I have installed Openstack Kilo single node on Virtual Box ubuntu server version and I am trying to modify the Openstack Kilo Horizon page. What I am successful in doing is- I have added a dummy button on the header panel of the Openstack UI by adding a html code of button to the " _header.html " file whose location is


As it is on the header panel, it appears on all the pages/tabs.

What I want is -- There should be a button only on the "Instances" page/tab. I want to know which file should be modified so that the button appears only in the "Instances" tab.

Please help.

Yes thanks, I went through the files and made changes in the html files, but whenever I make changes, reload the page on the browser, a server error(500) comes up and the Openstack login page also doesnt appear. The page appears only when I undo all the changes. Could you help me on it?
