Subviews (tabs in other modules)

If you want tabs for your module to appear within other modules, do not edit those other modules. Instead, you should use our subview loader to get the tabs to appear automagically. No further configuration is necessary.

Naming Convention

In order to have your tabs/subviews appear within other modules, there is a specific naming convention to follow:

{OtherModule}_tab.[Modulaction].{BaseModule}.php where

In Practice

From our Todos Module example, there are a trio of files that give us Todos subviews within other modules.

Notice: These tabs are cached whenever a User logs in, therefore after enabling a module that has subviews, any active users will have to log out and log back in to see the new tabs.
