I cant see any menu codes here. So provide us with adminhtml.xml if any.

However I will give you my random thoughts here. Your admin route is setup like this.

 <routers>
    <pets>
        <use>admin</use>
        <args>
            <module>Ffriends_Pets</module>
            <frontName>pets</frontName>
        </args>
    </pets>
</routers>

What this do is setuping an admin router for your module. It has no problem as of now. But this will leads all of your module's url (admin side) looks like this

  www.domain.com/pets/controller/method

But if you have a look on all of admin urls, it follows this convention

  www.domain.com/admin/controller/method

If you need the same effect, then you need to change your admin router setup like this.

<admin>
    <routers>
        <adminhtml>
            <args>
                <modules>
                    <ffriends_pets before="Mage_Adminhtml">Ffriends_Pets_Adminhtml</ffriends_pets >
                </modules>
            </args>
        </adminhtml>
    </routers>
</admin>

Second point comes in layout xml file. As per your current configuration, your layout xml file looks good. However if you adopt the method that I put forward, then there is slight change comes in layout xml file. Layout handle that you are currently using pets_adminhtml_pets_index will change to adminhtml_pets_index. This is because instead of pets router configuration now we are using adminhtml router configuration which is defined inside the core module Mage_Adminhtml.


Now as per the layout xml and configuration, there should be a controller present in your module. It would be

File : app/code/local/Ffriends/Pets/controllers/Adminhtml/PetsController.php

<?php
class Ffriends_Pets_Adminhtml_PetsController extends Mage_Adminhtml_Controller_Action
{
     public function indexAction()
     {
         $this->loadLayout();
         $this->renderLayout();
     }
}

Without this controller, nothing is going to show in admin side.

Side Note :- In order to have a custom menu, you need additional configurations. It will be normally do in adminhtml.xml file. There are plenty of tutorials available outside for set uping a menu. So google it.

  • thank you programmer_rkt.I will check and have study some more regarding this. – Mujahidh Nov 19 '14 at 6:10

  • the problem is I cannot publish it here. I am sure you are not goying to annoy me. But in future someone will do. Since it is public! – Rajeev K Tomy Nov 19 '14 at 6:17
