Sometimes there can be requirement that you want to create custom Admin page which will be accessible to Admin/Non-Admin user.

Here is an example:

  • Create aspx page “CustomAdminPage.aspx” inside “<root>/sitecore/admin” folder
 <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="CustomAdminPage.aspx.cs" Inherits="Namespace.CustomAdminPage" %>  
 <!DOCTYPE html>  
 <html xmlns="">  
 <head runat="server">  
   <title>Custom Admin Page</title>  
   <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/sitecore/shell/Themes/Standard/Default/WebFramework.css" />  
   <link rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" href="./default.css" />  
   <form id="form1" runat="server" class="wf-container">  
     <div class="wf-content">  
       <h1>Custom Admin Page  
         <div class="root">  
           <asp:button runat="server" text="Click" ID="btnClick" OnClick="btnClick_Click"/>  
           <br />  
           <asp:Label ID="lblMessage" runat="server"></asp:Label>  
  • Implement server-side code 
  • Add "Sitecore.Client" assembly

 namespace Namespace  
   public partial class CustomAdminPage : AdminPage  
     protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)  
     protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)  
       //CheckSecurity will check that user should have admin rights  
     protected void btnClick_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)  
       lblMessage.Text = "Button Clicked";  
    // Do your custom code  
  • Now go to in browser and type http://<yoursite>/sitecore/admin/CustomAdminPage.aspx

In project, where are you implementing CustomAdminPage class. Sitecore.Client is require for AdminPage. You can find Sitecore.Client via Nuget
