Solved NAVBAR Home Button URL not editable

Post by Earth ION Energy on February 10th 2013, 1:16 am

Hi everyone!

My first post here!

Is it possible to make the home button go to a different URL.


http://earthionenergy.forumakers.com is the current URL.

What I want to do is create a forum.earthionenergy.com and then make the home button of the forum go to www.earthionenergy.com

The first part I know how to do using a CNAME, but the second part I have yet to find the answer to.

Any help greatly appreciated,

All the best,

Paul Smile

Home button is designated to the index unless you re name it by creating a new button.

The easiest option would be to create a new link and renaming and re-arranging the buttons on the nav bar by going to:

AP>Display>Headers & Navigation>Add customized menu

Hope it helped.

Hi thanks for the tip Avery.

I am partially happy with the result.

The gripe I have is the new "Home" button and now the old home button which says "Forum" as my graphics both have the alt text "Home".

How can I resolve this?

Many thanks,

Paul Smile

Make a thread here: http://help.forumotion.com/f87-forum-buttons-icons

You must use the proper way to ask for graphics you can find the code here: http://help.forumotion.com/t110859-rules-of-the-graphic-design-section

Copy the code and make a new thread and fill it out.

Cheers,

Hi, either I didn't explain very well or you misunderstood what I meant.

Is there a way to change the text that appears when hovering over the Navbars orignal "Home" button.


I had to change the graphic so it read "Forum".

However the text that shows when I hover over it reads Home and seems completely uneditable.

I would like it to say "Forum" or even nothing would work for me also.

Any help welcome.

Cheers,

Paul Smile
