Thumbs up What's the correct way of creating a new Admincp screen?

Hello guys, I need your opinion on how to to the following:

I want to create a new Admincp screen, and I wanted to ask you, what is the "correct" way of creating an admin screen on vBulletin 5?
In general, I need to know how to create new screens on all the website if possible, not only AdminCP.

Do you have any hints/ideas , or github examples I can use to get a better idea of what to do?

Thank you!

^^ what he said. Do you mean a new page? And, if so, a new page in the Options? Or a new section on the left? New Pages on the site are just created in Site Builder > New Page.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

To be more specific,
Let's say I want to create a URL like:
And be able to use vBulletin functions and core, as well as my own custom PHP includes.

Or in other situations, I want to create something like:
and use vBulleting functions, and my own functions.

Thank you

In AdminCP, you can create a new option link on the left pane and call your own php file and use existing vB functions and includes. You do this by creating an xml file in /core/includes/xml folder. As for the format in the xml, you can take a look at the existing xml files there.

As for new pages on the frontend, you do it using Sitebuilder > New Page as Lynne mentioned. You can drag and drop any module there including PHP module where you can call the vB API and your own custom functions. You can also use Ad modules and still be able to call the vB API and your own API using vB template syntax.

Thank you guys, I'm going to try that.
I did checked some examples of existing things, but I wanted to be sure those were correct approaches.
