How to Add top link after "My Wishlist". The link should be visible on activating my custom module.I'm using Magento 1.9. I added the following

   <reference name="top.links"> 
      <action method="addLink" translate="label title" module="mymodule"> 
           <label>My Link</label> 
           <url helper="mymodule/quote/history/"/> 
           <title>My Link</title> 
  • Where did you add this code? Feb 28, 2017 at 11:04
  • @JaiminSutariya app/design/frontend/base/default/layout/mymodule/mymodule.xml Feb 28, 2017 at 11:07
  • Make sure you added your code under <default> tag, because your code is correct and it should work. Also make sure your layout xml files is being called. Feb 28, 2017 at 11:12
  • yes @JaiminSutariya my code has <default> tag. Is there any other requirement other than clearing cache Feb 28, 2017 at 11:14
  • No, there is no other requirements, it will be better if you can add your config.xml and helper mymodule/quote/history code to the question. Feb 28, 2017 at 11:22

You can do this by (This is my complete module's layout file):

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
     <reference name="top.links">
            <action method="addLink" translate="label title">
                <label>Custom Home Link</label>
                <title>Custom Home Link</title>
  • I tried all these codes.. Still the links is not appearing in the front end.. :( Feb 28, 2017 at 11:19
  • @DEEPESHKUMARR Please clear your cache and make sure your layout file is being called this is tested code.

  • No it's not working. I cleared cache as well Feb 28, 2017 at 11:55
  • I added the same code in customer.xml file under theme modern. Then the link appeared.. Is it the proper way? Feb 28, 2017 at 12:11

Please add this local.xml or any other module xml over fronted layout folder.

        <!-- Mage_Customer -->
        <reference name="top.links">
            <action method="addLink" translate="label title" module="customer"><label>My Account</label><url helper="customer/getAccountUrl"/><title>My Account</title><prepare/><urlParams/><position>10</position></action>
