  • Adding another dropdown menu

    I'm using VB3rc2. I'd like to add another dropdown menu like the one used for Quick Links. I know about editing the navbar template. What I don't know about is ID naming. I notice both dropdown menus have a unique ID. Is this necessary for other dropdowns, and where would it be referenced?

    Thank you.

    I can show how we did it:

    Search for:
    Code:
    		<if condition="$bbuserinfo['userid']">
     			<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="login.php?$session[sessionurl]do=logout" onclick="return log_out()">$vbphrase[log_out]</a></td>
     		</if>
     	</tr>
     	</table>
    replace with:
    Code:
    		<if condition="$bbuserinfo['userid']">
     			<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="$vboptions[homeurl]/login.php?$session[sessionurl]do=logout" onclick="return log_out()">$vbphrase[log_out]</a></td>
     		</if>
     			<td id="comicforum" class="vbmenu_control"><a href="#comicforum">$vbphrase[additional_links]</a> <script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("comicforum"); </script></td>		
     	</tr>
     	</table>
    Search for:
    Code:
    <!-- / NAVBAR POPUP MENUS -->
     </if>
    replace with:
    Code:
    <!-- Comicforum menu -->
     	<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="comicforum_menu" style="display:none">
     		<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">
     		<tr><td class="thead">$vbphrase[additional_links]</td></tr>    	
     		<tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="http://www.spreadshirt.de/shop.php?sid=6475">$vbphrase[cf_shop]</a></td></tr>
     		</table>
     	</div>
     	<!-- / Comicforum Menu -->
     
     	
     <!-- / NAVBAR POPUP MENUS -->
     </if>
    As you can see, "comicforum" was used in the IDs, and in vb_register. It works perfectly. If you have any more question, just ask

      Oy! It looks kind of scary

      But thank you, and I'll study this.

        ah forgot it: You need to do that in the navbar-template of course

          is there a way to make this an ADMIN CPANEL feature? Like... add your own popup menues? That would be a great HACK/CODE MOD!!

            Thanks to your example, I was able to do what I needed.

            Thanks again.

                How do you actually change a nav bar link? I see where the template is but I do not understand how to change them?

                  I guess you don't know anything about HTML? I would give you the advice to learn HTML first. Everything else is easy when done that...

                    Might be a conditional not set right. But to know exactly why it doesn't work, I would need to see your code in the navbar-template. Can you please post it here?

                      It's probably because of the $vbphrase's that aren't created yet
