    I find myself always going back to http://site.site/admin.php?tools/phpinfo for things here and there. I noticed that it was not in the ACP -> Tools navi anywhere I would always have to type it in manually. Yet a same edit can it be possible that we get it as a core feature to be located say "ACP -> Tool -> PHP Info" ?

    I'm all for this. I don't think it would hurt to add it and I'm fairly sure a simple template edit could be made to include it.

    Its not a template edit. XenForo admin navigation items are stored within the database.

    Yes, I know this.

    But what I'm saying is it wouldn't be hard to add a button / link in the admin style and all it would have to do is point to:


    This is what I meant by simply adding it.

    Until then, you can do this:

    1. Enable debug mode, enter AdminCP -> Development -> Admin Navigation -> Create Admin Navigation
    2. Enter the following values:

      Admin Navigation ID: phpInfo
      Title: PHP Info
      Link: tools/phpinfo
      Parent Navigation: Tools
      Display Order: 3000
      Uncheck Hide this navigation when there are no viewable children
    3. Save and disable debug mode.

    I remembered in the vBulletin AdminCP, there was a LINK for this function...

    As such, I wondered how to accomplish something similar for XF and turned up this helpful page entitled: How can I view my php settings using a phpinfo page? Using that tutorial, I managed to figure it out.

    Now to my surprise, after tripping across this discussion I discover it's apparently a (hidden) feature within the XF database. o_O

    Thanxx to @NixFifty's instructions, I was able to add a LINK for it now...

    I had no idea the capability to add such links even existed in XF via the Admin Navigation function. :cool:

    $config['debug'] = true;
    in /library/config.php
