The SDL slide-out navigation pane lets us view multiple SDL applications from the same panel (via the slide out "hamburger" menu).

I see how we can extend the slide-out navigation Welcome screen (requires login) and a recent SmartTarget update shows Targeting in the slide-out Navigation in our environment.

Where can I find instructions to show SDL Media Manager for a given SDL Tridion setup?


Following John's example, I was able to set the following working example for external URLs (example with SDL Live Content).


  • Attribute domain starts with http://
  • Attribute url starts with /
  • I matched domainId to the applicationDomain node with the matching id attribute
  • Sites that restrict being embedded in iFrames throw an error in the console (Load denied by X-Frame-Options: does not permit cross-origin framing.).

    <applicationEntryPointGroup id="docs" title="Documentation">
        <applicationEntryPoint id="SDL Live Content" type="docs" domainId="docs" url="/" />
    <applicationEntryPointGroup id="" title="Web Content Management">
    </applicationEntryPointGroup >

i recently wrote a blog post about how to do this, you can find it here :

I did try the info provided in your links but i couldn't get it to work, i also noticed that that the 'targeting' link is also included using the method described in my blog post.

hope this helps.
