This is actually a direct re-release of my mod for vB 3.5. It integrates easily into your forumdisplay and showthread templates, making it more handy to navigate when users scroll down the page.

This requires all of 2 template edits

First, open 'FORUMDISPLAY', in the last few lines, find
$footer
Directly above that, add this
<table class="tborder" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" border="0" width="100%">
<tr>
<td class="alt2"><span class="navbar"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]" accesskey="1">$vboptions[bbtitle]</a></span> $navbits[breadcrumb] &gt;<strong>$navbits[lastelement]</strong></td>
</tr>
</table>
If instead you prefer it below your New Thread button at the bottom, you can add the same code above the following line:

<!-- Active Users in this Forum (and sub-forums) and Moderators -->



Then open up 'SHOWTHREAD', again find
$footer
And add above it
<table class="tborder" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" border="0" width="100%">
<tr>
<td class="alt2"><span class="navbar"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]" accesskey="1">$vboptions[bbtitle]</a></span> $navbits[breadcrumb] &gt;<strong>$navbits[lastelement]</strong></td>
</tr>
</table>

If your navigation seems squashed against things, add a <br /> tag above opening <table> tag and/or below the </table> tag.

Viola! Bottom Forum Navigation for all!

Cool! I did this on my forums about 3 years ago. Never thought of posting it as a template mod, LOL. Good job you did!

You should put this directly under the posts as most people aren't going to want to scroll through the legend and permissions fields to do that. Example: www.nonewbs.com -- but we've used more of the navbar breadcrumb retaining the border, formatting, etc

Love this hack !

Think vB should come with this by default though to really.

Thanks,

I removed the navbits to add a logo, so I added this just under $navbar in order to replace the navbits. :up:
