Example:

{% extends "admin:admin/index.html" %}

{% block sidebar %}
    {{block.super}}
    <div>
        < h1>Statistics< /h1>
        < a href="/admin/station/stats/">Published Stations< /a>
    </div>
{% endblock %}

Configuration:

TEMPLATES = [
    {
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': [
            'your_app/templates'
        ],
        'OPTIONS': {
            # (...)
            # See: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/3.2/ref/templates/api/#django.template.loaders.cached.Loader
            'loaders': [
                ('django.template.loaders.cached.Loader', [
                    'django.template.loaders.filesystem.Loader',
                    'django.template.loaders.app_directories.Loader',
