Find in template navbar

Replace with

EDIT: it works, look in the php code above for the answer...but if you got CMPS out of your fourms DIR, that's a slight problem as the avatar images don't show up. I'll find out that error and fix it right away.

seems to work. But you are right. My CMPS is outside of my forums directory and my avatar does not show up. Is there a variable or something i can use to automatically determin the path of the avatars directory?

hello, i was wondering if my forum would benefit from this being that i have a purchased style, and was wondering how i go about placing this under my nav bar, so that my image at the top stays intact...and so my nav bar stays the same?

if you have time,

thanks for any help you can provide

bitg: I just noticed that the welcome panel not only appears on the CMPS, but on every other page as well...This is puzzling indeed, and on top of that, the forum stats and the new posts varibles are also missing. I'll have to keep working on this.

turbidblue: Your navbar should remain intact, because all you have to do is edit the navbar template. The Banner will remain intact as well, as this does not edit the Header template. But since that is a type of style I have never dealt with before, I'm not certain, but all should remain.

Wonderful, glad it worked!

I figured out the problem with the hack being on CMPS...The phrases that are in the file edit are not in the cmps file. I must figure out a way to include the phrases, and then, it will no doubt work. Hang in there bitg.

I've finally gotton it to work, but the welcome panel appears on every page instead of just on the CMPS and Index, just a minor issue but will be adressed, then i'll update the hack to 1.1! Unfortunatly, the file edit will now be in global.php instead of index.php. I doubt having file edits for both will hurt anything, but when I release it I advise you to remove the hack from index.php.


EDIT: Issue fixed, new version uploaded with full instructions, GO GET 1.1!

Hehem I had to reupload it because of a slight instructions error. I had below instead of above and that can cause something nasty errors.
