I modified the certification extension and renamed all parts in it so we can register disciplines.
I added it in the menu as a sub item of Connections using
Certifications was using 66.
It all shows up okay and we can register the disciplines good.
But I’m wondering if 67 is a safe choice? Because in the future you’ll probably create a new extension which could use that number.
What is the best way to use ‘own’ extensions so they wont get overwritten in the future?
I’ve included the zip file of it.
Kind regards, Age

Making you own extension is the only/bets way. As you;ve done.
In regards to the menu position, there is the possibility of an index collision in the future. If I remember of the top of my head correctly, you could use a decimal value for the index, such as
66.9123. Which would have a far less risk of a collision.
Hope that helps!07/09/2018 at 5:18 am #467080
Tried the decimal but that didn’t work. Also tried a comma, but that breaks up the website :)
So I’ll keep using 67 and keep a close eye on any new extensions you’ll make.
