    Comment on it

    Hello Readers,
    In this blog, I’m going to show you the correct way to add an extra link to the existing top links section under Account.
    Existing top links are: My Cart, My Account, Checkout, My Wishtlist, Login etc
    These Top-links are managed in magento through layout xml files, See the below image.

     

     

    Top Links=> Above top links are coming from different layout xml files.

     

    My Account & login: these link is found in the customer.xml file.
    My Cart and Checkout: are coming from checkout.xml
    My Wishlist: is coming from wishlist.xml

     

    Add New Link To The Existing Top Links

    Suppose i need to add a new link for a CMS page called Contact Us. To do this open a layout file, let say customer.xml and add the below code:

    <default>
    <reference name="top.links">
      <action method="addLink" translate="label title">
        <label>Contact Us</label>
        <url>contacts</url>
        <title>Contact</title>
        <prepare>true</prepare>
        <position>2</position>
      </action>
    </reference>
    </default>

    The above code is correct way to add new link.

    Output:
