    Hi Telerik team,
    I am using the 3.5 SP1Standard Edition of Sitefinity.
    I would like to customize the MainMenu for the Admin console like adding link to Blogs directly between Pages and Modules and change the name from 'Modules' to something else. I tried to dig into the Admin.Master and found that RadTabStrip is using the MainMenuDataSource as the DataSource to display the Menu and I understand that I need to make the changes to the MainMenuDataSource. How would I add my changes to that ? It's in the assembly.
    My intention is I should be able to add news links, update the Text fields of existing links.
    Is there a way to implement what I am trying to here ?

    Any comments or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Lisa Martinez,

    The required functionality is not possible, because the resources used by MainMenuDataSource are embedded into the compiled assemblies.
