I'm using 3.0.5 and having some bother getting custom menus to work.
I've referred to chapter 20 of your user manual (Version Jan 2013),
and trying to follow your example/s.
I have a custom_menu.ini file that works exactly as intended.
Here's a simple extract :
[Custom Reports--Audit Trail]
[Custom Reports--Sales Chart]
Of course, these custom menus are available for ALL users, (subject to roles and individual user restrictions).
When I rename the custom_menu.ini file as davidj_menu.ini, and login as davidj, I can't see any of these custom menu lines.
Please could you point me in the right direction to get this working as desired.
