  • [Forum] Is it possible to add a "forum tree" location to the bottom?

    What I'm talking about is at the top, you have a forum tree, which shows you where exactly you are in the forum. For example:



    Is there a way to add this to the bottom of each page as well? Is this a simple setting, or will I need to have an add on or adjust code?

    It's called a breadcrumb. Sure you can add one to the bottom of the thread. You will need to edit the SHOWTHREAD template.

      In VB4 the code to create the breadcrumb is in the navbar template:

      Code:
      <div id="breadcrumb" class="breadcrumb">
      	<ul class="floatcontainer">
      		<li class="navbithome"><a href="index.php{vb:raw session.sessionurl_q}" accesskey="1"><img src="{vb:stylevar imgdir_misc}/navbit-home.png" alt="{vb:rawphrase home}" /></a></li>
      
      
      		{vb:raw navbits.breadcrumb}
      		{vb:raw navbits.lastelement}
      	</ul>
      	<hr />
      </div>
      Unfortunately simply copying that code to the footer will not work. Custom code will be required to make the breadcrumb available in the footer- or any other template. These types of modifications can be discussed on vBulletin.org.

      Lynne has a mod to do this in SHOWTREAD: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=229290

        As Joe pointed out you can't copy the code found in the navbar template and put it elsewhere. Here's what I did on my vb4 forum. Add this to the SHOWTHREAD template.

        Code:
        </vb:comment>
        
        <!-- add breadcrumb to bottom -->

          Are you sure that is correct code? Closing a vb:comment that it is never opened?

            Hi Joe,

            The part I added is shown in bold. The code above and below are there for reference so the OP knows where to place the added code.

                Hi,

                On a related issue I have seen a forum that I use regularly:

                http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...cussion-forum/

                Have a "forum jump" combo drop down box at the bottom of the page to quickly move between forums.

                Any idea how that is done and how I can add it to my forum?

                Thanks,
                Dale.

                  Forum Jump in 3.x was renamed "Quick Navigation" in 4.x.

                  To enable it go to Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> General Settings -> Use Quick Navigation Menu -> Yes.

                    Quick navigation not working

                    Hi,

                    I have turned on quick navigation but it still isn't showing the drop down box.

                    Could it be a conflict with my custom style? I didn't create the style but rather paid to have it created for me.

                    The forum is at:

                    www.settledin.com.au/forum/

                    Thanks,
                    Dale.

                      Yes, it is likely the style designer didn't include the code at all. Try using the default style and see if the drop down box appears.

                        Still not working

                        Hi,

                        I used the combo box at the bottom of the page to select the default style but it still doesn't show the quick navigation.

                        Any ideas?

                        Dale.

                          I see it, even on your custom style:

                            Hi,

                            Thanks for letting me know and I'm sorry I was wrong.

                            By way of explanation I am vision impaired and use some screen reading software from www.hj.com (called Jaws for Windows) to read the computer screen and it isn't obviously reading it properly. It is different to the Warrior forum at www.warriorforum.com though as it definitely has a drop down combo box and my site doesn't seem to but I'll take your word for it that it is fine.

                            Thanks,
                            Dale.

                              The exact coding of the drop down menu is different at the warrior forum because they are using an older version of vBulletin, 3.x. In vBulletin 4 the styles were all given a make-over as well as the coding used to produce this menu.
