  • add a new link

    How do i add a new link to the menu at the top where it says: home, user cp, faq, member list, calendar, and search?

  • #2
    It's simple. Once in your Admin CP, go to:

    Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Edit Templates (in the dropdown)

    Select the navbar template under Navigation/Breadcrumb Templates, and choose to customize it.

    Find this:

    Code:
    <!-- nav buttons bar -->
    And it's simple, Each link is made up of the following code:

    Code:
    <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="YOUR_LINK_HERE">TEXT_DISPLAYED_IN_NAVBAR</a></td>
    Pick where you want it, copy that bit of code and add your URL and title. Save the changes and check it out!

        That isn't the default navbar, so I couldn't help you with that... my best advice would be to find the template the code for it is located in and do some copy/paste work from there.

            I'm trying to customise my menu, but I can't work it out for ove nor money. I don't have the above code in my template. My template is:

            Code:
            <script type="text/javascript">
            <!--
            function log_out()
            {
             ht = document.getElementsByTagName("html");
             ht[0].style.filter = "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(grayscale=1)";
             if (confirm('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]'))
             {
              return true;
             }
             else
             {
              ht[0].style.filter = "";
              return false;
             }
            }
            //-->

              Your navbar template has been customized with some other style. You need to look in other templates to find where to make those changes. Or contact the author of your style.
