Will work on all vBulletin versions.


Description

This minor template edit will remove the arrows that are to the right of all links with drop down menus in the navbar.

Installation Time

About 30 seconds!



In the navbar template

Find:

vbmenu_register("community")

Replace with:

vbmenu_register("community", true)


Find:

vbmenu_register("navbar_search")

Replace with:

vbmenu_register("navbar_search", true)


Find:

vbmenu_register("usercptools")

Replace with

vbmenu_register("usercptools", true)


Only a small modification but I think it neatens up the navbar on certain styles.

Not me .. Some of my users are so dumb I wonder how they even manage to log in sometimes, take away their arrows and other directional aids and they would be lost.

I cannot see the logic in doing this, just seems pointless..:confused:

It's pointless, and how are people going to know what type of menu item it is? If it doesn't have an arrow, I wouldn't click it because I'd assume it was going to open a new page/tab on me.


Thanks

Well I've had two of my buddies asked me how to do it and it works well on my custom skin. :)

not trying to bump, but had to check this out for a min thinking it would be good but this is like a complete opposite of what i had in mind, its like taking apart vbulletin rather than improving its look.

This is a support thread, not a discussion on whether you see the point to a mod. If you dont want to use it, feel free to leave this thread, not make unhelpful comments.

I know I'm also not helping much by replying but I just wanted to add that a mod should reset this poor guys addon rating. People are rating this addon based on its concept, not its execution.

Honestly people, who knows why someone would want this removed, but obviously someone did...

In some templates the arrows don't come over very well (i know its a template thing), just because of that.............. Great work to bring it on for the people who want to know how to do this

In alot of styles, the arrows don't show well if you're replacing the default vB arrow.
Almost all of my custom clients ask me to remove it, and I have been for years.

Really, people are smarter than you think. All they have to do is hover over the word on the navbar to get the dropdown menu. ;)
Good going choccyclaire.

Its a simple thing. The arrows don't always display the same in some browsers... at least customized themes. So it is an eye sore that is nice to easily remove.

Whether or not our users are stupid and can't figure it out is irrelevant to the fact that this post was helpful for a quick solution to an otherwise maddening template change during an update...

a simple template edit is better than this

in ADMINCP go to styles and templates
Click Style Manager
expand any of your custom styles
Select MAIN CSS

add the following to Additional CSS Definitions

.vbmenu_control img {
display:none;
}

or

.navitem img {
display:none;
}

or both, add these to each style and icon will go
you dont need to make any template edits
