        This means a modification you made removed this.

        To troubleshoot this, first reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version and that none show 'File does not contain expected contents':

        Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

        [Note: In some cases you may also need to remove any of the listed .xml files in the includes/xml directory.]

        Next, disable all plugins.

        Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

        define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

        Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it.

            You do not need forumjump on main page, as it is redundant and you would need to modify files I do believe.

            You search for varible $forumjump and move to what location you wish to be seen on. You have several templates to do this on.

                  actually I couldn't see the original forum jump so I had nothing to move, I just added it manually to the top (header area).

                    Original, by it you mean the template the variable $forumjump pulls from? The template is called: forumjump.

                    imprezion, how did you get it to showup in header template. It should not even work, but then you have it working or just have 'blank'.

                        Yeah, but hów did you fix it?

                        Because, when you just insert it in a template it won't work and when you move it around in a template it won't work either...that is, not with me

                          I been to imprezion site and do not see any forumjump within header template. I do not think it would work in template: header and footer. It maybe condtion to only be seen by a selected user/usergroup, but I still do not think you can do this without modifying code and or adding plugin.
