Solved How can I adjust the headline of my forum?

Post by Talk on Mon Feb 04, 2013 11:03 am

The main section of my forum TelTalk.org starts with the headline "Forum" followed by the next line named "Forum" again.

How I can change the description of the term "Forum" (especially since it appears twice)?

What is the name of your first category?

It is named: ".tel Domains in General"

The word "Forum" appears twice in front of it.

Take a look at these two threads:

http://help.forumotion.com/t8322-differences-between-forum-and-category

http://help.forumotion.com/t3313-categories-and-forums-creation-and-appearance

I believe the way you have the forums & categories set up it causes the double forum name.

Thank you for the links, but they don't relate to my problem.

The word "Forum" appears in the headline above my categories and forums and is part of the theme I'm using.

Adjusting my categories or forums has no effect for this.

When I tested this on my Invision forum, it did the same thing when I used the option you used to set up the forums and categories. Forum appeared twice. But when I used the medium setting in the bottom group, forum only appears once.

Could you post a screenshot of the page where you set up the forums & categories in the administration panel?

That is true! I used that before too.

But I just got complaints from my forum visitors that my list of 56 (sub-) forums is too long.

That's the reason why I've switched to the new setting (full). I and my visitors like it.

Therefore I like to find a solution without switching back.

Would it be possible to adjust the words in the headline with a CSS code?

How can I exchange the word “forum” with another headline?

Not the best solution but try adding this to your CSS:

Code:
th.forum {
  color: #0076B1 !important;
}

I'm not even sure if this is what you mean.

Thank you very much!

Nice trick by adjusting the font color to the background!

Not exactly what I was asking for, but the result solves my problem too!

I like it; this topic can be closed!

I tried a display:none but that made it go weird. Confused

No problem.

This solution is great, because it makes the useless word "forum" invisible in headlines for the category pages too!
