This is working great in the front site wp admin bar:

add_action('wp_before_admin_bar_render', 'customize_admin_bar');

function customize_admin_bar() {
    global $wp_admin_bar;
    if (is_user_logged_in()) {
        if ( !is_admin()) {
          /*$wp_admin_bar->add_menu( array(
            'id' => 'custom-account',
            'parent' => 'my-account',
            'title' => __( 'Mi cuenta'),
            'href' => '/pedidos/products-page/your-account/'
            ) );*/


but not in the wp-admin menubar, why?

Short answer, but you have a !is_admin() condition. That will prevent the bulk of that code from running on the back end. Remove that and the code should work on both front and back.

THANKS! used !current_user_can('administrator') instead, cause I want the actual admin to be able to see everything – Toni Michel Caubet May 26 '13 at 2:55
