In progress Change Navigiation Menu To Text/ Add Affiliates

Post by Broomhilda on July 20th 2014, 8:36 am

Hi, I am new on here and very new at building a website...I made some changes and I don't know what I did wrong and how to fix them...at the top you have home, Portal and so on they are words now mine somehow changed to icons and very small icons where you can't hardly see them...how do I change them back to words..

Also, I have 2 small calenders and 2 small affiliates how do I get rid of one of each...

Also, on the Affiliates I have looked everywhere and can't find a way of adding an affiliate button or logo there...

I hope it was ok to do all these at once instead of a half a dozen places..

Thank you for your help in advance...

sorry I wasn't able to give my website link on here for 7 days...

Also, sorry I missed one more thing...I am not able to hide a link to a word how do I do that please...thank you

I found it in your profile, your website.

First of all go to ACP --> Display --> Headers and Navigation --> Display only images in the navbar --> No --> Save

Then let's see what the looks like before moving onto your next points.

I am sorry, I think I am over my head with this website...I am very computer stupid and was trying to build a simple website for my Sims2 but this site is to hard for me to understand...I don't even know what ACP means sorry...and I know I have seen the Headers and Navigation but for the life of me I can't find it now...

Sorry, I am just going to have to find a more simple website to make..

Sorry ACP stands for Admin Control Panel. I should have been clear on that.

Are you wanting to continue with trying to use your forum or are you wanting to look elsewhere?

I am not sure..I am going to look around first and see if there is anything easier to work with...

Don't get me wrong I like the site...I know someone that has one so I figured I could work with it as well...but you have to have some kind of computer skills to be able to build a website on this one...and I don't have enough computer skills to work with this one...

Thank you Derri for your help...I will let you know if I am going to continue using this one or not...sorry

You can add links to other places here:

Administration Panel > Modules > Footer Links
Activate the feature.
Then add the information.

I am going to try this for a bit longer...Ok I have that first one fixed..thank you...

Ok on the next problem I had was on the left side of the website at the bottom I have 2 calenders 2 affiliates and half a chatbox...how do I get rid of 1 calender, 1 affiliates, and the half chat box

Someone answered on the Affiliates so will go check that out and see if I can do something with that...thank you..I already had that as a yest for the footer but still don't know what to do and how to add a button or logo...sorry

I was able to fix the calender, affiliates, and the half chat box...I guess all I need was a day or so rest because this was so overwhelming for me...sorry

Another thing I seen was have locks on some things how do I unlock them..when it says forum is locked...

One more thing for at least today lol..I'm sorry..was hiding a link with a word..I tried that and it didn't work...I just learned how to do that the last few weeks and I really need it now more than ever...thank you..and sorry I am being a pest..

Okay.

So if I've read your above posted correctly you've sorted your issue with the affiliates, calendars and chatbox issue.

If you see something that has 'Forum Locked' on it when you go into a forum you can unlock it by going to -

Admin Control Panel --> General Tab --> Forum --> Configuration

You'll then see all your forums that you've got on your forum board. You'll then need to go to the forum that is locked and click on this button - Editthen you'll see an option that says Forum status and you'll want to click on the drop down box and select Forum Unlock option and then click save.

If it is a topic that is locked then you can unlock it by going down to the bottom left corner of the topic and you should see a button that looks like this: and you can click on that and it will unlock.

To create a link within a word if you click on this button I've put in a red box, it looks like a paper clip



You'll want to put the URL address in the fix box and then text you want the link to appear in, in the second box.

I have 1 of the calenders, 1 of the affiliates boxes that was there gone and the half box of the chatbox gone..

Still haven't found where to place the Affiliates logo or button yet went to the footer and I had already activated that part but can't find where to put them...

I will check out the locked stuff and see what I can do...thank you

On the links I have tried it 2 different ways and both are not working for me...the link is showing up on the page and still not hidden behind a word...but will still try and figure that out...

Thank you Derri and SL Gray for your help...

Will be back hope with good news Smile

If you are wanting to add images to the footer, I believe you will have to modify the footer templates.

I am still not able to find how you lock/unlock...

having other issues now...I got a lot done on the forum and then I went to look at it the way everyone would see it but omgosh...everything I had written is showing it shouldn't be showing it should be hidden behind the title...I looked at someone else's forum that they have made though you guys and mine is not looking like at at all...

Am I doing it wrong...I am going in Admin and then adding the forum that way..should I be making it from the homepage...now when I was making the forum through the Admin. it looks like the way it should be on the home page but the homepage is so messed up what am I doing wrong...

And every time I add something then something that I had already done is not showing up the way I made it...like the color on the heading...I do save everything...is the saving button not working..

I am so confused...

I won't mess with the template itself that html is something I won't even touch...

Did you look at mine..

I would like to have mine like her's where everything that I wrote in there is hidden...everything in her's are hidden all there is is the links that you click on then scroll down and find what you want..

with mine everything is out in the open on the homepage it shouldn't look like that...the only thing that should be there is the links to open and then scroll down to see what is there..nothing else

I think I have for the forum...don't have to redo the whole thing just copy and paste things...I also figured out the lock/unlock...had to do a post in order to figure that one out...sorry

At this time I am going to say that almost everything has been taken care of..and I want to thank all of you that have helped me out...and was patient with me...

As time goes on I am sure I will be back on lol..and your saying omgosh no way lol yes way...but I will do my best to try and work it out myself for a couple of days before I bug you all again...

Thank you all so very much for your help and patients..Very Happy

I thought I had everything..the Affiliates...

Now on BeckyLynn's site she has her's on the left side where the Affiliates you Forumotion, Facebook, Twitter and Google are..I hate Facebook and Twitter want nothing to do with them would like to have the Affiliates on there but for the life of me I still can't figure out how to put them there...Where else on the homepage can I put them where others can see them..button or logo
