  • How to create a custome navigation bar

    Not sure if I am naming this correctly, but what we are setting up our website and are pretty new at using VB.
    How do we get bar on the top of each forum area that allows the users to go back through the child to parent forums?
    oops, when I pasted it, it didn't go straight across like you have in your forum here.


    Here is a link to what ours looks like but has no links to go back to the parent forums.
    I guess I just figured it was automatic and we would not have to set it up that way.

    Thanks for any direction you can give us

    In my templates, in navbar, I have:

    HTML Code:
     <td class="alt1" width="100%">
      <if condition="is_array($navbits)">
       <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
       <tr valign="bottom">
        <td><a href="#" onclick="history.back(1); return false;"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_start.gif" alt="$vbphrase[go_back]" border="0" /></a></td>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
        <td width="100%"><span class="navbar"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]" accesskey="1">$vboptions[bbtitle]</a></span> $navbits[breadcrumb]</td>
       </tr>
       <tr>
        <td class="navbar" style="font-size:10pt; padding-top:1px" colspan="3"><if condition="$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST'"><img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_finallink_$stylevar[textdirection].gif" alt="" border="0" /><else /><a href="$navbar_reloadurl"><img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_finallink_$stylevar[textdirection].gif" alt="$vbphrase[reload_this_page]" border="0" /></a></if> <strong>$navbits[lastelement]</strong></td>
       </tr>
       </table>
      <else />
       <div class="navbar" style="font-size:10pt"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]" accesskey="1"><img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_start.gif" alt="" border="0" /></a> <strong>$vboptions[bbtitle]</strong></div>
      </if>
     </td>
    This builds that element up to what you are looking for.

      thanks, now I'm trying to find out where I place this code
      My husband is working on other areas of the website and I'm trying to learn and do some of the things for him.
      I'm already in VB admin under "Styles and Templates". I dont see a navbar template but do see a pagenav.

      Could this be where I need to replace code?

        In the templates list, you should see, Navigation / Breadcrumb Templates

          ok, think I found it. Double clicked in a couple areas and found the navbar template.

          We use a skin from I think Forum Monkeys. Our code shows this

          <if condition="$show['notices']">
          <form action="profile.php?do=dismissnotice" method="post" id="notices">
          <input type="hidden" name="do" value="dismissnotice" />
          <input type="hidden" name="securitytoken" value="$bbuserinfo[securitytoken]" />
          <input type="hidden" id="dismiss_notice_hidden" name="dismiss_noticeid" value="" />
          <input type="hidden" name="url" value="$return_link" />
          <h4 class="navbarHeading">$vbphrase[notices]</h4>
          <div class="navbarNotices">
          $notices
          </div>
          </form>

                  I just found out I messed up my husbands Ad placements because the skin we use places them there too and adding the bread crumb wiped out the ads woops.
                  He said the bread crumb needs to go in the header
