I need to create an extra section in side menu and make it properly. The way it did it with vanilla js is error prone and just not fit Discourse’s philosophy.
I have read Beginner's guide to developing Discourse Themes three times, checked all widgets, plugin outlets and templates and haven’t found anything related to modifying the side menu itself. Please advise on how I can add new section to the side menu in a proper way. i am really lost and frustrated.
This is the way I didi it. And I don’t like this solution
I’m afraid you may have to wait for the next Stable release to gain this functionality as Communiteq use the Stable version for the majority of their sites. But the good news is it shouldn’t be too long to wait, as the next version of Stable is due out soon.
If you can hang on until then it will make your menu customisation a lot easier.
