  • Add a menuitem in Navbar

    How do I add another menu item in the navbar (not in the quick links)?

    Thanks!

    Open your navbar template

    AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Edit Templates > Navigation/Breadcrumb Templates > navbar > Edit (or Customize)

    Locate the code for the calendar link (search in the template for calendar) and copy everything from <td class="vbmenu_control"> to </td>

    Paste that right after the closing </td> for the calendar code and change the link and title for your new link.

      Would this work if I wanted to add a 'Home' link to the far left of my navbar? I tried doing what you said exactly, pasting it after the calendar code...changed the name to home and changed the link, saved, then refreshed...even rebuilt styles, and I don't see anything.

        What exactly have you added?

        Are you viewing the same style as you have edited?

        Yes, it would work exactly the same for a Home link at the left of the navbar by adding it before the Register link.

          Using your tips, Kerry, I've been successful in adding items to my navbar, such as a Home and Forum link. They work great in Firefox, but I get an error using Internet Explorer.

          The first error:

          Code:
          Line: 651
          Char: 3
          Error: 'vBmenu.menus[...]' is null or not an object
          Code: 0
          URL: http://www.pale-riders.com/forum/index.php
          The second error:

          Code:
          Line: 634
          Char: 4
          Error: 'vBmenu.menus[...]' is null or not an object
          Code: 0
          URL: http://www.pale-riders.com/forum/index.php
          navbar template:

          Code:

            Why have you added this?
            Code:
            <script type="text/javascript">
                    vbmenu_register("Forum");
                </script>
            These are only used for dropdown menus like search and quick links. Delete all instances of this code and it's varients that you have added.

              Going through all the notes about how to add links and what code to use, I probably picked up some extra baggage. Thanks for the help.

                Locate the code for the calendar link (search in the template for calendar) and copy everything from <td class="vbmenu_control"> to </td>

                Paste that right after the closing </td> for the calendar code and change the link and title for your new link.
                How do I paste the code to another link...I want to add the link "Chat" on the navbar and I am trying to follow this....

                <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="http://www.sitename.com/forums/chat[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[Chat]</a></td>

                This isnt working for me...do I use the location from the server instead of the URL?
