Is there a way to add a tab on the publish form within the Template Manager like it is with the Channels?

For example, the Template Manager has the default Edit, Notes, Settings and Access form tabs. I wanted to add another from my custom module.

Is this currently possible within the core API?

You can create your own module to add a TAB in channel entries. You need to follow the documentation of creating a module.

This URL will help you to create a module. Your structure should be like given image below:

On your UPD file install function, remember to put has_publish_fields value as y. otherwise your data you want to display in tab will show on publish Tab.

  • Thanks! I understand how to add one to the channel entries, but my question was if there is a way to add one to the Template Editor inside the Template Manager?
