Released: 25 Jan 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

This small modification will allow you to either center or removed vBulletin's small default forum title & welcome message.

Credit goes to myself & CoreyLTH

You should always BACKUP your database before making changes.


To Center:


In ForumHome look for


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

Replace with:


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

To Remove:


In FORUMHOME

Look for:


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

And wrap it around wih


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

So when done it will look like


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


v1.1 = UPDATE 02-23-2011

IMPORTANT: Always backup your database before making any edits.

In navbar look for:


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

READ CLOSELY:

Wrap everything around it with


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

except for


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

So the surrounding code will look like this when done....


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

This will remove the "Home" icon and the word "Forum" on your Forum Homepage, but still keep your quick navigation links within your forums.

Optional - Grammar correction

This really will depend on your own liking and the name of your site. Bit if you want to change the welcome message from,

"Welcome to the X"

And change it to

"Welcome to X"

Go to:

AdminCP > Languages & Phrases > Search in Phrases

Search for


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

Using the Phrase Text and Phrase Variable Name search, option.

There should only find 1 per language installed

Change it to

PHP Code:

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

This will remove the "Home" icon and the word "Forum" on your Forum Homepage, but still keep your quick navigation links within your forums.

FUN FACT: Removing this seems to speed up the page load. I would suspect its because it queries less in the CSS for browsers to decode.

I love the idea but when I did it to my forums it did some bad things that maybe you can help me with:

look here: http://www.boatinghowto.com/showthre...rbor-Boat-Show

My Join us on facebook, youtube and twitter were put in my advertising slot and it jammed them up against my breadcrumbs on the same line.

Can you help?
