Add Custom Page to Dashboard

I need to add a custom page to the Dashboard that would have tutorials and other information. For example, under the Support menu that is added by the WPMU DEV Support System plugin, I'd like to add a page.

What's the best way to do this? Should I create my own plugin that adds the page? I've seen some code that might work, but I'm not sure of all the details.

    Hiya Mark,

    Yep, plugin is the best route on a network install as David said. If you were doing it on a single-site you could do the same thing through a theme's function.php file, but as this is a network, you'll have to use a plugin.

    If you want to add a subpage to the DEV plugin specifically, take a look at how those pages are added and use that as a template - you'd have to edit the actual plugin files of course which can make upgrades dangerous/frustrating

    Hope this helps!
