Solved Changing Navigation Names

Post by Vanilla990 on November 15th 2011, 3:22 pm

Hello,

I have a few questions about the naming of features in the navigation bar on forums.

1. In the Administration Panel where you can view the Header and Navigation for your forums. I have noticed that you cannot edit the names of some of the links because the box is locked. Is there a way I can enable it so I can change the names of parts?

I am aware I could use images, However I don't see that I should have to use images to get the desired design I want when all that I would like to change is the names of some sections. Some of you might be saying "Why do you want to change the names of bits anyway?". I feel that that the "Profile" name should actually say "Settings", although there is a link to your profile in that area, the majority of the things in that section are settings and I would therefore like to adjust the name. I would also like to shorten the name for the message box link as well because "You have no new messages" is too long in my opinion and "Message Box" would be much simpler and neater.

2. Is there a way I can turn off a navigation link so that it is no longer displayed to anyone until it is re-enabled from the Admin Panel?

My reason for asking this question is that with the way my forums is set up or will be set up once I have made some design changes. I don't feel that there needs to be a direct link to "Usergroups" in the navigation and would like to hide this link.


Thanks,
Vanilla990. Smile

Hi,

1.) For the messages use Dions post here
http://help.forumotion.com/t95335-edit-navigation-bar-names#614882
Change the word Inbox to what ever you want.

2.) For the profile you can use this in AP > Modules > JS managment too

Code:
$(function() {
document.getElementById('i_icon_mini_profile').nextSibling.nodeValue='Settings';
});

3.) To hide the Usergroups link you can add this to CSS:

Code:
a[href="/groups"]{
display: none;
}
