Change Default Navigation Titles

Post by Selvester on January 7th 2014, 7:44 am

So I have just looked through the last four pages of suggestions (sorry, didn't feel like going through all 20 something of them twice in one week) and couldn't find one like this... I do find it a little hard to believe no one has suggested it before but I just couldn't find it. So here it goes. Hopefully I can explain this in a way that makes sense.

My suggestion is basically just to change the default text on the navigation bar. I don't like to use buttons a lot of the time so I just stick with the default text they provide. But I don't like how you can't change this text. For me this frustration is mainly directed at the one that says home. You can look at the navigation bar at the top of the support forum to see what I mean. Where it says 'Home', 'Portal', 'FAQ', ect. Now the majority of the time this isn't a problem for me because I don't use the Portal however when I do the Portal becomes the new home page which people are automatically directed to. Only your main forum button will still say home, even when its not the home.

What I am proposing is to be able to change the default text of the navigation bar. For example make the 'Home' button say 'Forum' instead... Just give us the option to edit the text to fit our forums.

Hopefully that was explained alright and wasn't overly ranty...

No problem, I think it is a great idea. And if they don't change it to "index" or "forum," I think they should at least make it customizable within the AP to say whatever you wish at default. =)

I think it can be done via simple images where the bg is transparent and only the text is there.. but I still see your point of view, so yes, I vote for yes!

This suggestion will only apply to the text navbars, not image navbars.

It actually would be nice to change those texts. The only customization the default navlinks have is to change the image associated with them. While I'm aware you can change the texts with both CSS and Javascript, it would be nice to just change it via an administration option.

The following CSS would change the navlink that corresponds to the homepage :
Code:
a.mainmenu[href="/"] { font-size:0 !important; }
a.mainmenu[href="/"]:after {
font-size:12px;
content:"Forum";
}

Yep. Still would be nice to do it without having to use CSS or Java though.

Bump.
