Adding sections and links to the Site Settings page

Adding groups and links to the Site Settings page can easily be done using a feature. Simply create a feature and add the appropriate XML to the Elements.xml file. Here is an example. This is a great way to provide access to lists that are using for configuration or logging and are generally accessed by site administrators but should be hidden from other users.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">  <CustomActionGroup    Id="Configuration"    Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.SiteSettings"    Title="Configuration"    Sequence="100" />  <CustomAction    Id="GeneralConfiguration"    RequireSiteAdministrator="TRUE"    GroupId="Configuration"    Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.SiteSettings"    Sequence="1000"    Title="General Configuration">    <UrlAction Url="Lists/General Configuration/"/>  </CustomAction>  <CustomAction    Id="EmailConfiguration"    RequireSiteAdministrator="TRUE"    GroupId="Configuration"    Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.SiteSettings"    Sequence="1001"    Title="Email Configuration">    <UrlAction Url="Lists/Email Configuration/"/>  </CustomAction></Elements>
