getContent() not showing config link in Prestashop module

I'm currently writing a Prestashop module, and I'm trying to create a configuration page.

Following the docs and reading another modules, I've ended trying this snippet to test:

public function getContent() {
return '<h1>Config</h1>';

If I install the module, Prestashop redirects me to a page like this

Config page working

Which is correct. But in the admin Prestashop does not generate the configuration link.

configuration link not showing

The question is: what the heck I need to do to show that link?

Answer Source

In the config.xml file of your module there's a is_configurable option :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    <displayName><![CDATA[Top horizontal menu]]></displayName>
    <description><![CDATA[Adds a new horizontal menu to the top of your e-commerce website.]]></description>

It is also configurable from the module constructor:

class MyModule extends Module {
    public function __construct() {
        // ...
        $this->is_configurable = true;
        // ...
