  • How do I add a About Us tab?

    I would like to add a tab called "About Us". The purpose of this tab is to create a page that describes the forum. I would like to add some text and a picture. Ideally it would call a php file when you click the tab. However I'd like to have the header and footer so it looks like a regular page.

    Site Builder > New Page > put html or php module into middle of page > click Edit Pencil and enter html (or php) > (could also click to Change Layout, if you want a different layout, etc)> Save New Page > enter Page Name (About Us), template (template_aboutus ?), URL (please note this) > OK.

    Then, click Site Builder > Navigation Bar > New Navigation Item > give title, url (case sensitive!) > Save Changes

      ^I see the Birthday Girl beat me to it.

      Here's what I did;


      Site Builder
      > New Page
      > Clicked and dragged static html module in layout, named it About Us, added text
      > Save New Page
      > enter Page Name = About Us
      > template = aboutus
      URL; I entered mysite.com/aboutus.php
      > OK.


      The rest is exactly the same.

        Thank you, Lynne and WhatChaMissin.

        Unfortunately I still can't get it. What should I put in for the Target URL?

        If I put in a full html path to a php file, that page loads without the header, navbar and footer.

          Oh wait, it looks like you are using a php widget? I just used a static html module (even though there isn't a lot of working space).

            I used a php module, not sure if that makes a difference. If I put in a path it just goes to that php file.

            Does anyone know how to delete a new page? In this screen it says to go to the Admin CP, but the link doesn't work and I can't find anywhere to delete pages in Admin CP.

            Okay I finally got it. I was not able to use aboutus as the URL but using aboutus2 worked.

            Here are the two screens.

                I went to the routenew table and deleted the aboutus entry. Now I'm able to make the URL be aboutus.
