Configured via the trac.ini file, the following config, will create 2 new tabs on the mainmenu (One named 'Google' and one named 'My Blog') with the respective URLS and requiring the permissions specified (IE google requires WIKI_VIEW while MyBlog requires TRAC_ADMIN).


names=Google,My Blog

NB:The perms config is optional, but if left unspecified, it requires TRAC_ADMIN permissions to view the tabs.
