vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (6 votes - 4.83 average) Installs: 59
Released: 25 Sep 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 21
Not Supported Template Edits  

There is always a demand for increased navigation from your vB Board. This modification has been tested on 3.6.x, 3.7.x and 3.8.x

Hardcoding a menu is the best way to add the increased functionaility, without adding server load and queries. This template modificiation explains how to add additional simple navbars to your website. By utilising exisitng vB code from within the Navbar template, the menu will appear on all pages, including in add-ons such as vBa and Photoplog and Photopost.


A working expample can be found at Midlands Weather Forum

The basis of the navigation bar (refered to as the 'Main Code') is as follows:


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

To create a link visible to all usergroups add this code to replace the green section of the main code (above):

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

To create a link visible only to members add this code to replace the green section of the main code (above):

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

Placement is recommended above your existing navbar, due to the "drop down" lists.

Find the following line in your navbar template and place your compiled code above it.

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

Hi Bashy, There are 2 ways round that the first is to remove the following coloured text


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

or you can change the same coloured text to read 1px instead of 0px

thanks for the tute. This is really helpful, I guess I could also add the navbar at the footer if I wanted right?

Could I also duplicate the current navbar so it shows in the footer? if so where should I add it?

Thanks

Yes the idea is you can create as many menu nars as you want. Because it's coded directly into the template there are no additional server loads or queries.

If you were putting it in the footer, I would choose to place it above

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Again be careful of the placement of drop downs if you are going to move/copy your original.

Installed and definitely has saved me from my users getting frustrated of having to scroll to the right and back to the left.

Thank you for sharing this with the rest of us.

Something I'll add to this which I think is pretty useful... <at least it's been useful for me. >

The following will ad an 'ADMIN" link to your Navbar. Only admins will be able to see it.

under:

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

add:

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

Hope you'll find it as useful as I do.
