Installing the front-end

If you are using the new Six template SoluteDNS can add the required menu entries automatically, meaning you can skip the next steps.

1. Open your template folder and locate clientareadomaindetails.tpl.

2. Open the file in a text editor and locate:

{if $dnsmanagement}<li><a href="clientarea.php?action=domaindns&domainid={$domainid}">{$LANG.clientareadomainmanagedns}</a></li>{/if}

Example code

3. Change clientarea.php?action=domaindns to index.php?m=solutedns

further on in this document you may have this code:

{if $addonstatus.dnsmanagement}
<a href="clientarea.php?action=domaindns&domainid={$domainid}">Manage</a> | <a href="clientarea.php?action=domainaddons&id={$domainid}&disable=dnsmanagement&token={$token}">Disable</a>

Also replace here clientarea.php?action=domaindns to index.php?m=solutedns

4. Safe the document in your template folder.

5. When necessary clear your template cache: Go to: Ulities > System > Cleanup en click ‘Emty Template Cache’.


If you want to grant clients access to the Zone Management and Template Management pages you can do so by adding a link anywhere you like (for example the header menu) to the following location:

Zone Management:

Template Management:

Do not forget to enable these features from the admin settings page.
