    You don't have your actual navbar links in that template. Those are just your popups. You need to get rid of the "true" in your calls - you have vbmenu_register("community", true); and you need to change it to vbmenu_register("community");

    First you need to find the template that has your actual navbar links though. To do this - vboptions > General Settings > Add Template Name in HTML Comments > set to Yes . Then go back to your page and view the source code and you will see the name of the template called around your part of the code. Sometimes the template is the one mentioned at the very top of the page source.

        You would need to modify the User CP link to be similar to the other drop down links and then add all the link to want to show in the drop down to the popup part of the navbar template. The User CP doesn't have any drop down links by default which means you need to add them all yourself. There is an article in the Articles forum over on vb.org on how to create drop downs in your navbar (probably one here also in the Tips forum).
