YOUR_URL_KEY</url><title>Custom</title><prepare/><urlParams/><position>10</position></action>

Top-links are generaly managed in Magento through layout.xml files. To add a link to top links, you need to add an xml code to layout files.

Please refere to this http://excellencemagentoblog.com/blog/2011/09/07/magento-add-top-links-in-magento/


Please put this code under <reference name="top.links"> and before closing tag </reference> in your local.xml

<action method="addLink" translate="label title">
    <label>Your label module</label>
    <url>your custom url</url>
    <title>Your title module</title>
  • I added like this.. But Not working <default><reference name="top.links"><action method="addLink" translate="label title"><label>Custom</label><url>MyModule/customBlock/custom‌​File/</url><title>Cu‌​stom</title><prepare>true<prepare‌​/><urlParams/><posit‌​ion>2</position></a‌​ction></reference></‌​default> <customer_account> <reference name="customer_account_navigation"><action method="addLink" translate="label" module="MyModule"> <name>MyModule_customBlock_customFile</name> <path>MyModule/customBlock/customFile/</path> <label>Custom</label> </action> </reference> </customer_account> Feb 28, 2017 at 9:45
