Whats New - Remove safely
Mod Version: 1.00, by OldSchoolDSL (Designer) OldSchoolDSL is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2017 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.1.x Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 27
Released: 09 Dec 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 10
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

This will remove the "What's New" navigation tab

Safely
  • No 3nd party modification conflicts
  • No products to import
  • No added database query
  • No CSS issues
  • Easy to carry over in upgrade

Tested on 4.1.7 , 4.1.8, and 4.1.9 beta 1
Tested on default template and custom templates

Why would you want to remove, "What's New?"
  • Save server load
  • Save page load
  • Improve the layout for a more cleaner look
  • Make room on the navigation tab for other modifications
  • Maybe you found a modification that does the same thing, but in a different way

Step 1

Backup your database
------- Something everyone should do no matter what mod, template, or tweak you ever add.


Step 2


In navbar look for the following



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


You are going to wrap it around using this:



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


So when done it will look like this:



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


Step 3


Look for



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


You are again going to wrap it around with this



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


So when done it will look like this:



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


Save and reload


In another browser tab or window, check out the results.
If all is well as it should be.... Congratulation you are done

Wouldnt it be great if VB actually gave you the option to have the what's new tab or not have it. BTW, tried this on 4.1.12 and it did not work.

I already did this on my forum, and this is the exact same way I did it.

Its good to see people post little How-To's like this. Honestly, I think its the little things like this, that matter the most when your editing/adding things to a style.

No longer supported as I no longer use vBulletin having moved to both WoltLab Burning Board and Invision Power Board.

I give 100% permission to reuse, modify, improve, enhance, and redistribute this code as freeware to anyone, everyone, and everywhere.

Good luck
