Solved Confusion with Page Setup

Post by *Flora* on June 3rd 2014, 2:02 am

Hey, so on my website I have my homepage as an HTML page, (gonna change it to portal later) but since the original home page was the forum it won't let me change the description on the forum so it still says home? How can I fix that? And it won't let me make it disappear and make a new one for the forum. Everything is grayed out. Please help.

I'm sorry I didn't understand that.

Do you mean the title in your web browser's tab won't change?

this is in the display header settings. The homepage I want is the top one with the and the one that says /forum is the one I want to edit. When I go onto the /forum one this is what it looks like:

It has the parts I want to edit grayed out so I can't make it how I want to. I don't know what do?

Oh!

Unfortunately, you can't edit that. But you can edit the first one.

Are you trying to make an HTML page your homepage or the portal?

I want to make the /forum say forum on the menu. It has it on a bunch of other forumotion sites so why can't I edit that? It doesn't make sense. Why does it have an option to make a portal/html page the homepage if you have to keep the forum the home.

And I'm going to switch it to a portal later, I just did it as an HTML page because I didn't know you could make it a portal page before like 2 hours ago.

It doesn't look like it did anything and I followed the steps and triple checked it?

Make sure you set to in all pages.

I've modified the code the way you want it, so just add it to your javascript codes.

Code:

$(function() {
document.getElementById('i_icon_mini_Home').nextSibling.nodeValue='Forum';
});

Also, delete the Home one you made so it doesn't get confused.

(for future viewers) Thank you, the code ended up being
Code:
$(function() {
document.getElementById('i_icon_mini_index').nextSibling.nodeValue='Forum';
});
but it worked. Thank you so much <3
