  • How do I add blog to top panel with userCp, projects like on this site?

    I am learning this new script and I can't find out how to put "Blogs" on the list so they can be seen.

    Did you purchase the Blog? The Blog can be ordered in the Members Area. Just click on 'Renewals/New Purchases', then 'Continue' to get to that option.

    The cost is $60. Here is the documentation on vBulletin Blog:

      Yes, I purchased it and it was installed professionally but "blogs" only show in the members profile. They don't do any good if they are hidden. I need a way of posting a link of all of them at the top bar of the index page.

        There will also be a link to the Blog in the navbar, assuming you have not altered the templates and have installed it correctly.

        Try this. Create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Then change to this style and view your forums with it. Do you have the same problem?

        If you do, empty your browser cache, close all browser windows and try again.

        If you do not have this problem with the original templates, then this means the problem is with one or more of your custom templates. You need to revert your templates, then redo your changes.

          You need this variable in your custom navbar template: $template_hook[navbar_buttons_left]

          That is what the blog hooks into to show its link.

            Sorry to post here, but what if we are using a template called header and it has this variable but it's not being picked up by vblog...

            Or does it HAVE to be inside navbar?

            Because I want the fancy dancy flyout thanks for your time.
            Where does it end?

              Edit your header template.

              Find -

              <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="calendar.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[calendar]</a></td>
              And just after add -

              <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="blog.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[blog]</a></td>
              Worked for me
