  • These two XML files look good, did you modify any other layout file? Maybe the module activation file in the app/etc/modules folder?

You have a typo on your Sd_menuadmin.xml on: </Sd_Menu>. It should be </Sd_Menuadmin> instead.

Also, you will have to modify your adminhtml.xml file. Remove the node <adminhtml> and make the <menu> node a child of the <config> node. Refresh your cache. That should work.

  • I was wrong when I copied the code, i have well </Sd_Menuadmin> and it's note this issue, thank you

  • Okay, if you're still seeing the simplexml_load_string error, you might have modified another XML file by accident. If you're not seeing the error but your new menu isn't showing, you have to modify your adminhtml.xml file. Remove the node <adminhtml> and make the <menu> node a child of the config node. Refresh your cache. That might work.
