Whats New - Remove safely
Mod Version: 1.00, by OldSchoolDSL (Designer) OldSchoolDSL is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.1.x Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 23
Released: 09 Dec 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 8
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

This will remove the "What's New" navigation tab

Safely
  • No 3nd party modification conflicts
  • No products to import
  • No added database query
  • No CSS issues
  • Easy to carry over in upgrade

Tested on 4.1.7 , 4.1.8, and 4.1.9 beta 1
Tested on default template and custom templates

Why would you want to remove, "What's New?"
  • Save server load
  • Save page load
  • Improve the layout for a more cleaner look
  • Make room on the navigation tab for other modifications
  • Maybe you found a modification that does the same thing, but in a different way

Step 1

Backup your database
------- Something everyone should do no matter what mod, template, or tweak you ever add.


Step 2


In navbar look for the following



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


You are going to wrap it around using this:



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


So when done it will look like this:



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Step 3


Look for



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


You are again going to wrap it around with this



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


So when done it will look like this:



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Save and reload


In another browser tab or window, check out the results.
If all is well as it should be.... Congratulation you are done

Please make installed

I Like the What's New Button.

Removing it means 2 clicks to see what's new as opposed to one.

Then don't install it. Look how simple that was. I can never understand why people like you feel the need to post they don't need a mod. He posted it for people who DO want it.

Removed. Thanks!

It would be helpful for n00bs like me to know that the NavBar can be found here:

Go to AdminCP.
Click "Styles & Templates"
Click "Style Manager"
On your site's style select "Edit Templates"
Scroll down to "Navigation / Breadcrumb Templates" and *double-click* it.
Scroll down to it again and then find "navbar".
*double-click* it or single-click it and then click the "Edit" button.

Then use the "Search in template" box and put the entirety of the lines to find and then click "Find".

Then follow the directions above.


As far as needing the "What's New" button... I don't feel that this should be at the TOP of the site anyway.

I'll put a link to it somewhere else.

Again, THANKS!

if you have TMS installed use this to do the the job for you

ensure you upload it to Mater Style not default, this will then apply to all other templates
