[HOW TO - vB4] Remove the vB Default Navtabs

Here is a quick article on how to remove some of the default vbulletin navtabs from the navbar template.

Removing the What's New navtab:

Find (near the top of the template):

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

Change to:

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

Find and Remove (about 2/3 down):

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

SAVE

In a default navbar template, after removing the chunk of code above, you should end up with this in the template where the code used to be:

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

Removing the Home navtab:
Go to Plugins & Products > Plugin Manager > Product: vBulletin CMS > Navbar: Insert CMS Navbar Entry
Plugin is Active: NO
SAVE


Removing the Blogs navtab:
Go to Plugins & Products > Plugin Manager > Product: vBulletin Blog > Navbar: Eval Blog Link Template and Validate Styleid
Find and Remove (or comment out):

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

SAVE

Removing the Forum navtab:

Find and remove (starts near the very top):

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

SAVE

Thanks Lynne. Can you tell me how to add Groups and Albums on the main nav bar?

Help - it is not clear to me - which template I should be looking in to get rid of the What's new button.

As to my previous question - I got information from another article. Thanks.

Sorry, I didn't realize I had not put that in there! It is the navbar template you need to edit.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Is it possible to only show certain Navtabs to certain usergroups? for example I have Downloads Tab but only want UG 8 to be able to see the tab, by default right now my navbar is getting cluttered but not all groups need to be seeing all options.

Thanks in advance.

That is not present int he default style. So, you've changed some stylevar somewhere. You should use firebug to figure out what. It's not really the scope of this article though.

Sure you can put conditions around the tabs. There are articles here on how to write conditions for only certain usergroups and then you can apply that condition to your tab.

I don't see any product called "vBulletin CMS" either. I am not using Suite, just the Forum version if that makes any difference.

I'm sorry, but if you aren't using the Suite, you won't have a Home tab and therefore you don't need to remove it. So I don't understand why you guys are wondering about how to remove a tab that doesn't exist for you?

The Home and Blog tabs are only going to show if you have the Suite.
