Drupal 7: Add a custom link in admin menu

Here is some code to be used in a custom module in Drupal 7 in order to create a custom link in the admin menu. This item will show up in the Configuration section and it is particularly useful with the administration menu module.

function MYMODULE_menu () {
$items = array();
$items['admin/config/parent-name'] = array(
'title' => 'My Item Parent Name',
'description' => 'My Description',
'position' => 'left',
'weight' => -100,
'page callback' => 'system_admin_menu_block_page',
'access arguments' => array('administer site configuration'),
'file' => 'system.admin.inc',
'file path' => drupal_get_path('module', 'system'),
//We need at least one child item, otherwise parent will not show up
$items['admin/config/parent-name/child-name'] = array(
'title' => 'My Item Child Name',
'description' => 'My Description',
'page callback' => 'drupal_goto',
'page arguments' => array('my-path'),
'access arguments' => array('administer site configuration'),
