Add custom navigation items

Since Pro 7.0.9, Seafile supports adding some custom navigation entries to the home page for quick access. This requires you to add the following configuration information to the conf/ configuration file:

    {'icon': 'sf2-icon-star',
     'desc': 'Custom navigation 1',
     'link': ''
    {'icon': 'sf2-icon-wiki-view',
     'desc': 'Custom navigation 2',
     'link': ''
    {'icon': 'sf2-icon-wrench',
     'desc': 'Custom navigation 3',
     'link': ''

**Note: The icon field currently only supports icons in Seafile that begin with sf2-icon. You can find the list of icons here:

Then restart the Seahub service to take effect.

Once you log in to the Seafile system homepage again, you will see the new navigation entry under the Tools navigation bar on the left.
