I'm currently working on some custom DNN functionality via a custom extension module. I have the need to add a custom Admin page that has a link within the "Admin" menu of DNN.

Could someone point me to some resources, or post a code sample/instructions, on how to create a custom Admin page in DNN that is part of a custom module?

Please forgive me, I'm basically new to DNN development. The last time I've done anything with DNN was years ago; I think it was DotNetNuke v2 at the time.

No problem, we were all new to it at one time. Note: the wiki has lots of useful information e.g. http://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki/page/... (the main wiki page also has quick links to new developer capabilities per release - http://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki )

As to creating the page, there is no longer anything special about pages under admin (in early DNN days, only admins could access them but this limitation was removed in dnn 3.0), so the advice at http://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki/page/... will work with you just identifying the admin page as the parent page.

However for admin pages, I'd suggest using a tabid rather than a fixed name (in case someone renames "admin" to something else) e.g. use PortalSettings.AdminTabid for the parented property when defining the tabid that you pass to tabcontroller.addtab(yournewtabinfo)
