OpenCart admin menu link url

Check my answer here: - I have answered for the very similar question, anyway the answer is the same as for Your question.

But to guide You more precisely:

language file /admin/language/<YOUR_LANGUAGE>/common/header.php add e.g.:

$_['text_my_module'] = 'My Module Title';

controller file /admin/controller/common/header.php add e.g.:

$this->data['text_my_module'] = $this->language->get('text_my_module');


$this->data['my_module'] = $this->url->link('module/order_export', 'token=' . $this->session->data['token'], 'SSL');

and finally the template file /admin/view/template/common/header.tpl add:

<a href="<?php echo $my_module; ?>" class="top"><?php echo $text_my_module; ?></a>

where applicable...

Is this the correct answer for You?
