  • [Forum] How do I add items to the new menu?

    I'd like to add some menu items to the new menu. I'm not sure what the menu is called and I can't seem to find it in the template listing, but in the forum here the items are Home, Forum, Blogs, What's New?, & Projects.

    In which template is this menu found?

    Here's a trick - 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 are looking for the navbar template most likely. There are several mods and a couple of articles over on vb.org regarding adding to the navtabs or the submenus.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

        navbar was the first one I checked but I didn't see anywhere obvious for it. I'll try that and check again - thanks.

        TB - if that doesn't work I'll try the plugin - thanks for the heads up.

          This did work perfectly - thanks. I enabled template names in HTML comments and still couldn't make heads or tails of anything.

            I am wondering the same thing but need to be able to have the tab I add link to a (otherwise hidden) forum section, and then highlight when selected.

            vBH New Tabs does not do that. In fact, the only thing vBH does is allow you to link to external sites or pages, which I don't need.

            Anybody have any ideas or know of a solution to do this?

              If the forum permissions are based on user groups you can just put a tab up with a link to the forum URL and specify which usergroups can see it.

                Thanks eam,

                But does it then highlight the tab when in that forum? That's pretty essential.

                  It doesn't appear to. It doesn't look like it integrates with the forum in that way.

                    That's not true. I'm using it. I use one new tab to link to "Today's Posts" like vB3.x used to do - that's azn internal search URL and it works fine. The tab also is highlighted when you pause over it or click it (although it doesn't stay highlighted).

                      The article I wrote over on vb.org, along with ragtek's, both tell you how to write a condition to make the tab stay highlighted. You need to understand how to write a condition though.

                        What's the link for or title of that article, Lynne?

                          Like I said, I wrote it so it's listed right in my profile over there - [HOW TO - vB4] Create a New Tab in the navbar There are others in that articles forum also. A search using the term 'navbar' will probably bring them up.
